Peristaltic pumps

Characteristics of the peristaltic pumps manufactured for Flowtec

The FMP50 peristaltic pump has a roller design in place of the pressure shoe. The design of the roller does not require lubricant, it imparts less tension in the hose, which reduces the useful life of the hose. Therefore, operating costs are much lower compared to other technologies and other peristaltic pumps. That was one of the main reasons why the client selected our peristaltic pump: the operating cost is very low.

The hose leak detector is located at the lowest point of the pump, allowing it to shut off immediately after the hose breaks, which provides containment and prevents the housing from filling up with the product. This peristaltic pump is applied over a corrosive slurry and is supplied with the optional Halar coating (ECTFE), which is widely used in a wide variety of chemical processing applications.
