Watson-Marlow’s durable Bredel SPX hose pumps reduce maintenance downtime and increase profitable production when pumping abrasive paper coatings. Using no valves, seals or rotors in the product stream, the SPX can run dry and withstand pressures to 232 psi. Advanced hose technology enables repeatable continuous 1% metering accuracy of hard-to-handle viscous, corrosive, or particle-laden fluids at flows up to 400 gpm.

The Bredel SPX hose pump allows for uninterrupted paper production by eliminating the need for seals or valves that can clog, leak or corrode to create unwanted maintenance costs and production downtime. With the SPX design, pumped material only comes into contact with the hose, leading to longer pump life. Additionally, hose replacement is quick and easy due to a self-loading design.

Unlike other pump types, the SPX pump life is unaffected by the highly abrasive nature of lime slurries, corrosive fluids and other viscous materials. The combination of these features makes the SPX an enduring solution for challenging pulp and paper applications such as coatings, green liquor and black liquor soap, alum, latex, glue, acids and alkalis, polymer, ink, kaolin, lime slurry, and titanium dioxide
