The SPX10 and SPX15 hose pumps use 10mm and 15mm hoses respectively, and offer advantages such as improved durability, ease of maintenance and 30% smaller footprint than previous models.
Designed to fit 10mm and 15mm hoses, the patented direct-coupled design of the SPX10 and SPX15 hose pumps ensures perfect alignment of the pumphead and drive.
The hose pumps do not feature seals, valves, diaphragms, stators, glands or other costly hardware, simplifying operation and reducing running costs since only the hose requires replacement.
The simple hose clamping and flange design allows users to change the hose easily in less time.
Maintenance and set-up time are further reduced thanks to the greased-for-life pump bearings, which are incorporated into the cast-iron SPX pumphead.
An additional feature of the SPX 10 and 15 hose pumps is an innovative leak-proof zone, which has been created between the pumphead bearings and the gearbox bearings.
The new SPX 10 and 15 series hose pumps typically provide flow rates of up to 160 litres/hour (120rpm) and 600 litres/hour respectively at pressures of up to 7.5 bar.
They are particularly suited to handling abrasive fluids such as lime slurry, kalic, ferric chloride and sodium hypochlorite.
The unique direct-coupled design of the SPX range provides all the performance, reliability and ease of maintenance benefits of bareshaft (long-coupled) designs with the compact advantages of close-coupled pumps.
The addition of the two new models to the SPX pump family allows users to choose from a range of sizes from 10mm to 100mm depending on the requirements of the application.
All Watson-Marlow Bredel SPX series hose pumps conform to EHEDG and ATEX standards.
