Finally, a hose pump to handle tough hydrocarbons!

Petrochemicals, hydrocarbons, and oil based products were all beyond the reach of peristaltic pumps due to incompatibility with the rubber hose – UNTIL NOW!

As the world leader in hose pump technology, the research and development team at Watson-Marlow Bredel is constantly investigating and testing a wide range of rubber and thermoplastic hose materials to broaden our range of applications. We’ve identified a revolutionary new TPE (thermoplastic elastomer) that matches oil resistance with the dynamic properties needed for long life in a hose pump. Designed around this material, the PetroProof pump was born and is the first peristaltic hose pump in the world capable of handling hydrocarbon liquids in continuous duty applications.

Common applications include:

  • Toluene as solvents in the production of a myriad of materials such as gaskets or like material, aerosol spray paints, wall paints, lacquers, paint strippers, adhesives, printing ink, spot removers, cosmetics, perfumes, and antifreeze.
  • Paints, lacquers and adhesives are commonly pumped in many markets including printing, pulp & paper, packaging, construction, manufacturing and automotive - all markets that need low flow metering!
  • The ability to handle oil, polymers, fats, fuel oils and cleaning chemicals means this pump is perfect for applications in industrial wastewater as well.
