The Verder Group, a global leader in industrial pump solutions, has further fortified its dosing pumps range through a strategic acquisition of a majority stake in ITC, a prominent Spanish company renowned for its expertise in developing and manufacturing dosing pumps for agricultural and water treatment applications. This acquisition further strengthens Verder’s dosing pump pillar and its ability to support crucial water treatment facilities in Africa.

“Wastewater management stands as a critical challenge globally, encompassing various sources such as household drainage, industrial effluent, stormwater, and agricultural runoff. Despite the potential for recycling and treatment, a significant portion of wastewater is discharged into the environment without proper remediation. This poses severe risks to freshwater sources, exacerbating contamination and jeopardising the availability of safe drinking water,” says Darryl Macdougall, Managing Director, Verder Pumps South Africa.

Various appplications

Verder’s dosing pump solutions are comprehensive, encompassing an array of solutions tailored to meet diverse dosing requirements which are further bolstered by the Microdos and ITC ranges. From electromagnetic solenoid-powered diaphragm pumps to peristaltic pumps and motor-driven piston and diaphragm pumps, the portfolio encompasses a versatile suite of products designed to deliver precise and controlled chemical dosing across various applications.

These pumps are indispensable in industries such as municipal water treatment for wastewater and drinking water, industrial wastewater management, chemical manufacturing, laboratory research, the food industry, landscaping, and agriculture where accurate dosing is imperative for operational efficiency and safety.

Hose pumps

“Hose pumps, a fundamental component of our dosing pump range, offer a simple yet effective pumping mechanism ideal for wastewater treatment applications. By employing a re-enforced rubber hose subjected to compression and relaxation cycles, hose pumps ensure the contained medium, such as lime or flocculant, remains isolated from the pump’s moving parts. This design minimises downtime and maintenance costs associated with traditional pump types, offering a cost-effective and reliable solution for dosing applications,” Darryl explains.

“Moreover, hose pumps boast advantages such as compact size, energy efficiency, continuous operation, and reduced risk of leakages, contributing to enhanced operational efficiencies and environmental sustainability,” he concludes.
