The L-Series peristaltic pumps are happy pumping a wide variety of chemicals all day long. This includes sticky highly viscous products that need transferring to sheer sensitive products that need to be handled delicately and everything in-between.
Peristaltic Pump Advantages:
Wear as a result of abrasion from hard solids or chemical attack is mitigated as a result of everything being self-contained within the hose element which is an issue with most pump types especially where rotating elements come directly into contact with the product.
Flow rate drop off as a result of fluctuating viscosity levels is a minor concern compared to other pump technologies such as AODD pumps (Air Operated Diagram) or centrifugals as capacity and efficiency will remain constant.
Suction lift of around 9 metres.
Can run dry.
Comparatively much lower maintenance compared to other pumps types (just a change of hose and lubricant)
