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 a pandemic cannot halt the company’s commitment to excellence and innovation.
Verder is proud to announce the latest expansion of its pump range with the innovative iDura, showcased at the recent Electra Mining Connect Week. The new iDura range offers the convenience of plug-and-play, ready-to-use features of the existing Verderflex Dura hose pumps (ranges 5 to 35) —complete with a fully wired single- or three-phase Verder IP66 inverter and integral hose burst sensor.
“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 Verder Pumps South Africa MD Darryl Macdougall.
Verderflex pumps are manufactured in the European Union in ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 18001 accredited facilities. The positive displacement pumps are used for a large variety of fluids, with the liquid totally contained within a flexible hose or tube fitted inside the pump casing. This means that the hose or tube is the pump’s only consumable part, making the Verderflex range of pumps the ideal solution for “difficult to pump” liquids or demanding applications, such as pumping dense, solid-laden, mining thickener slurries and highly abrasive, viscous or corrosive liquids.
Building on the innovative technology that underpins Verderflex pumps, the iDura dramatically simplifies on-site installations to four easy steps:
Plumb the pump into the existing piping
Connect it to the power supply
Program the set flow using the inverter’s potentiometer
Pump the desired liquid
Every iDura has built-in flow rate flexibility— with each unit pre-programmed to a standardised or normal flow rate, this can be easily changed using the inverter’s potentiometer to increase or decrease the flow rate. The flow rate is clearly visible on the electronic display, to accommodate production variations. In addition, the pre-wired, integral hose burst sensor, used for detection and protection, is visible on the same electronic display to show when it has automatically stopped the pump, eliminating additional controls and wiring.
“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 long-term operational and cost efficiency benefits. And this has certainly been achieved with the iDura range,” concludes Macdougall.
