Visit Booth 1013 to view pumps ideal for pulp and paper applications

Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Solutions (WMFTS) is showcasing its Bredel heavy-duty hose pumps and Qdos chemical metering pumps for pulp and paper applications at TAPPICon, which will be held April 22-26, 2023, at the Cobb Galleria Centre in Atlanta, GA, Booth 1013.

The Bredel heavy-duty hose pumps on display provide high metering accuracy and excellent resistance to the viscous and abrasive chemicals commonly used in the pulp and paper industry. Starch, colorants, coatings and abrasive pigments are no problem for Bredel. 

Unlike diaphragm, rotary lobe, and PC pumps, the peristaltic design of Bredel hose pumps contains no moving parts that come into contact with the product, and no seals, ball-checks, diaphragms, glands, immersed rotors, stators, or pistons to leak, clog, corrode or replace.

Bredel hose pumps also eliminate the need for ancillary equipment such as dry run protection, seal water flush systems and in-line check valves. A simple hose change takes only minutes and can be performed in-situ without special tools or skilled personnel. 

Visitors to the booth can also see Qdos chemical metering pumps, which are ideal for a wide variety of pulp and paper applications, including metering defoamers, dyes, biocides, bleach and wax emulsions. 

The precision chemical dosing technologies found in Qdos pumps also help paper mills deliver a significant reduction in energy usage and greenhouse gas emissions. Delivering flow rates that remain constant right up to 100 psi, Qdos peristaltic chemical metering pumps give users a unique advantage over diaphragm metering pumps. 

Qdos pumps offer long maintenance intervals – reducing the impact of process downtime and lowering the overall cost of ownership. Unlike diaphragm metering pumps, Qdos pumps have no need for ancillary equipment and ensure accurate, linear, and repeatable metering across all process conditions, with simple one-minute maintenance.
