Verder Liquids is offering the Ds500 metering and dosing pump which has been designed specifically to challenge traditional technological solutions to chemical dosing in municipal and industrial pumping applications.

The principle behind this technology is to improve the accuracy and save the end user money by looking at Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), which equals upfront costs and lifetime operation. For the end user it is not just buying the pump but the working life and all it entails, ie, service, tool-free maintenance and chemical usage.  

‘Click and go’ 

A key advantage of the Ds500 is that it has an easy ‘click and go’ cartridge change. The main wearing component, the peristaltic cartridge, can be changed in one minute giving minimal maintenance time and spare part components. In combination with Remote Assistant (RA) IoT Monitoring, it adds real value.  

The Remote Assistant supports monitoring but does not allow control of the pump. It ensures accuracy in the process and alerts to any problems. Changes are predicted, so maintenance can be scheduled. Performance is recorded and feedback provided. As a result, downtime is managed and minimised. 

No complicated pipework

The Ds500 can deliver up to +/- 1% accuracy with a smoothed flow (ie, reduced pulsation due to the design). Furthermore, this pump has an accurate flow performance from 0.1 up to 500ml/min and pressures of up to 7 bar. This means greater accuracy and smoothed flow. It wastes less chemicals and saves on the life operation costs, supported with a 5000:1 turndown. 

The unit by nature of being a peristaltic pump can handle solids, abrasives, slurries, crystals and is not affected by ‘off gassing’ such as sodium hypochlorite in the potable water industry. The Ds500 will give a reliable working life. It does so without the need for additional valves or complicated pipework required by other systems, and therefore has lower installation costs.

  1. Good morning,
    I am working for Umgeni Water as Maintenance Engineer in King Cetshwayo District is Blandly, Eshowe, Melmoth and Richards Bay Municipalities.
    I need to talk to your Sales Engineer to find out the actual cost benefits i may get if i was to replace the Grundfos dosing pump i am currently using in some of the Water Works.
    So he or she will has to visit one of my plants and sell me your Ds500 product/s
