Watson-Marlow Bredel announces metering pump for antimicrobial treatment chemicals


Watson-Marlow Bredel, the leading manufacturer of peristaltic pumps, announces the 520 Series peristaltic pump for the handling of antimicrobial treatment chemicals like monochloramine and sodium hypochlorite.

Ideal for use in the food waste sector, the combination of tube elements and pumphead design allows the 520 Series to be utilized in the accurate metering, dosing and transferring of these chemicals, often used to reduce microbial populations in sterilized chiller water found in poultry processing facilities and other areas of the food industry.

Entrained gas, often generated by the hypo, is pumped with ease, eliminating the occurrence of vapor locking that prevents conventional pumps from functioning properly. The 520 Series contain fluids within the tube at all times and never allows the monochloramine and sodium hypochlorite to come into contact with the pump mechanism, ensuring dependable, accurate fluid handling at all times.

This helps provide predictable life costs for the pump as the tube is the only part that will need replacing. The 520 Series pumps and patented LoadSure elements guarantee correct loading every time, as well as easy one-minute maintenance with no snaking, twisting or pinching.

Every Watson-Marlow Bredel peristaltic pump is an inherent metering pump with repeatability at 99.5%. Many models include integral digital drives and displays in washdown enclosures. These self-priming pumps accommodate flow rates from 0.1 microliter to 350 gpm and are extremely durable, withstanding pressures up to 232 psi.

There are no internal universal joints, valves, dead corners or glands to impede flow and these pumps are reversible for back flushing lines. They can also run dry indefinitely without damage and provide up to a 30-foot suction lift.
