Peristaltic pumps, also known as tubing pumps, are a type of positive displacement pump. A Tubing pump can pump a variety of fluids and is a critical and reliable part of processes ranging from chemical transfer to pharmaceutical processing to wastewater treatment.
The peristaltic pump features a unique design – a drive system turns a set of rollers which compress and release flexible tubing as they rotate. This squeezing action creates a vacuum that draws fluid through the tubing. The flexible tubing is the only wetted part offering multiple advantages.
Why choose a peristaltic pump?
- Fluid contacts only the flexible tubing, creating a contamination-free pump system that is easy to clean and maintain.
- Peristaltic pumps are self-priming and non-siphoning, and handle peristaltic and high viscosities.
- Gentle, low-shear pumping action makes a tubing pump ideal for handling live cells, large proteins, suspensions, and other shear-sensitive fluids.
