Safety
Read these instructions carefully before operating or servicing
the equipment.
In the interests of safety, this pump and the hose selected
should only be used by competent, suitably trained personnel
after they have read and understood this manual, and considered any hazard involved.
Any person who is involved in the installation or maintenance of
this equipment should be fully competent to carry out the work.

There are dangerous voltages inside the motor


terminal box. If access is required, isolate the pump
from the electrical supply before removing the
cover. Never operate the pump without the pump
cover or shaft coupling guards in place. Do not
place any part of the body inside the pump housing
while the pump is operating. Protect hands and face
from possible aggressive product when handling or
examining used pump hoses.

Pump hose

Lubrication and cooling

The pump hose liner material should be compatible with the product to be pumped. If in doubt regarding fluid compatibility please
contact your local Watson-Marlow/Bredel representative. Hoses
are available in several materials for different applications.

The pump housing is filled with a specially compounded food


grade hose lubricant. The lubricant performs as a coolant as
well as a lubricant and Watson-Marlow/Bredel cannot accept
any responsibility for poor hose life as a result of an incorrect
hose lubricant used within the pump housing.

1 Outer layer: Natural rubber


2 Nylon reinforcing
3 Inner liner options: NR, NBR,
EPDM, NBRX, Hypalon

Since the lubricant is specially compounded, it is recommended


that it be obtained from an official Watson-Marlow/Bredel
representative.

The minimum level is indicated on the inspection window for


port positions one and two only. For positions three and four
please follow the volumes given above.
Strong oxidizing substances are deemed incompatible with
Watson-Marlow/Bredel Hose lubricant. If your product consists
of high concentration of an oxidizing substance, then please
contact your Watson-Marlow/Bredel representative for an
alternative silicone based hose lubricant.

At no stage should the lubricant come in contact


with any highly concentrated oxidizing substances
as a potential hazard could occur.

Shims
The number of shims will vary for each application.
(See Technical Information section).
The shimming guide is for use with Watson-Marlow/Bredel
original pump hoses. Watson-Marlow/Bredel hoses are constructed with four nylon reinforcement layers, each hose is
precision ground ensuring close tolerances, performance
repeatability and superior surface finish which improves hose
life. Watson-Marlow/Bredel cannot guarantee the performance
of its product with any other hose make or type.
Each pump has a number of loose shims supplied separately
within the shipping carton.

Never reduce the shimming of the pump to limit the


pressure created by the pump. Insufficient compression of the hose, creates a back stream of fluid
in the hose and damages the inner layer.
Insufficient shimming seriously reduces hose life.

Recommended installation guidelines


points to observe
For maximum hose life, the pump should be set up with the
delivery end of the hose connected to the upper port of the
pumphead.

DO keep delivery and suction lines as short and direct as possible.


DO keep the piping "oversized", at a minimum equal to or
greater than the bore size of the pump. Increase the bore size of
the pipework when the duty fluid has a high viscosity or
high inertia. This will help keep the friction losses to a minimum.
DO keep sharp bends and T sections to a minimum.
DO use Y junctions and long slow swept bends,
minimum R = 4 to 5d.

Motor insulation: Follow the guidelines issued by the motor


manufacturer. Details are given in the motor information
provided. Please note that this is separate to this manual.
Install a reversing switch to assist in cleaning and
hose exchange.
Electrical motors - A current overload relay should also be
fitted to a contact breaker. Connect the motor in accordance with the wiring diagram, which will be found in the
motor terminal box.
When a thermal protection switch is fitted in the motor, the
leads will be found in the motor terminal box. They should
be connected to stop the pump if the switch operates. See
below for the connection of the drive motor showing possible ancillary switches and protections.

DO keep the pump housing and pressing shoes clean.


DO fit a discharge pulsation damper and /or inlet pulse accumulator when the product specific gravity and pump speed is
high and the line lengths are long.

The self-priming nature of peristaltic pumps means that valves


are not required. If for whatever reason, valves are fitted in to
the system they must have a straight fluid path and cause minimum restriction to flow in the pumping circuit. If a valve is fitted
in the discharge line, ensure that a by-pass valve is fitted to
avoid premature hose rupture.

