Hoses & Tubes for Peristaltic Pumps
Hoses and tubes have become a crucial component in various industrial applications, including peristaltic pumps. Peristaltic pumps are positive displacement pumps that operate using a mechanism of squeezing and releasing of the fluid contained within the tube or hose. It is a common type of pump used in various industries, including food and beverage, pharmaceutical, and chemical industries. Hoses and tubes used in peristaltic pumps are made from materials that can withstand the repeated squeezing and releasing motion that is required for the pump to work efficiently. These materials must also be resistant to abrasion, chemicals, and elevated temperatures. The proper selection of the hose or tube can impact the performance and the lifespan of the peristaltic pump, making it an essential consideration for optimal pump operation. This preamble will explore the key factors that influence the selection of hose and tubing materials for peristaltic pumps, including material considerations, performance criteria, and application-specific requirements.
