Apex - New hose pumps from Bredel (Watson-Marlow)

Designed to suit all dosing, metering and transfer applications from 2.8 to 1,200 litre/hour across a broad range of applications, the new Apex pumps are specially suitable for processing plants. Unlike other pump types, Apex hose pumps have no expensive wearing components such as seals, valves, membranes, stators, rotors or glands. Subsequently, they are ideally suited for handling "difficult" fluids - abrasive, corrosive, viscous, shear-sensitive, crystallising or even fluids presenting a combination of these properties.

Precise dosing capability

Offering best performance for pressures up to 8 bar, along with reliable and stable flow up 1200 l/h (with 20 mm diameter hose), makes Apex a good choice for ongoing, precise dosing. This is boosted by a new generation of long-lasting hoses that also supports repeatable accuracy when dosing additives, while continuous pump speeds up to 100 rpm provide a wider capacity range in comparison with alternative hose pumps.

Ultimate process continuity

Users of the Apex pumps benefit from extremely low maintenance requirements, giving extended uptime and therefore process continuity. With cast aluminium housing providing superior heat dissipation, robust direct-coupled technology and precision machined hose elements, Apex provides decreased cost of ownership, reduced operating costs and low inventory stocking.

Ease of scalability

Among the benefits of the new pumps is ease of scalability. While Apex offers optimum performance for low flow transfer applications, should process requirements change, easy upgrades are achievable without having to buy a new pump. This is because Apex models are three pumps in one, with a single pump body adjustable for three hose sizes (10, 15 and 20 mm) when production volumes rise.

Proven technology for a range of applications

The all-round performance of Apex models means they are suited to applications ranging from lime dosing and slurry transfer, through to handling food and beverage products.
