ALP Peristaltic Pump design and principle
The ALP is the low-pressure option within our Peristaltic Pump range, it has been designed for low flow batching and metering applications that require an accurate control.
Low-pressure Peristaltic Pumps have been designed with a roller system that achieves pressures up to 4 Bar. The simplicity and robust principle associated with our range of Peristaltic Pumps is enhanced with the ALP series, to provide the end user with a reliable, accurate and lubricant free unit, perfectly suited for lower flow and pressure metering applications.
- - Able to handle high viscosity fluids
- - Gently handles fluids to avoid frothing when pumped
- - Continuous dry running
- - Low cost of ownership
- - Low operating noise
The ALP Peristaltic Pump is also available with a high-density polypropylene (HDPE) casing, this ensures that the pump is chemically resistant against most aggressive chemicals compared to the standard aluminium casing which is coated with Anti-Corrosive Polyurethane Acry-Epoxy Paint. Highly corrosive products can cause corrosion to the paint if the hose ruptures which can in turn cause damage to the pump. This had led Albin Pump to develop the COR-TUFF range for aggressive chemicals. This range of Peristaltic Pump also features rollers coated with high phosphorus electro-less nickel which provides added resistance to the pump for extremely corrosive products. Currently the COR-TUFF is available in 3 different sizes, speak to a member of the team today for more information.
Capability of the ALP Peristaltic Pump
|Capacity||Up to 10 m³/hr|

Construction – ALP Series
In sizes PTL 09–25, the rotor is supported by oversized ball bearings located within the pump casing; in sizes PTL 30–45 the rotor is supported by the heavy-duty bearings of the flanged drive unit.
Pump Casing & Rotor are manufactured from Aluminium Alloy.
Pressure Rollers are manufactured from either Plastic or Light Alloy, depending on the pump size.
Optional Executions & Extras
- Twin headed – 2 pump heads fixed to the same gear box.
- Various connection options such as SMS, Clamp, DIN, ANSI, coupling and cover.
- Hose rupture detector and revolution counter with digital display or pulsed output
- ATEX II & I certification
- Variable Speed with mechanical or electronic speed variator or variable speed drive with forced ventilation (1 – 100 Hz) or without (15 – 100 Hz)
- Trolley mounted.
