The chemical industry has some of the most demanding pumping requirements there are. This industry routinely has to pump aggressive and corrosive fluids that include slurries, suspended solids, and abrasive materials. Peristaltic hose pumps have no seals or stuffing boxes that present challenges and added costs. Because the reinforced hose inner liner is the only component in contact with the pumped fluid, an Albin peristaltic hose pump offers the lowest life cycle cost compared to other pump technologies. Albin peristaltic hose pumps can handle slurries, suspended solids and abrasive materials without upset and with no adverse effect on metering performance.
