Low cost tube pump ideal for low- to medium-viscosity fluids

May 4, 2009
The tube pumps are ideally-suited for liquids of low- to medium-viscosity. Chemically-resistant tubing materials and new peristaltic pump head technology combine to meet the demands for reliable, long-term pump operation. Four stainless steel rollers minimize pulsation and promote longer tube life. The tube set-up, changes and replacements are quick and easy. Tubing inside diameters offered are 1/8”, 3/16”, 3/4”, or 5/16 ”, each with a 1/16” wall thickness. The size and material of the tubing chosen, as well as the selected fixed RPMs of the motor drive, determine the flow rate. Pumped fluid never touches the pump. This economical model delivers smooth, precise operation and virtually eliminates maintenance problems. Pump design features include: self-priming; compact, small footprint design; mountable in any direction; 115V or 230V service; fixed RPM AC gear motors. Industry-specific applications include: Science and research, OEM, Processing, Engineering, Agriculture, Analytical Chemistry experiments, Pharmaceutical production, Sewage sludge, Paint and pigments, Pulp and paper, Food manufacturing, Beverage dispensing, and Carbon monoxide monitors.
