Verderflex peristaltic hose pumps, available from Global Pumps offer proven performance in pumping abrasive slurries and shear sensitive fluids, commonly found in the mining industry.
Previously used only in the laboratories and various specialised applications, peristaltic hose pumps are now used extensively in many applications thanks to their reduced cost.
Verderflex peristaltic hose pumps offer several benefits over conventional centrifugal pumps or rotary pumps in mining applications.
Traditional centrifugal pumps used in mining environments feature an impeller that is worn out frequently due to abrasive fluids, leading to pump failure, high downtime and high maintenance costs.
Verderflex hose pumps are rubber-lined and do not suffer abrasive wear with the replaceable hose being the only wearing part.
Peristaltic pumps only require the internal hose to be replaced to ensure proper pumping of the fluid. The hose can be changed easily and different hoses can be used for different applications, helping to save costs further.
Easy installation and operation
Peristaltic hose pumps can be easily installed while operation is simplified by the self-priming design.
No contact with abrasive fluids
Peristaltic hose pumps are ideal for pumping highly aggressive or abrasive fluids since the fluid does not come in contact with any moving parts such as the gears or seals.
Pumps variety of fluids
Verderflex peristaltic pumps can be used to pump a wide range of fluids with different chemical compositions and viscosities.
Close tolerances between parts not required
Rotary pumps require very close tolerances between the rotor and the casing for optimum performance of the pump, which results in extensive maintenance requirement. Peristaltic pumps do not need such close tolerances between the parts, resulting in little maintenance and lower overall operational costs.
