The Albin Pump ALX Series peristaltic pump provides two additional benefits from standard hose pumps: a lower speed to achieve a given flow rate and rotating rollers for soft hose compression. These two features greatly increase hose life and reduce power consumption.
After years of development, the ALX150 hose pump was introduced for applications ranging from sea tanker overloading to transferring high-solids thickener underflow slurry, where fast and reliable offloading is key to process profitability.
Our pump uses soft action rotating rollers to compress the hose instead of hard fixed shoes that are standard on other industrial hose pumps. The advantage of our rollers is the gentle compression of the hose, losing very little power from surface friction. The soft rollers reduce power consumption dramatically which contributes to longer-life. The pump can be ran at lower speeds and still deliver up to 150 m3/h (660.4 GPM) with excellent hose life due to 83.33 liters per revolution.
Typical applications for the ALX pump include:
|Capacity||up to 150 m3/h||up to 660.4 GPM|
|Viscosity||up to 12,000 cps*||up to 12,000 cps*|
|Temperature of pumped liquid||up to 60℃**||up to 140℉**|
|Differential pressure||up to 7.5 bar***||up to 110 PSI***|
|Discharge pressure||up to 7.5 bar||up to 110 PSI|
|Achievable suction||up to 0.6 bar*||up to 8.7 PSI*|
* Varies depending on the pump dimension/execution, as well as on the speed and on the tube material
** At a room temperature of 20℃ (68℉). Furthermore, it varies depending on the pumped fluid, on the hose quality and on the motor construction.
