The new 530 peristaltic cased pump (photo) handles metering and transfer applications, such as surface coating, printing and lime addition. The cost-effective pump is said to offer easier operation and greater versatility coupled with high levels of accuracy. The new 530 models meet the demands of rugged and often remote environments, and are built to operate 24/7 without interruption. The versatile 530 range of process pumps offers four drive options and nine pumphead variants. The pumps deliver flowrates from 0.000026 to 0.92 gal/min. The pumps can be fitted with either continuous tubing pumpheads, or with LoadSure tube element pumpheads for pressures up to 101.5 psi. — Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group, Falmouth, U.K.
