Bredel has launched it SPX100D hose pump for challenging sludge applications to SPX run dry and handle high grit or air entrained sludge. Offering flows up to 400 gpm, the SPX100D can be used for scum, thickener underflow, belt press or centrifuge feed. With a self-loading design, hose replacement is quickly achieved where the pump sits.
Bredel said that unlike other pump types, the highly abrasive materials do not affect pump life. The SPX100D also provides easy access to shims and shoes and the shaft design ensures fail-safe operations. Discharge pressure reaches up to 232 psi and operating speeds reach up to 30 rpm for continuous use and up to 38 rpm for intermittent use.
Materials are fully contained within the hose element and don't come in contact with the moving parts of the pump, preventing abrasive wear. There is no drive realignment or off-site rebuilding of the pump required. Both pump rotors are always fully and centrally supported by their own high strength bearings.
The Bredel pump also eliminates many pieces of ancillary equipment such as run-dry protection and seal water flushing systems and in-line check vales and is backed by a full two year warranty. www.caprari.it
