Verderflex hose, dosing pumps offer viable treatment solutions

Sponsored by


June 10, 2014 -- An industrial waste water treatment company required a cost-effective solution to pumping polyelectrolyte. Existing helical rotor pumps were expensive to run and maintain. As such, the Verderflex Dura Hose Pump from Verder International offered the customer a dosing solution that offered long hose life and lowered maintenance costs.

The Challenge

The plant engineers approached Verderflex distributor, Global Pumps Australia for a solution to the following problems:

  • The existing helical rotor pumps were expensive to run and maintain.
  • The replacement pump would have to be able to transfer liquid polymer, which is a thick, viscous liquid mixed with a 30 percent kerosene (hydrocarbon) carrier.
  • The pump had to be compatible with the client's existing system.
  • The hose would have to last a minimum of three months.

The Verderflex Dura Hose Pump
The Solution

Global Pumps analyzed the customer's current systems, and the Verderflex peristaltic Dura hose pump was selected for the following reasons:

  • Peristaltic pumps have a low-shear operation -- ideal for shear-sensitive products like polymer.
  • The Dura has the ability to handle viscous liquids.
  • The dosing capability is within ±5% accuracy.
  • A service is easy as the hose is only one wearable part in contact with the fluid. The innovative flange design allows quick and easy removal and fitting.
  • The Dura provides longer hose life than conventional pumps.

The Result

Verderflex's Dura Hose Pump has now been installed for more than 1 year. The customer has reduced their process downtime, improved their operational efficiency and reduced the overall maintenance cost after moving to peristaltic pumping technology.
