Thickening in waste water treatment

Bredel hose pumps are proven to reduce operating costs when used with mechanical  thickening systems. DAF sludge has high air entrained which may cause a progressive cavity pump rotor and stator to overheat. Bredel hose pumps can capably handle this high air entrained sludge without deformation to the hose or pump. Whether it be a gravity, flotation or  DAF (dissolved air filtration) system Bredel pumps are virtually maintenance free with no expensive seals to replace, no check valves to clog, and no rotors and stators to wear out.
