Peristaltic Pumps

Peristaltic Pumps are self priming positive displacement pumps used for pumping various fluids.

The fluid to be pumped is contained within a flexible tube which is located inside a circular pump housing. A rotor fitted with shoes (wipers or rollers) compresses the tube and forces the fluid to flow through the tube. As the tube re-opens after being compressed, it creates suction and draws more fluid into the hose.

Peristaltic pumps are sometimes known as Roller Pumps, Hose Pumps or Tube Pumps.

Peristaltic Pump Advantages

  • Excellent for pumping solids
  • High suction lift capabilities - self priming
