Peristaltic Pump features energy rating of less than 1.1 kW.

Press Release Summary:

Based on torque-coupled design, Verderflex Dura Pump displaces up to 12 Bar and holds rigid when tested to pressures in excess of 30 Bar. Unit can handle up to 80% solid content for products with high concentration of dense matter. Featuring solid rotor design that requires no shims, pump offers ±3% accuracy and ±1% repeatability. One-size-fits-all, single-piece, taper-lock flange connection speeds hose change and meets requirements of ANSI, JIS, and DIN PN16.

Verder Stretches the Boundaries with Launch of New Peristaltic Pump

Global peristaltic pump specialist, Verder, has launched a revolutionary performance engineered pump - Verderflex Dura, which is the most advanced peristaltic pump design on the market today.

The Verderflex Dura is a new generation of hose pumps (named Dura 10, Dura 15 & Dura 25), which have exceptional dosing features. Created for use in industries such as Brewing, Ceramics, Chemicals, Manufacturing, Mining and Water & Waste, Verderflex Dura is based on a torque-coupled design offering a range of benefits including an extremely small footprint (up to 70 per cent less plant 'real estate' than other pumps), high energy efficiency and low capital installation costs.

Rigorous testing by the Company shows it has high performance and reliability levels allowing users to maximise 'up-time', and its fewer system components reduces both maintenance time and repair costs.

James Gooder, product development engineer at Verder, says: "Verderflex Dura has been designed to incorporate a number of features such as the unique torque-coupled design that gives greater reliability and therefore lower maintenance costs.

"And with operational noise levels reduced by nearly a quarter, Verderflex Dura also offers important health and safety benefits and reduced liability."

With a solid rotor design that requires no shims, Verderflex Dura uses dramatically less power consumption than other pumps, and its energy rating of EF1 (<1.1kw) provides much lower capital running costs.

The Dura pump's reduced operating temperature significantly improves hose life. It has an improved frame design and a new function of a 'one size fits all' single-piece taper-lock flange connection, which speeds up hose change and meets the requirements of ANSI, JIS & DIN PN16.

Verderflex Dura offers high levels of accuracy (+/-3 per cent) and repeatability (+/-1 per cent), particularly where there is a need for difficult media to be moved, such as by-products or high-viscosity liquids and it can handle up to 80 per cent solid content for products with a high concentration of dense matter.

It also has the ability to pump at high pressure - displacing up to 12Bar, and still holds rigid when tested to pressures in excess of 30Bar (435PSI).

Mr Gooder adds: "We're really excited about Verderflex Dura and are confident that demand will be high. Its launch demonstrates our constant investment in both innovation and application technology."

Verder Ltd has been part of the European Verder Group since 1996 following the merger of Pumping Services Ltd, Thomas Matthew Pumps Ltd and Global Pumping Systems. It has been producing peristaltic pumps for over 25 years. The group has an annual turnover of over £80 million and employs c300 people in 15 countries - Austria, Belgium, China, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Holland, Hungary, Japan, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, South Africa, the United Kingdom and the United States.

The Frost and Sullivan report 'European Positive Displacement Pumps market (2000)' claims the market size to be around $1.2bn with peristaltic pumps accounting for 6.7 per cent at $80m, this includes lab pumps and industrial hose pumps and spares. The UK market for peristaltic pumps is estimated to be worth $8.8m.The Mintel 'Pumps (Industrial) Report, May 2002' estimates the UK Positive Displacement Pumps market to be worth around £101 million with other PD pumps including peristaltic pumps to be worth around £30 million.
