Verder Liquids, part of The Verder Group, a global leader in advanced industrial and niche market pump solutions, is pleased to announce the latest addition in the Group’s Verderflex range of peristaltic tube pumps, the Rapide 5000.
The Rapide 5000 has been developed to offer simple, reliable and cost-effective pumping solutions for industrial applications. The design combines the flexibility of the Vantage 5000 pump head with the simplicity of a single or three-phase powered industrial gearmotor.
Simplicity and flexibility
The innovative pump head has been field proven on many successful installations of the more sophisticated, programmable Vantage 5000 dosing pump. Verderflex’s engineers have developed the Rapide 5000 peristaltic pump for users who require a simpler pump design with no local controls, or a pump that does not need a costly, external air supply.
The new Verderflex Rapide 5000 is ideal as a stand-alone single or double head pump or integrated into a system. This lubricant-free peristaltic pump can run dry without pump damage as, with the tube’s powerful recovery, it has excellent dry priming and viscous product pumping capabilities. The pump is especially suitable to dose and transfer abrasive and corrosive liquids such as chemical additives, inks, paints and off gassing liquids.
Like all peristaltic pumps, the Rapide 5000’s gentle, low-shear working principle produces less foaming than other pump technologies improving delivered product quality and lowering reject rates. Additionally, the pump head has a higher flow per revolution than other comparable peristaltic pumps and with less tube compressions for a given pumped liquid volume produces a longer tube life.
Tradition of excellence
As a family owned and run business, the Verder Group has a longstanding history of focus on innovation and technology. Its growth is centred on strategic acquisitions of like-minded pump equipment manufacturers who’s philosophy and products are in keeping with this focus and the Group’s core values – as well as ongoing investment in its own research and development (R&D) as the Group continues its tradition of technical excellence.
“The Verder promise is to find innovative solutions to existing problems as well as to anticipate the problems and needs of the future – and the Group achieves this by delivering on high quality solutions that are fit-for-purpose. We are very excited by this new product and the application capability it will deliver for our clients across Africa,” said Darryl Macdougall, Managing Director, Verder Pumps South Africa.
