APEX hose pumps

Overview

APEX hose pumps

The newly expanded range of APEX hose pumps is ideal for aggressive and abrasive applications up to 116 psi. With their seal-less, valve-less design, APEX pumps are engineered for a more competitive price/performance ratio vs high pressure hose pumps. Designed to suit all dosing, metering and transfer applications with unmatched flow stability from 2.8-6,200 L/h.

The APEX pump incorporates Bredel’s long proven direct-coupled technology, delivering the most reliable pump design in a compact footprint. While the APEX gearbox mounts directly to the pump housing, the APEX pump rotor is supported by its own sealed bearing hub, isolating and protecting the gearbox from integral forces.

Features and benefits

  • Seal-less, valve-less design
  • Precision machined hose elements for accurate, repeatable performance
  • Optimized hose compression for unmatched flow stability
  • The hose element is the only component to wear and can be replaced in-situ quickly and easily in minutes
  • Direct-coupled drive and maximum flexibility - no separate couplings to align or maintain
  • Ultra compact design with flexibility to mount standard gear motors - rotor supported by own bearings to maximize gearbox life
  • Lower maintenance costs - single component change means fewer spare parts inventory
