Peristaltic pump range completed

30 July 2017

With the addition of two larger models, Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group (WMFTG) has now completed its range of process pumps for food industry applications. The existing 530 model is joined by the 630 and 730, which feature an enhanced operator and control system interface, and a bright colour display. 

With no valves or seals in the product stream and an impressive flow turndown, Watson-Marlow 530, 630, and 730 peristaltic pumps can play an important role for the metering of shear-sensitive fluids without contamination. The pumped fluid is totally contained within the tube, providing complete isolation of the fluid. 

The pumps are designed to reduce downtime, optimise metering and offer process flexibility with a single range of pumps to meet all flow demands. Flow range now extends from microlitre up to 55 l/min with the 730. Both the new 630 and 730 are available with four drive options and two pumpheads for single channel flows. The 630 offers a precise 2650:1 speed control range, which is increased to 3600:1 on the 730.

A new, simple-to-use HMI has been added to the pumps. This requires minimal key presses to reduce the opportunity for mistakes. Control options include manual, remote, analogue and RS485 digital communications, along with integrated Profibus networking capabilities.
