Five great reasons why you should consider using peristaltic pumps in abrasive or highly viscous applications.
What is a Peristaltic Pump?
A peristaltic pump is a type of positive displacement pump. The fluid is contained in a tube inside the circular pump casing, pushed by rotors which squeeze the hose flat. In front of the roller, pressure builds up and because of the hose’s elasticity a vacuum builds up behind the roller. The pressure pushes the fluid out of the hose and the vacuum sucks the new fluid in.
The advantages of using a peristaltic pump include low maintenance costs, no contamination and the ability to handle a wide variety of fluids.
Industries and Applications
The pumps are used in a wide range of applications and industries such as food, mining, chemical, fishing and agriculture as well as on and off shore, in anaerobic digestion / biogas and in the production of concrete and paint.
