Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., the world leader in serving
science, today announced that it has entered into an exclusive agreement with U.K.-based
Environmental Pumping Solutions Limited (EPS) in which Thermo Fisher will distribute the EPS
Enviroflex™ L Series peristaltic hose pumps and reinforced hoses in the United States and select
The EPS line expands Thermo Fisher's existing offering of more than 4,000 pumps and flowmeter
products, including the highly regarded Thermo Scientific Masterflex line of peristaltic
pumps. By carrying EPS products, Thermo Fisher will provide customers with even greater
convenience, choice and value in purchasing hose pumps and precision-ground reinforced
hoses. EPS hose pumps are easier to use and consume less power than many competing
models, enabling customers to increase their efficiency and reduce energy costs.
Eleven Enviroflex L series pump models are available, providing flow rates up to 647 GPM
(147,000 L/h) and discharge pressures up to 145 psi. The L series pumps provide self-priming
suction lift up to a maximum of 31 ft (9.5m) vertical. These high-capacity hose pumps are
available in fixed and variable speeds, with casing options including 304 and 316 stainless steel.
Enviroflex L series pumps are taller and wider than the industry standard, providing longer rollerto-
hose contact for increased flow per revolution. As a result, the pump produces the same output
as standard pumps while running at lower speeds (as much as 50 percent lower), significantly
increasing hose life and reducing maintenance costs. The Enviroflex L series pumps also feature
rotating rollers for soft hose compression, reducing operating power requirements by as much as
50 percent compared to pumps with a similar fixed-shoe design. All these innovative features
ensure the pumps have a very favorable cost of ownership.
A complete line of Enviroflex precision-ground reinforced replacement hoses, compatible with all
major peristaltic hose pump brands, is also available either with purchase of a hose pump or
separately. These EPS hoses minimize friction during pump operation to provide accuracy in flow
rates and a longer hose life. The hoses are available in sizes from 10mm to 150mm inner
diameter and in a number of different materials, including EPDM, CPSE, natural rubber,
neoprene and nitrile (food grade and industrial).
The Enviroflex L series pumps and peristaltic hose products are available to customers through
Thermo Fisher's established worldwide distribution channels. For further information and ordering
