Four programmable pumps, one drive

There are two features that make the new Verderflex® Smart industrial pump an important advance in low pressure dosing. Capable of handling viscous, abrasive or chemically aggressive liquids, it is ideal for applications requiring frequent tube changes.

This is because the pump has a specially designed top-loading tube clamping mechanism to make tube changeovers exceptionally quick and easy. An automatic clamp locks the tube in place and each unit has an integral safety interlock that automatically stops the pump whenever the saddle is opened.

Every Verderflex® Smart pump can drive up to four heads from the same common pump controls using a clear, easily accessible, backlit display. Each head delivers the same flow rate as they all run at the same speed. Not only is this a far more cost effective option than using four independent pumps but it is also space saving. This ability is believed to be exclusive to the Verderflex® range.

This highly robust pump is designed for a broad range of applications requiring accurate and repeatable dosing across a wide range of industrial sectors including pharmaceutical manufacture and chemical processing.
This new pump can be controlled manually with on/off, clockwise/anti-clockwise operation and speed control buttons big enough to allow the pump to be operated even when the user is wearing gloves. It can also be remotely controlled through in-process sensors such as 4 to 20mA current loops or can run pre-programmed batches stored in the pump's memory setup using the simple and easy to use menu structure.

The Verderflex Smart is available with a choice of pump heads delivering flow rates from 0.25ml/min up to 27,000 ml/min, with working pressures up to 4 bar, depending on the tube size and material being used. The pump head is manufactured from the chemical resistant polymer, POM and anodised aluminium; the control unit is housed in a robust IP55 rated powder-coated aluminium enclosure. Verderflex® Smart pumps are supplied with a three roller head as standard but a six roller low pulsation option is also available.
