Twin Screw Pumps
Peristaltic Pumps, commonly also known as tubing pumps or roller pumps, are classified as positive displacement pumps and are one of the most versatile pumps on the market today. These pumps are self-priming up to 9.8 meters, with outlet pressures of up to 15 Bar!
Our range of Peristaltic Pumps are suited to both low and high-pressure transfer, metering and dosing applications of low and high viscous, pure, neutral, aggressive or abrasive liquids, and those containing gases or solids within the Food & Beverage, Pharmaceutical, Cosmetic, Wastewater Treatment and Chemical industries to name a few.
This pump features a hose that is the only component within the pump that makes contact with the fluid. The hose is chosen based on the application to ensure the construction material suits the process fluid. The Peristaltic Pump is sealless in design and is one of the reasons they are so reliable.
In terms of the working principle, a Peristaltic Pump works by either two shoes (suited to high pressure applications) or rollers (suited to low pressure applications) rotating on a wheel inside of the pump and compressing an internal hose, which then forces through a specified quantity of fluid. The hose inside of a Peristaltic Pump is designed to return to its original shape after the shows or rollers have passed over, so the quantity and flow of fluid are consistently maintained. A Peristaltic Pump uses the same principle as that of peristalsis, and so when the pump is in operation, it allows a variety of media to enter the pump and effectively be passed through to the suction side of the pump, allowing more fluid to continue to enter from the pump casing.
