A peristaltic pump or hose pump is a type of positive displacement pump used in various industrial applications for pumping variety of fluids. The fluid is contained within a flexible tube (i.e Hose) fitted inside the pump casing having no contact with any other part of the industrial hose pump. A rotor having rollers attached to the external circumference compresses the flexible tube in the peristaltic pump. As the rotor revolves, compression motion forces the fluid to move through the tube.
Additionally, the tube’s restitution after squeezing produces a vacuum that draws fluid continuously into the tube. This process is called peristalsis and is used in many applications such as the highly viscous & abrasive fluids. Suited for heavy duty applications such as waste-water slurry, mining operations, ceramic industries, etc.
