Verderflex peristaltic hose pumps distributed in Australia and New Zealand by Global Pumps are designed to handle highly abrasive, corrosive and viscous fluids.
These peristaltic pumps are proving their worth in gold mining, which involves the pumping of a number of corrosive and hazardous slurries. Gold mining is one of the most important mining industries in Australia and New Zealand.
Verderflex peristaltic hose pumps are designed without seals, glands and valves, with the hose being the only part of the pump that comes in contact with the fluid. The hose is made of reinforced rubber, which is highly resistant to abrasion and corrosion.
Traditional centrifugal pumps used in these gold mines have been facing a number of maintenance related problems, causing significant downtime and loss of production hours. Having successfully installed Verderflex hose pumps, the mines are highly satisfied with their performance in pumping the corrosive fluids.
Having experienced the reliability of Verderflex peristaltic hose pumps, the gold mines have standardised on the brand with some companies completely replacing their existing pumps in the processing plant.
Key features of Verderflex peristaltic hose pumps:
- Zero leakage pumps cause very little downtime
- Long hose life with reinforced rubber construction
- Allows dry running and self-priming
- Gentle pumping action with high suction lift
- Can easily handle viscous fluids and slurries containing solid particles
