Watson-Marlow To Showcase Qdos Chemical Metering Solutions And Bredel Heavy Duty Sludge Pumps At WEFTEC 2022

Visit Booth 7047 to view reliable and cost-effective pump technology

Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Solutions (WMFTS) is showcasing its reliable and cost-effective pump technology for the water and wastewater industries at WEFTEC 2022, the water quality event. WEFTEC 2022 will be held at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, New Orleans, Louisiana from October 10-12, 2022. Visit booth 7047 to see its Qdos range of peristaltic chemical metering pumps with new Qdos mounting solutions and the Bredel line of heavy-duty sludge pumps.

On display at the booth will be the Qdos range of chemical metering pumps, ideal for myriad chemical metering applications in water and wastewater treatment facilities. With accurate linear flow rates from 0.001 to 31.7 gallons per hour at 100 psi irrespective of fluid viscosity, Qdos pumps were specifically designed to reduce chemical metering costs compared to conventional solenoid or stepper-driven diaphragm metering pumps and do so with safety being a top priority.

Qdos pumps are offered with wall, floor or tote mounting options via standard and custom skid systems and enclosures. Qdos skid and POD systems feature a calibration column, pressure gauge isolator, pressure relief valve and piping. A pressure relief valve ensures pump and piping are protected against over-pressure. The POD system offers additional protection from environmental conditions, but the secondary containment also protects operators. When utilized with a Qdos pump, the POD offers double containment for additional safety. All Qdos pumps and mounting options come with a three-year warranty.

The Bredel heavy duty sludge pumps, also on display, are ideal for most sludge types including centrifuge and belt press feed. They feature only one wearing part – the hose – so there are no rotors, stators, U-joints or lobes to replace and no mechanical seals or packing to leak. Providing superior abrasive handling, Bredel pumps can handle flows to 475 gallons per minute (GPM) with suction lift to 30 feet, and are dry running and reversible.

Bredel hose pumps and Qdos chemical metering pumps do not require high-cost ancillaries such as degassing or back pressure valves, nor run-dry protection or seal-water flush systems to operate and both pump ranges provide long maintenance intervals, lowering the total cost of ownership. The sealed Qdos ReNu pumphead with integral leak detection, eliminates operator exposure to dangerous chemicals and does not require the pump to run during servicing.

Also at the booth, will be the revolutionary CWT peristaltic pump. This pump is the world's first peristaltic pump that does not require a tube or hose and offers multiple times the life of traditional tubing pumps.
