BUMBLEance ensures that the journey of a sick child who needs ambulance transportation to and from a treatment centre and their home is the most safe and comfortable journey possible.

Its outstanding gentle pumping principle allows users to handle delicate products such as cheese curds, without degradation.

Peristaltic pumps for food and beverage applications include rugged Bredel hose pumps with flow rates to 108 cubic metres/hour. They can pump viscous and abrasive slurries, pastes and sludge, with up to 80% solids in suspension. Accurate metering and dosing of colours, flavours and additives is easily achieved by a number of pumps and tubing materials in the Watson-Marlow range.