Emergency stop

Stop
Liquid level control
Spare

It is recommended that the pressure on the discharge of the


pump should not exceed 232 psi, or 109 psi for the SPX10 and
SPX15 mini pumps.

Installation commissioning the pump

Ensure that the pump hose liner material is compatible with


the product to be pumped.
Site the pump on a flat horizontal surface allowing a free
flow of air around the pump. Bolt the pump down using the
mounting points provided.
Ensure there is 5 ft to 6.5 ft of straight flexible hose before
the suction and discharge ports, of not less than the diameter of the hose bore. This will aid hose replacement without
the need to break down transfer pipework.
Check the breather on the rear of the pump is free from any
obstruction. It is recommended that the breather/vent is
piped away to a safe area if pumping hazardous products.
Before commissioning drive gearboxes, ensure that the
gearbox breather/vent plug is free from obstruction, in
order to prevent excessive pressure build up and oil leaks.
Check to ensure the gearbox has been filled with oil
or grease.
The motor should be connected by a qualified engineer,
who is fully conversant with the appropriate regulations.

All pumps, excluding those intended for use in hazardous


atmospheres, may be fitted with a Liquid Level Control (LLC).
This switch is rated 250V 1A AC maximum power load 50W.

Do not connect LLC or any other switch gear to the


terminal box of a explosion-proof motor unless the
switch has a suitable XP rating for the zone area in
which it is to be mounted.

Before operating the pump


Check all pipe and clamp connections for tightness. Ensure that
all inlet and discharge isolating valves are open, since potentially dangerous or damaging pressures could otherwise result.

Hose pumps
Hose pumps have a pulsating flow that can result in vibration of the
pump and associated pipework under the following circumstances:

suction and discharge lines are not fixed correctly.


high pump speed in combination with long suction and discharge lines or high specific gravity of the product.
diameter of suction and/or the discharge line is too small.
Severe pulsation at the inlet side of the pump indicates
poor suction conditions.
In the event that the pulsations become unacceptable, pulsation
dampers for both the suction and discharge lines are available
from Watson-Marlow/Bredel. Please contact your local WatsonMarlow/Bredel representative for details on our Inlet Pulsation
Accumulators (IPA) or Pulsation Dampers (PD).

3.

Remove the drain plug. Ensure that the breather vent mounted on the rear is not obscured. Allow lubricant to drain from
the pumphead.

4.

Disconnect the suction and delivery lines.

5.

Loosen the hose clamps on both the upper and lower ports.

If in any doubt over the correct installation of your pump contact your local Watson-Marlow/Bredel representative for
assistance. They are equipped with the latest windows based
Watson-Marlow/Bredel Hose pumps selector program and can
offer advice and recommendations on the installation layout,
running speeds, pipe diameters, etc, to give the optimum performance from your Watson-Marlow/Bredel hose pump.

Cleaning the pump hose


This can be done by running the pump with clean water. If a
cleaning fluid is added to the water, attention must be given to
its compatibility with the hose liner material, and also the temperature at which the cleaning procedure will be performed.
Sometimes a cleansing sponge can be very helpful.
With many products it is necessary to clean the pump hose
immediately once the pump is stopped, to avoid solidification
and hardening of the product within the hose.

Hose replacement
For all weight, torque adjustment and shim setting references,
please refer to the Technical information section at the rear of
this manual.

Hose removal
The pump hose should be changed without removing the
pump cover.
1.
2.

Close the isolating valves on both the inlet and discharge of


the pump to minimize fluid loss.
Place a lubricant tray of sufficient capacity to contain the
hose lubricant plus any process fluid that might be contained within the pump housing (this only applies if the hose
has failed) underneath the drain plug located at the bottom
of the pumphead.

12. It may be necessary to remove the pump cover at this


stage. (see Pump cover removal).
13. Inspect the pump chamber and the rear rotor lubricant seal
for any signs of damage or wear, replace if necessary.
14. Check the pressing shoes for signs of damage or wear.
Damaged shoes will cause insufficient hose compression
and a reduction in hose life.
15. Check the shim settings and ensure that rotor is set to give
optimum performance and hose life for the duty required.

Cover removal
6.

Ensure that the pump is completely isolated from


the electrical supply prior to opening the pump
cover. NEVER REMOVE THE PUMP COVER WHILE
THE HOSE IS IN PLACE. This can cause deformation
of the pump housing and shearing of the bolts on
start up.

