Peristaltic pumps are also known as hose pumps, tube pumps or roller pumps. They provide a reliable and simple solution for moving almost any fluid in a wide variety of markets and applications.
Peristaltic hose pumps can transfer, dose or meter a range of fluids, including cosmetic lotions, abrasive slurry or sodium hypochlorite.
Peristaltic pumps offer a flexible solution for chemical processing, wastewater applications, food & beverage and more. When paired with variable speed drives or a PLC, pump flow can be adjusted to accurately meter or dose fluids.
At the core of the pump is an elastomeric hose or tube that contains the fluid, virtually eliminating the possibility of product contamination. Albin Pump manufactures a variety of durable tube or hose materials to meet the chemical compatibility required for each application.
The pump hose is compressed successively by two pressing shoes assembled on a rotating wheel. The first shoe, by pressing the walls of the hose, will create a vacuum and attract the pumped liquid into the hose.
Once the pumped liquid has entered the hose, the second roller passes over the hose and pushes the liquid toward the pump outlet.
When the shoe at the discharge side is detached from the hose, the opposing shoe is already in compression, thus preventing any backflow. The pumped fluid is then successfully pulled in and pushed out due to the wheel rotation.
