WMFTS highlights peristaltic and sinusoidal pumps

news item image
Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Solutions (WMFTS) has showcased a variety of peristaltic and sinusoidal pumps.
Watson-Marlow cased drive peristaltic pumps offer superior flow stability, providing accurate and repeatable process control for nutrient feed fermentor applications.
The end product of both plant-based and cultivated processes can be extremely difficult to pump due to its sticky and viscous nature.
MasoSine Certa pumps from WMFTS can handle these products with ease due to the sinusoidal rotor that delivers a lower shear, gentle pumping action for the transfer of high viscosity end product – even when viscosity changes frequently.
Reducing energy consumption and the associated costs of handling viscous products, Sine pump technology typically requires up to 50% less power than lobe or circumferential piston pumps. The savings increase in line with viscosity – so the higher the viscosity, the higher the savings.
Watson-Marlow cased drive pumps for the alternative protein cultivated industry offer ease-of-application, with no hard piping required, as well as near-zero maintenance, sterility, and field-proven performance for fermentor feed. Flexible and scalable, without changing contact materials or losing performance, Watson-Marlow peristaltic pumps ensure the process remains controlled and repeatable at every scale.
Using Watson-Marlow pumps for fermentation provides gentle handling and superior hygiene. The fluid is metered through a tube from source to delivery and does not contact the pump at any time. Changing the tube is quick and easy, offering significant savings on downtime costs.
Watson-Marlow process pumps share comprehensive remote, analogue, digital and PROFIBUS communication protocols, providing the accuracy and repeatability necessary to ensure the best alternative protein yields and end product.
