Falmouth, Cornwall, UK – Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group has released two larger models of process pumps for industrial, environmental and food industry applications
The line of pumps feature an enhanced operator and control system interface, and a bright colour display, said the company, which is based in the United Kingdom with offices worldwide.
With no valves or seals in the product stream and strong flow turndown, Watson-Marlow 530, 630, and 730 peristaltic pumps play a role in the metering of aggressive and shear-sensitive fluids without contamination. The pumped fluid is contained within the tube, providing complete isolation of the fluid.
Backed by a five-year warranty, the new pumps are designed for harsh industrial applications.
The pumps are designed to reduce downtime, optimize metering and offer the ultimate in process flexibility – one range of pumps for all flow demands. Flow range extends from 0.000000264 gallons per minute (gal/min) up to 14.53 gal/min with the 730. Both the new 630 and 730 are available with four drive options and two pumpheads for single channel flows. The 630 offers a precise 2650:1 speed control range, which is increased to 3600:1 on the 730.
A new, simple-to-use HMI requiring minimal key presses helps reduce the chance of costly mistakes. Furthermore, users and process engineers will benefit from enhanced process security with the addition of a three-level PIN lock. The pumps are self-contained and easily configurable, so there is no need for separate variable frequency drives or complex control devices. Control options include manual, remote, analogue and RS485 digital communications, along with integrated PROFIBUS networking capabilities.
Watson-Marlow process pumps are used in many industries where the metering of aggressive chemicals is required. For example, the process pumps range are widely used in water and wastewater treatment for metering sodium hypochlorite and other common disinfection chemicals – resulting in reduced maintenance and the elimination of vapour lock, the company said.
