All About Verderflex Pumps

As we have mentioned on many occasions, we import the finest pumps from around the world to ensure that your operation always goes smoothly and efficiently with minimal downtime if any. We know that downtime can cost thousands of dollars for many operations. One of the most dependable brands of pumps we carry is Verderflex.

Verderflex pumps are manufactured by the Verder Group. The Verder Group was established in the Netherlands in 1959 by Andre Verder. They would eventually move to Belgium, followed by moves to Germany, France, Austria and the UK. Demand for their products rose, not only in Europe, but in the US, Japan, China, India, South Africa and Australia as well.

Today, Verderflex is known as the world’s foremost producer of peristaltic pumps. The brand name for Verderflex pumps comes from the fact that the tube in a peristaltic pump is flexed in a peristaltic manner to move fluid.

Applications for Verderflex Pumps

All About Verderflex Pumps

Verderflex pumps are most often used for sterile applications, precise applications such as chemical dosing or large scale operations where aggressive chemicals or slurries with a high solid content need to be transported.

Their smaller pumps are used in beverage, printing, medical, pharmaceutical and even packaging. Larger tube or hose pumps are used in the wastewater, mining and water industries.

Advantages of Verderflex Peristaltic Pumps

As we explained in another blog post this month, peristaltic pumps work by squeezing a tube to mimic the human and animal process called peristalsis. The moving parts of the pump are on the outside and the fluid to be moved is inside of the tube. This means the material of the tube can be adjusted to handle abrasive or aggressive chemicals.

It also means that the fluid only touches the inside of the tube. That makes it easier to keep the tube clean and guarantees that nothing will contaminate the contents inside. It also keeps the fluids from affecting the moving parts, the rotors and rollers, in any way.

Verderflex Pumps: Powering Many Industries

Verderflex pumps are manufactured by Verder, a company located in Germany. They make the best peristaltic pumps in the world. Peristaltic pumps are known as “hose pumps” or “tube pumps” because they consist of a motor that squeezes a hose or tube in an action that mimics the bowel mechanism called peristalsis.

You can do this yourself to a water hose that has sat in your yard and has water collected in it. Simply grab the hose at one end and squeeze it until your finger and thumb have made it half as thick as the rest of the hose. Then, move your finger and thumb down the hose. This forces water out the other end.

Peristaltic pumps are superior for abrasive fluids with a high solid content. For metering, they are superior in printing applications and clean, aggressive chemicals under high pressure. Here are a few specific applications in different industries.

Verderflex pumps are often found in water and wastewater operations because of their ability to handle aggressive or abrasive fluids and solids.

They are great for the mining industry because of their ability to handle slurries. They are also used for froth floatation systems.

Verderflex Pumps: Powering Many Industries

Because Verderflex pumps offer accurate dosing, they are popular in the pharmaceutical and chemical industries, as well as the printing industry.

Their dosing capability makes them a popular choice for laboratories around the world.

Verderflex pumps are also used for many original equipment manufacture (OEM) applications, such as printing presses, vending machines, chemical dosing systems and dishwashers.

The design of a peristaltic pump ensures that there is no contamination of the liquids inside. That makes it a natural choice for applications in which sanitation is mandatory, such as the medical and food & beverage industries.
