Watson-Marlow Bredel's 720 series peristaltic pumps are the perfect pumping solution for single-use or fixed bioprocessing systems. Featuring a smaller footprint than other pumps with a similar flow rate, 720 pumps provide low shear pumping up to 4,000 litre/hour and use sanitary LoadSure pumping elements for one minute maintenance.

Unlike lobe pumps, cleaning validation is not necessary as the disposable tube is the only thing to touch the fluid. This ensures no contamination of the fluid by the pump is possible.

Watson-Marlow Bredel's LoadSure pumping elements ensure long tube life and fast, accurate tube loading. Sanitary elements are USP Class VI validated and are individually laser-etched with lot numbers for CGMP record keeping.

LoadSure provides one-minute-maintenance as only the pumping element needs changing, a job which takes less than one minute and no specialist skills. Additionally, if a joint-free fluid passage from source to delivery is required, continuous tubing models are available.

The 720 provides robustness and reliability for accurate filling, bag mixing, filtration feed and live cell transfer. Corrosion resistant IP66 casework resists the harshest cleaning regimes and the 36% more efficient brushless DC motor gives the reliability to offer a five years warranty.

All process control needs are catered for from manual keypad, through industrial I/O and analogue to full RS485 network - all compatible with PLC control.