Pull the inserts from the ends of the hose and remove
the flanges.

If the pump cover is to be lifted ensure that all standard


lifting practices are adhered to and carried out by qualified
personnel only.

When replacing the pump cover, make sure that the coversealing quad ring is seated correctly within its groove.
Locate the cover using the four guide bosses.
Refit the retaining bolts.
Tighten each bolt in sequence diagonally opposite to each
other to the specified torque limits.

Assembly - Hose loading


The hose sealing system is dependent on the close
tolerances and ground surface of WatsonMarlow/Bredel hoses, and no other hose type or
make should be used since sealing cannot be guaranteed. Any leakage of lubricant through the seal
caused by using a non-Watson-Marlow/Bredel
hose could lead to hose or pump failure, which
would not be covered by warranty.
During hose loading, ensure that the pump housing cover and
the inspection cover are securely in place. DO NOT LOAD HOSE
WITHOUT COVER IN PLACE.

At this stage the bolts should be finger tight only - 0.20"
(5mm) gap between the bracket and the port face.
Position the flange and insert in the end of the hose.

Clean the outside of the pump hose and heavily lubricate the
external surface of the hose with the Watson-Marlow/Bredel
hose lubricant.
7. Push the insert into the hose.
Assembly tip: Apply a small amount of hose lubricant to the lip
of the insert. This will help ease the insert into the hose.

3. Slide the sealing ring on to the hose.
If the sealing ring has been used before, inspect for
damage and replace if necessary.
4. Slide the flange bracket and the hose clamp over the
hose together.
5. Align the holes in the flange bracket with those in the port

Refit and secure the suction transfer pipework.


Jog the motor in the direction of the lower port to drive the
hose against the flange face. Ensure that the hose butts up
hard against the flange face and the insert is seated correctly. Leakage of the process fluid could occur if the insert
is not seated correctly.

Shimming
Shimming is a simple operation that can be done through the
front inspection window without removing the hose or the
pump cover.

11. Position the hose clamp against the flange bracket


and tighten.
Assemble the upper port by repeating steps 3 to 10.

At this time, pump can be run for general


mechanical function.
Do not run the pump without hose lubricant for an
excessive length of time, irreversible hose damage
can result.

Please refer to the individual pump shimming guide for the correct number of shims.

the bottom of the pumphead.
Remove the drain plug. Ensure that the breather vent mounted on the rear of the pump housing is not obscured. Partially
drain the lubricant from the pumphead - only part of the
lubricant, 20 - 30%, needs to be drained for shimming. (Just
below the lower edge of the inspection window itself.)
Loosen and remove the inspection window retaining bolts.
Remove the inspection window taking care not to damage
the gasket and sealing face.

13. Refill the housing with Watson-Marlow/Bredel hose lubricant, see Table 1 for the lubricant volume/capacity for each
pump. Remove the upper plug at the front of the pumphead
to vent pump housing. Ensure the level appears above the
minimum level indicated in the inspection window.
14. Check all pipe and clamp connections for tightness.

Never rotate or run the pump against a closed

Continuous working temperature must not exceeded 90C (195F).

Avoid mixing oils of different types even of the


same manufacture. Never mix mineral and synthetic
oils. If in doubt, change the oil completely. Pay
attention to oil and gear temperature during an oil
change, to avoid the risk of scalding.

Periodic maintenance requirements


Watson-Marlow/Bredel planetary gearbox
The planetary units do not require any specific maintenance
procedures: however it is necessary to plan periodic inspections to avoid any loss of efficiency in the unit.
Care must be given to the lubricating oil, and the oil level should
be checked regularly and topped off as necessary.
Oil changes
An oil change must be carried out after the first 100 hours of
operation and subsequently after every 2500 hours, or at least
every 12 months.
These intervals may be modified depending on the actual
operation conditions. During oil change, we recommend that the
inside of the gear case is flushed out with flushing fluid recommended by the lubricant manufacturer.
Oil should be changed when hot to prevent build up of sludge
deposit. It is advisable to check the oil level at least once a
month. If more than 10% of the total oil capacity has to be added
check for oil leaks. Fill to the center line.

