Verder launches “ready to use” hose pumps with iDura range Verder Liquids, part of The Verder Group, a global leader in advanced industrial and niche market pump solutions, shows that even the pandemic cannot halt the company’s commitment to excellence as it announces the latest expansion on its pump ranges with the iDura.
“The Verderflex Dura peristaltic hose pumps are already a proven first choice for mines around the world, offering unrivalled performance in even the toughest industrial processing environments. With the launch of the iDura range, Verder has brought valuable enhancements to a firm favourite in the market,” says Darryl Macdougall, Managing Director, Verder Pumps South Africa. Verderflex pumps are manufactured in the European Union within ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 18001 accredited facilities and these positive displacement pumps are used with a large variety of fluids. As the liquid is totally contained within a flexible hose or tube fitted inside the pump casing, the hose or tube is the pump’s only consumable part. This makes the Verderflex range of pumps the ideal solution for “difficult to pump” liquids or demanding applications, such as pumping dense, solids laden, mining thickener slurries and highly abrasive, viscous or corrosive liquids. Building on the innovative technology that underpins the
Verderflex pumps, the iDura dramatically simplifies on-site installations to four steps, including, plumb the pump into the existing piping, connecting it to the power supply, program the set flow using the inverter’s potentiometer, and pump the desired liquid. Every iDura has built-in flow rate flexibility as, while every unit is pre-programmed to a standardised (normal) flow rate, this can be easily changed using the inverter’s potentiometer to increase or decrease the flow rate, which is visible on the electronic display, to accommodate production variations. Additionally, the pre-wired, integral hose burst sensor (for detection and protection) uses the same electronic display to show when it has automatically stopped the pump – eliminating additional controls and wiring.
Showcased during the Electra Mining Connect Week (7-11 September), the new iDura range provides plug-and-play, “ready to use” options of the existing Verderflex Dura hose pumps (ranges 5 to 35) – complete with a fully wired-up single- or three-phase Verder IP66 inverter and integral hose burst sensor.
“The vision for the expanded range was to offer end users pumping solutions that are easy to install and use and – as the pumps are packaged for maximum flexibility these solutions bode longterm operational and cost-efficiency benefits. And this has certainly been achieved with the iDura range,” concludes Macdougall.
