Verderflex peristaltic pump installed at the Coddle Creek Water Treatment Plant, North Carolina

Supplier News

All Pumps Supplies  imports and distributes the global Verderflex pump range in Australia and New Zealand for applications such as dosing and transfer duties in wastewater treatment plants.

After more than three submersible pumps failing in just over a year, the versatility and reliability of the Verderflex peristaltic pump were chosen to be installed at the Coddle Creek Water Treatment Plant in North Carolina, dosing Powder Activated Carbon (PAC) from a wet well.

The plant called on Verder GPM to help find a solution to their problem which was the location of the pump 8 metres above the bottom of the well. This wasn’t allowing the pump to self prime and draw products up the big suction lift.

Given the flow rate, suction and discharge pressures needed, Verder GPM chose the Verderflex VF15 model hose pump with its 15mm internal diameter, natural rubber hose.

The results allow a very high dosing accuracy, a high suction lift and low cost of maintenance. The fluid is contained within the reinforced hose so there is no possibility of fluid clogging anywhere.

Maintenance is as simple as changing the hose and therefore limits downtime.

Using a flow paced controller, the Verderflex hose pump can transfer and dose variable flows in accordance with the plant’s demand.

These pumps can also gently pump abrasive suspensions such as PAC and lime slurries without the need for any check valves.

Use of the high pressure rotor and Verderflex’s unique reinforced hose technology has created the suction lift needed to easily manage the 8 metre lift needed by Coddle Creek.

The Verderflex VF15 pump has been installed for over a year and the plant has now clocked up over 3,700 hours running time with no problems and without having to change the original hose.

Verderflex, supplied by All Pumps Supplies in Australia, understand the benefits that peristaltic hose and tube pumps bring and offer the most advanced and extensive range of pump models to suit virtually any pumping application.
