As a medium and small flow liquid transfer pump, the peristaltic pump has strong versatility and is used in more and more industries, so daily maintenance is inevitable. Here I would like to share with you how the peristaltic pump performs daily maintenance.
1. The composition of the peristaltic pump
The peristaltic pump is mainly composed of three parts: the driver, the pump head, and the pump tube. The motor of the driver rotates to drive the pump head. After the pump head rotates, the roller squeezes the hose and delivers the fluid. It has a simple structure and is easy to install. This is also a peristaltic pump. One of the reasons pumps are so popular.
2. Hose maintenance
As one of the three major parts of the pump, the hose of the peristaltic pump is a common consumable. Cleaning and maintenance during daily use can effectively prolong the service life of the hose. Generally, it can be sterilized by high temperature or alcohol. When cleaning, there is air in the hose, so that the cleaning liquid cannot enter the interior, and the cleaning liquid can also be delivered by a peristaltic pump.
When installing the hose, it is necessary to pay attention to that the roller is in the center of the pump head, and the gap between the pressure tubes should be adjusted well, otherwise the hose will be damaged quickly.
3. Maintenance of drive and pump head
The maintenance of these two components is relatively simple, because during the transmission process, the transmission liquid will only come into contact with the inner wall of the pump tube, so the driver and the pump head only need to be kept clean. For example, there is a lot of dust in the environment, it is recommended to use a transparent film for a shield.
