New Watson-Marlow 530 Pumps Ensure Safe, Accurate and Intuitive Operation for Industrial and Environmental Applications


Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group, the world leader in peristaltic pumps and associated fluid path technologies, has introduced its new 530 peristaltic cased pump for metering and transfer applications such as surface coating, printing and lime addition. The cost effective pump offers easier operation and greater versatility coupled with high levels of accuracy.

New features

The new 530 models meet the demands of rugged and often remote environments and are built to operate 24/7 without interruption. Furthermore, it is possible to quickly check control parameters and avoid expensive errors with visual status through a bright colour display, while an intuitive menu structure makes for confident and easy operator interaction.

Users will also benefit from the 530 models’ integrated Profibus networking capabilities. With two-way, real-time communications, the 530 range offers increased diagnostic capability and faster response. This helps to optimise process control and minimise plant downtime.

Drive and pumphead options

The versatile Watson-Marlow 530 range of process pumps offers four drive options and nine pumphead variants. This enables users to choose from manual operation to fully automated control, including the ability to link up to 16 pumps and provide real-time communication.

The pumps deliver flow rates from 0.0001 ml/min to 3.5 litre/min. It is the pumphead which determines both the flow rate and the pressure that can be achieved to match the needs of the specific process. 530 pumps can be fitted with either continuous tubing pumpheads, or with LoadSure tube element pumpheads for pressures up to 7 bar.

Maximum process uptime

Meeting the demands of rugged and often remote environments, the new 530 pumps deliver maximum process uptime and are built to operate 24/7 without interruption.

In addition, the 530 pumps have no expensive seals, valves or diaphragms, and do not suffer gas locking, corrosion or clogging. Furthermore, they require just a single spare part inventory – the tube.

Pump and tubing have equal importance

As the only company to manufacture both the cased pumps and the peristaltic tubing, Watson-Marlow customers can be sure than their new pump will work right first time – and every time.

For the new 530 models, the company’s long life and chemical resistant Marprene is the ideal choice for industrial applications. Marprene industrial grade thermoplastic elastomer tubing offers wide chemical compatibility and long life, along with low gas permeability.

Error-free tube loading

Depending on a user’s process needs, the 530 models can feature LoadSure tube elements, which fit into position for simple, error-free tube loading. Using the patented LoadSure D-connectors and easy-grip clutched rotor, the tube element can be changed in less than one minute without the need for special skills.

When it comes to confectionary production, the transfer of highly viscous liquid sugar syrups can be troublesome to many pump types. Able to provide testimony is the Brazil factory of a well-known fruit jelly sweet manufacturer, where production engineers were becoming frustrated with unscheduled maintenance and downtime due to the failure of lobe pumps.
