are widely used in our daily life, so do you know how to choose a peristaltic pump head? I will share it with you below.
1. Flow range
Flow requirements determine the size of the pump piping and the type of pump head for a particular application.
2. Pump head material
The pump head material needs to be fire resistant and the bearings are protected by the housing to handle corrosive fluids or harsh environmental conditions. Pump heads with high-performance plastic housings offer the advantages of low weight, high fire resistance and low price.
3. Number of rollers
The flow increases when the rollers on the rotor of the specified size are reduced. But the pulsation also got bigger. When the drum is increased, the pulsation is reduced and the distribution accuracy is improved. However, if the flow is reduced, the life of the pump tubing will be shortened. In a certain period of time, when the number of rollers of the pump tube increases, the vacuum performance and pressure performance of the pump tube will also improve.
4. It is easy to assemble
The way the pump tubing is removed can have a big impact on the user's satisfaction with the pump. During pharmaceutical, food supply, and printing processes, pump tubing needs to be replaced frequently (eg, every shift or every day). To save time when cleaning or changing products, use an easy-to-install pump head to save expensive labor costs