Loosen and remove the hub retaining bolts.
Remove the hub taking care not to damage the sealing
O-ring on the rear. The hub is located on a dowel so a
knock with a raw hide mallet on the rear of the hub may
be necessary.
The hub is a solid casting and a heavy component, so care
must be taken on its removal.

A strap or similar lifting device must support the


weight of the hub at the removal stage.
(see section for rotor weights).
Pump head assembly
1.

Insert the hub into the pump housing ensuring the sealing
O-ring is fitted and in place.
Assembly tip - use a small quantity of silicone grease to
secure the O-ring in place.
2.

The hub locates on to a dowel for correct hub alignment,


align the dowel with the hole in the hub and push home.
3. Refit the bolts and tighten each bolt diagonally opposite to
each other to the specified torque setting.
4. Check rotor hub seal for any signs of damage and replace
if necessary.
5. Ensure the hub is clean and free from grease.
6. Refit the rotor, the bearings are a slight interference fit on
the hub and a pressing tool may be required to press the
rotor on to the hub.
Note: Ensure that the spacer ring between the two rotor bearings is aligned in the correct position as it is possible that it can
drop and foul the hub, which will prevent the rotor seating correctly on the hub. Rotor is correctly seated, when the retaining
ring groove is clearly visible on the end of the hub.

Heavily grease the drive shaft spline with a graphite-loaded
grease or a similar compound.
Ensure the mating faces are clean, dry and free
from lubricant.
Ensure the sealing O-ring on the rear mating face is free
from damage and seated correctly.
To refit the drive shaft it may be necessary to align the
splines with those in the gearbox.
Align the holes in the drive shaft with those within the rotor
and refit the retaining bolts.
Tighten each bolt diagonally opposite to each other to the
specified torque setting.
Check that the pump housing is clean and free from
any debris.
Refit the cover plate.

6.

Remove the rotor from the pump.


Lay on a flat surface with the wear ring face up.
Remove the bearing retaining ring - internal type.
Turn the rotor over, with the rotor-supported face up,
the bearing must be extracted in the direction of the
retaining ring groove.
Using a suitable press remove the bearings from the rotor.
Retain the spacer ring and discard the old bearings.

Support the rotor off the bench with wooden blocks at 90
degrees to the spokes, with the ring facing down 40mm
free from the bench.
Using a suitable punch or drift, in a clockwise order,
position the tool in the recesses provided and strike the
rear edge of the wear ring.

Continue in clockwise rotation until the ring is free from


the rotor.
Care must be taken not to damage the seating face of
the rotor.

Ensure the seating for the ring is clean, dry and free from
any burrs or damage.
Position the ring with the tapered edge facing up.
Cover the ring with a hard wood block.
Using a suitable press, press the ring until the rear edge
butts against the rotor, and the front edge is flush with the
end of the rotor.

Shoe removal and shim access

Drive assembly

Isolate the pump from the electrical supply.


Support the drive using either the individual lifting points on
the gearbox and motor or by the means of suitably rated
lifting straps.
Loosen and remove the cap head bolts that secure the
gearbox to hub at the rear of the pumphead.
Withdraw the gearbox from the pumphead and lift the drive
free from the pump.
It is recommended that any servicing of the drive components other than that given in the user manual is carried
out by the manufacture and should not be attempted by
the customer.

Heavily grease the drive shaft spline protruding from the


pump with a graphite-loaded grease or similar compound.
Lift the drive into position align the spline of the drive shaft
with the female spline of the gearbox and slide the gearbox
into position.
Align the gearbox holes with those in the pump housing,
ensuring that the gearbox breather, drain and filler plugs
are in their correct positions. Consideration should also be
given to the position of motor terminal box.
Refit the cap head bolts and tighten each bolt diagonally
opposite to each other to the specified torque setting (ISO
grade 10.9 or higher).
Check the gearbox lubricant level and top off if necessary.
Ensure that the gearbox breather is free from any
obstruction.
Reconnect the electrical supply, a qualified engineer, who
is fully conversant with the appropriate regulations, should
carry out this task.

When fluid temperature is in excess of 140F (60C), reduce the


number of shims indicated on the charts by one.
When the maximum suction capacity is required, the pump
shimming must be set for a minimum 72.5 psi (5 bar) counter
pressure at corresponding speed.
