Peristaltic hose pumps are ideal for highly viscous products such as cement slurries, acids (e.g. 35% Hydrochloric) and various other industrial and mining applications. They are self priming, can run dry and have no valves.
The hose is the ONLY part in contact with the product and this comes in a variety of materials to suit the pumped product. The food grade hoses pumps are available in NBR FDA and NR FDA and meet the certifications EC 1935/2004 and FDA CFR21§177.2600. The internal of the hose is white (NR FDA ) or black (NBR FDA), according to the pumped fluid. The "CIP wheel" is now available on several models, for flows from 0.5 up to 10 m3/h and where the maximum discharge pressure can reach 15 bar.
