Peristaltic Pumps Get a Positive Reaction

Apr 30 2007

A niche supplier of laboratory equipment requiring a robust pump for their popular Controlled Laboratory Reactor (CLR), have opted for peristaltic pump technology from Watson-Marlow Bredel, largely due to its ease of integration and low maintenance.

Radleys developed the LaraTM Controlled Laboratory Reactor to address the desire that many laboratories have for affordable, yet highly automated and versatile CLRs. Drawing upon Radleys' 40 years experience in designing, manufacturing and installing bespoke manual reaction systems, LaraTM was developed to make the benefits of process control and automation much more affordable and accessible to a wider process chemistry market.

"Originally we offered the LaraTM system with only a diaphragm pump," explains Radleys' International Product Specialist, Stuart Hall. "However, we have since developed the system further to accommodate peristaltic and syringe pump technology to meet the demands of our customers. To date we have over 20 LaraTM systems in the field supplied with the Watson-Marlow Bredel Pumps"

Radleys' decision to pursue peristaltic pumps led it to Watson-Marlow Bredel, where the 300 Series, which is designed specifically for scientific pumping needs, caught the company's eye.

"We wanted a peristaltic pump that had a good reputation," said Mr Hall, "and it appeared to us that the pumps offered by Watson-Marlow Bredel were an attractive choice. Their robust nature and ease of integration makes them very attractive."

The first LaraTM systems fitted with Watson-Marlow 323 Series peristaltic pumps were despatched in 2004. The success of these units has since led to the integration of higher flow 500 Series peristaltic pumps, again supplied by Watson-Marlow Bredel.
