Bredel Hose Pump For Sludge


Sewage Pump Ideal for Handling Sludge with Grit/Abrasion

Bredel hose pumps reliably handle harsh materials, including abrasive sewage and slurry, making them ideal for feeding primary or thickened sludge to digesters or filter presses.

Advanced hose technology enables Bredel pumps to handle very viscous grit-filled sludge dependably for extended periods of time. Peristaltic hose pumps are virtually maintenance-free, with no expensive seals to replace, no check valves to clog, and no rotors and stators to wear. Unlike other pump types, the highly abrasive nature of sludge does not affect pump life. Hose replacement is quick and easy, so minimal downtime periods are needed and only one spare part – the hose needs to be inventoried. The combination of these features makes Bredel hose pumps an ideal solution for tough environmental applications.

Bredel hose pumps also eliminate many pieces of ancillary equipment such as run-dry protection and seal water flushing systems and in-line check valves and are backed by a two year warranty.
