Peristaltic Pumps Successfully Handle Fluids with Particulates or Chemicals that Off-Gas

June 6, 2023
Peristaltic metering pumps excel at pumping fluids containing particulate matter into low pressure systems, they have no check valves to clog, and gentle forces created during peristaltic pumping action won't damage delicate fluids within the tube.

Peristaltic pumps are also extremely effective when pumping fluids that contain trapped gases. Fluids such as chlorine and peracetic acid tend to release absorbed or occluded gases when subjected to a vacuum or changes in temperatures. Whereas a diaphragm pump will most often lose prime or vapor lock and fail when gases build up in the pump head, peristaltic pumps are capable of pumping both fluid with particulates and those that off-gas without loss of prime or vapor lock.
