Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group

Positive displacement pumps for chemical industry - Chemical & Pharmaceuticals

Watson-Marlow offers a wide range of tube materials to ensure chemical compatibility with your pumped fluid. Reliability and long life will yield production benefits and reduce maintenance costs year after year.

The chemical industry places high demands on pumping equipment. Any interruption in production or accidental spillage of fluid can be costly and cause serious health and safety risks. Watson-Marlow peristaltic pumps ensure safety, reliability and performance through:

  • Total fluid containment with no seals
  • Accuracy and repeatability of flows
  • Extended pump life and reduced maintenance
  • Continuous dry-running and self-priming capability

Our positive displacement pumps are designed to handle difficult, abrasive, corrosive and gaseous fluids. The only part to come into contact with the product is the tube or hose. This means there are no seals or valves that can wear or fail. Replacing the tube or hose can be performed quickly and safely.

Continuous dry running and self-priming eliminates the risk of gas locking or blockage. Precise metering of flow rates from microlitres per minute to 80 cubic metres per hour, with consistent accuracy of up to ± 0.5% ensures economical use of expensive chemicals and optimised system performance.
