Watson Marlow Breaking Ground for North American Facility

Posted on by Andrew Springer


Thanks to a growing customer base, big improvements are being implemented by Watson Marlow this year, including breaking ground for multiple new manufacturing facilities. One of these sites is located in Devens Massachusetts, bringing production to a whole new level in North America.

Watson Marlow’s 25-acre plant site is massive and allows the manufacturer room for future expansion. The custom facility has over 150,000 square feet allotted for production. This site is one of three new locations Watson Marlow is developing, investing heavily in the company’s future. Other sites are being erected in the UK, one in Yorkshire and in Portsmouth.

The North American site will focus on the production of peristaltic pumps, Qdos pumps, pump heads 300/313 series OEM pump heads, high purity tubing, and BioPure fluid path components and assemblies.

When the new Massachusetts facility is completed, it will house multiple clean rooms, a warehouse area as well as offices. The location allows areas to be designated for specific uses so Watson Marlow can continue to provide the same superior quality to the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, medical, and processing industries without cross-contamination. There is additional square footage set aside for expansion as the company grows.

By Mimicking their European facilities with a U.S.-based site, Watson Marlow has streamlined the supply chain for its North American customers. The manufacturer can now also ensure product continuity domestically. This also means quicker delivery time for American-based clients.

Watson Marlow anticipates no disruption of its European sites as the company expands through 2022.

This provides customers with access to fast, accurate performance data and seamless connectivity, with modern PLC control systems and the Internet of Things.

  • EtherNet/IP™ Connectivity for fast and easy access to pump data over Industrial Ethernet
  • Improve process control and reduce operating costs using enhanced network control
  • Gateway connectivity for pressure and flow sensors
  • Fully compatible with distributed control systems and PLC’s: Rockwell Automation(with AOP); Emerson (Delta-V); Schneider
  • No need for adapters or gateways; saving you money and space
  • Superior flow stability up to 33 L/min

SENSOR CONNECTIVITY

The pumps also include a direct interface to third party pressure and flow sensors. This provides network access to the sensor data. Operators can set local limits on pump operation. This useful feature offers a simple, cost-effective solution for safeguarding process integrity by independently monitoring fluid delivery performance.

Bredel CIP 40 & CIP 50 Clean-In-Place Peristaltic Pump with Retractable Shoes From Watson-Marlow Bredel

Posted on by R Andrew Springer

The CIP 40 and CIP 50 are the First Hose Pumps to Feature Air, Electric or Manual Retractable Shoes Which Allow True Clean-In-Place Operation for Sanitary Processes

The Shoes in a Hose Pump are what compress the hose and move the fluid through it.  When the Shoes are compressing the hose it is impossible to CIP the Hose Element.  But with the CIP 40 and CIP 50 CIP Hose Pumps the Shoes can be retracted automatically, allowing the steam or cleaning fluid to travel through the entire hose.

Other hose pumps require that the shoes be retracted by a tedious process which usually requires removing the front cover.  This is time consuming, messy and adds a complicated step which keeps hose pumps out of processes that require CIP/High Sanitation.
