Peristaltic Pumps from Watson-Marlow Overcome Vapor Locking Problems
Posted on by Sara Springer
Sodium Hypochlorite is a highly corrosive and toxic chemical used for water treatment because of it’s disinfecting properties. One of the tendencies of Sodium Hypochlorite is to off gas, or release tiny bubbles. This causes gas locking in the small ball valves found in Diaphragm Metering Pumps, the most common pumps used for dosing this chemical.
Watson-Marlow 500, 600 and 700 Series Cased Drive and Qdos Peristaltic Pumps are impervious to vapor locking, which means less maintenance time when pumping Sodium Hypochlorite.
