UK brickmaker Ibstock Brick has, over the course of the past five years, replaced its existing peristaltic pumps with alternative Bredel SPX models supplied by Watson-Marlow Pumps.

The Bredel SPX50 high-pressure hose pump was linked with PLC control and HMI output to pump mains water into a mixing process, ensuring a constant volume and constant flow.

The company has since installed smaller Bredel SPX models for pumping water-based paint into the mixture, which alters brick colour.
