Watson-Marlow Introduces Food Grade Hose for Bredel Pumps
Watson-Marlow, a globally recognized leader of positive displacement pumps, now offers a new food grade hose for its heavy duty Bredel pumps. The new F-NBR hoses meet FDA and EC regulations, offering better wear resistance and up to 80 percent longer life for improved production efficiency and process/product safety.
Peristaltic pumps are used in the food and beverage industries to dose additives or transfer abrasive, shear sensitive and viscous substances. Manufacturers in these industries can attest to the need for process uptime. Watson-Marlow’s food grade hose pump enables manufacturers to better meet the perennial requirement for more process uptime.
Bredel hose pumps can handle a range of products, including soft fruit, shell fish, abrasive yeast, finings and fluids containing high concentrations of hard solids such as whole spices. The pumps are also highly hygienic; unlike other pumps, which incorporate several moving parts that can lead to microbial growth and contamination, Bredel pumps have no direct contact with the transferred product at any stage of the production process. Additionally, the new F-NBR hose can be sterilized in-place at full velocity without the need for a bypass.
F-NBR hoses are manufactured in accordance with cGMP guidelines and are available in size 10-100 mm.
