Verderflex® is delighted to announce the launch of the Dura 35 at Achema, the latest addition to the ground-breaking Verderflex Dura range of peristaltic hose pumps.
The Dura range is a genuine advancement in peristaltic pump technology that offers:
- Longer hose lives
- Less frequent and shorter downtime
- Saving space
- Using less power
- Being more economical to run
Until now you could not get a Dura that could pump more than 1,700l/hr (450 US GPH), but now things are getting bigger and better.
The new Dura 35 delivers a maximum continuous flow rate of 3,180l/hr or 840GPH at pressures up to 16bar or 230psi. Weighing just 125kg and taking up to 70% less floor space than similar pumps, the Dura 35 will free up vital working areas to replace outdated technology.
Featuring advances in component design to reduce maintenance time and ease installation, the Dura 35 removes the need for specially trained engineers, reducing plant costs and increasing profits.
Already exhibited at Pollutec in Lyon, France, and in the US, the new Dura has caused quite a stir in the industry. See it for yourself at Achema, hall eight, stand U34 to U37.
Duncan Brown, sales manager for Verderflex, said: “I’m very excited about the new addition of the Dura 35 to the range. We have seen massive success with our existing Dura products and now we have taken another step in revolutionising hose pumps. We are adding further models to the range soon so more industries can enjoy the many benefits of Verderflex Dura pumps.”
Features and benefits of the Dura hose pump
Dura has fewer system components than other peristaltic pumps, reducing downtime with a novel drive configuration that requires much less space. Running at a significantly lower operating temperature than equivalent pumps, hose life is improved by up to 40%.
Dura offers greater reliability over other pumps due to its rigid drive connection. The motor is mounted directly over the bearings so there is no overhung load, further reducing the number of parts in what is already a very simple and elegant design. The rotor has been designed so that it requires no shims, simplifying installation and reducing the Dura’s overall power consumption.
Designed so the drive is mounted on a torque arm and totally isolated from the housing, there is an air gap between pump casing and gearbox that protects the pump lubricant, inside casing and the drive’s gearbox. They can never cross contaminate and there is no need to remove the drive when servicing the pump.
A one-piece taper lock flange connection speeds up hose changes and the universal slotted connection offers a one-size-fits-all solution, meeting the requirements of ANSI, JIS and PN16, improving parts availability.
Dura also offers health and safety benefits in the form of quieter action and drive configuration.
