Watson-Marlow Introduces Low-Flow Peristaltic Pumpheads

Supplier News

Watson-Marlow Bredel  has launched a new range of easy-loading, low-flow peristaltic pumpheads for industries that demand a high level of hygiene.  

The 114 pumphead has been designed by Watson-Marlow Alitea in response to calls for an advanced, low-flow pumphead in a compact configuration.  

The new peristaltic pumpheads complement Watson-Marlow's existing 313 pumphead, which has been used in applications ranging from milkshake vending to medical equipment and machinery.  

The low-flow pumpheads are built for durable performance with strong materials to provide chemical/detergent resistance and temperature stability, while fixings and ball bearings are manufactured from high-grade stainless steel.  

Gentle tube handling ensures tube life is maximised at all times.
