What kind of tubing is used for peristaltic pump?

The most common tubing’s that we sell for peristaltic pump applications are the following; Tygon® LFL, Tygon® Ultra soft R-1000, Tygon® laboratory tubing R-3603, Tygon® F-4040-A, Fluran® F-5500-A, Tygoprene® XL-60, Tygon® high purity 2001, Norprene® A-60-G, Norprene® A-60-F, Tygon® B-44-3, Tygon® 3350, Tygon® 3355-L …

What is peristaltic tubing?

Peristaltic-pump tubing transports many kinds of fluids, such as corrosive detergents and various chemicals used in laundry, dishwasher, floor scrubber and other applications. The pump moves these fluids by squeezing or pinching the tube between a roller and the pump housing.

How do I choose a peristaltic pump tubing?

Peristaltic pumps require specific tubing sizes-determined by the inside diameter (ID), the outside diameter (OD), and the wall thickness-to operate correctly. Using the wrong size in a pump can lead to improper function of the retaining mechanism, no pumping action, and even premature failure of the tubing.

How long can pump run dry?

If the pump is run dry for less than 45-60 seconds, the pump should not suffer damage. Anytime you are aware that the pump may have to be run dry to empty the tank, the operator must take care to ensure the pump is run dry for the absolute minimum amount of time.

What is peristaltic micropump?

Peristalsis. Peristaltic pumps are a type of positive displacement pump used for pumping a variety of fluids. The fluid is contained within a flexible hose or tube fitted inside the pump casing.

What is the working principle of peristaltic pump?

The working principle of a peristaltic pump is based on moving a product through a hose, by compressing and decompressing. The ‘shoes’ of the pump are fixed onto the rotor of the pump, which press the fluid through the pump. The working principle is similar to how our body pumps blood, nutrition and oxygyn.

What is peristaltic pump tubing?

Peristaltic pump tubing is made of extremely flexible rubber (natural rubber, NBR, CSM, EPDM, silicone and other), resistant to compression, friction and with an adequate level of chemical resistance. They may be textile-reinforced. Peristaltic tubing application (examples):

What is the best material for a peristaltic pump?

It is an good choice for long term peristaltic pump applications because it offers excellent flex fatigue and good tear resistance. Grayline MD65-TPE is a clear flexible tubing made from a high purity grade TPE compound.

What are the characteristics of peristaltic tubing?

The tubing is soft, pliable, and contains no plasticizers which could leach out, causing flow contamination. It is odorless, tasteless, inert and is ideal for use in both continuous and intermittent peristaltic pump applications.

What is the hardness of peristaltic pump tubing?

Peristaltic pump tubing is generally between 50 – 65 Shore A hardness and often sold with very tight tolerances on the ID and wall thickness. Since the tubing is the only surface that the fluid is exposed to, the chemical compatibility chart included with this report provides a good way to narrow down the material options.
