Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Solutions (WMFTS) highlights its range of Qdos chemical metering pumps for chemical processing and OEM applications. 

  • Pumps are ideal for chemical processing and OEM applications

The Qdos range features a simple drop-in installation that eliminates the ancillary equipment required by diaphragm pump alternatives while maintaining accurate, linear, and repeatable metering for all chemical processing conditions. 

Qdos peristaltic chemical metering pumps have flow rates ranging from 0.001 to 32 USGPH at up to 100 psi with +/- 1% accuracy. An intuitive menu offers advanced control features including fluid level monitoring, line priming, fluid recovery, leak detection, and flow calibration.

Qdos pumps are available with either 110V AC or 12-24V DC. The 12-24V DC power option increases the range of Qdos applications involving remote applications where 110V AC power supply is not available. 

Qdos pumps offer long maintenance intervals, and have no valves or seals to clog, leak or corrode. Furthermore, the pumps feature no-tools maintenance with quick and easy pump head replacement, reducing the impact of process downtime and lowering the total cost of ownership.

Built for simplicity in installation, operation, and maintenance the Qdos range of pumps are adaptable to fit all chemical processing and OEM applications.

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 a 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.

Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Solutions (WMFTS) is now fitting newly-designed components to its class-leading range of MasoSine Certa pumps, benefiting companies with COP (clean-out-of-place) or post-CIP (clean-in-place) inspection requirements. Already cleaner than any lobe or circumferential piston pump, Certa pumps featuring the new parts — which include a new O-ring seal system, hexagonal locking screw and weld-on hinge — elevate ease-of-use, hygiene and safety to even higher levels.

In combination with optimal process efficiency and minimal TCO (total cost of ownership), Certa pumps meet the highest standards in hygiene and cleanability. Designed primarily for CIP processes, Certa pumps do not require stripping down to component level for cleaning between batches or before use. However, some customer processes stipulate regular strip-downs regardless, either to clean the pump as part of a COP requirement, or to check for cleanliness after a CIP cycle. The new components for the Certa range have been designed with these processes in mind.

“The new O-Ring seal system is designed for applications that require frequent assembly/disassembly procedures,” explained Florian Walter, Product Manager for MasoSine. “It’s available for all MasoSine Certa pump sizes and can be retrofitted to existing pumps without the need of a pump modification. The O-Ring seal system is also less expensive than a mechanical seal,” Walter said.

“Another important ease-of-use improvement on the latest Certa pumps is the introduction of a hexagonal locking screw,” added Walter. “Now, users can easily release the new locking screw to remove the pump rotor, without special tools. Just like the new O-Ring seal, the locking screw is purpose-designed for frequent disassembly/re-assembly.

“With safety in mind, a new weld-on hinge option is now available for the Certa 400 and larger pump models. This new hinge option takes the weight of the front cover, thus allowing users to have their hands free for cleaning or inspection of the pump rotor or gate,” concluded Walter.
