 The peristaltic pump, also called hose pump is part of the positive displacement volumetric pump group, these pumps have a quite simplistic yet extremely robust design which allows them to be used with difficult applications such as transferring high viscosity products and fluids where a high concentration of solids is expected, many of them being applications where other pumps would fail. As one of their popular names indicates the pumping action is done by a combination of a hose located inside the casing of the pump and a rotor with a set of rollers or pads/shoes compressing the hose, by  pressing the hose while continually rotating the rollers or pads push the fluid out of the inlet side and onto the discharge side of the hose which means the flow rate achieved is directly proportional to the speed the rollers rotate and squeeze the tube/hose, this action also creates a negative pressure on the suction side of the pump of up to 9 m.w.c., meaning the pump can self-prime and reach a suction lift of up to 9 metres, this together with the ability to run dry indefinitely make the peristaltic pump a suitable option for most pumping applications.

 

Another advantage these pumps have is how easy and cheap they are to maintain as the hose is both the only wearing part in the pump and the only part which is in contact with the fluid, this obviously means the compatibility of the hose is quite important as the wrong material could mean the hose has to be changed quite often increasing the running cost of the pump dramatically, another critical point when selecting a peristaltic pump is to select the running speed correctly, a pump running too quick for a long period of time could also damage the tube/hose therefore it is recommended to keep the running speed as low as possible for applications where a 24 hour operation is required.

 

The NRT-300TB pump range is typically used in construction sites or remote locations where an electric power supply is not available, these pump range can be supplied with either a petrol engine or an electric motor, this pump range is available with three hose materials being natural rubber, Hypalon and nitrile rubber also called Buna or NBR. This particular model is recommended for applications with a max. operating time of 5 hours continuously and is not suitable for hazardous, non-safe environments as the pump is not explosion proof (ATEX) certified.

 

Hoses are colour coordinated in order to avoid confusions in terms of material compatibility, this also helps the operator to recognise the type of hose required when a replacement is needed, colour and materials classification as per below;

 

NR (Natural rubber): Yellow

NBR (Nitrile rubber): Red

CSM (Hypalon): Black

FAQS

Yes, absolutely! Due to their unique design, peristaltic pumps can run dry indefinitely. As there is no mechanical seal that requires lubrication and the only pumping component is a rubber hose, the pump can run without fluid for long periods without risk of damage to the internal components or motor.
A pump must be primed in order to operate correctly, this means that the pump casing and inlet pipe must be filled with fluid and the air removed before operation. This needs to be done manually by the pump operator for a non-self-priming pump each time the pump is used to avoid damage from dry running. A self-priming pump removes these issues by completing the priming process automatically. The air is removed from the inlet pipework and pump casing when the pump is activated. Self-priming pumps are particularly useful for installations with a suction lift on the inlet side of the pump, the pump will draw the fluid up the pipework by creating a vacuum and removing any air that is present. In ideal conditions, a self-priming pump can lift fluids up to around 9m on the inlet side, however this figure is affected by fluid viscosity, pipework bore and other installation conditions, therefore this figure can be much lower from case to case. Allowances must also be made for wear and tear; suction lift capabilities will be much lower for older and worn pumps.
Please be aware that the figures displayed relate to the largest pump from this range of products, not specific models. A typical rule of thumb with peristaltic pumps is that the maximum solids size is equal to the internal diameter of the hose.

A clear picture of the pump system is required to make an accurate selection. The main pieces of information required include; a description of the application, bore of pipework, the fluid, viscosity, size and type of solids, flow rate and pressure/head. With these pieces of information, a pump can be sized correctly to ensure it delivers the required flow rate and pressure and that is also operates at its best efficiency point to lower lifetime costs. Viscosity is a major factor when selecting the correct motor speed. A full speed pump will not transfer high viscosity fluid correctly, whereas a slower speed pump will have a much gentler pumping action. Knowing if the pump is running intermittently or continuously also allows the correct motor speed to be selected. For instance, a pump running continuously 24/7 will require a slower speed motor rather than a full speed motor. Running the motor slower and oversizing the pump will reduce wear of the motor and the pump, therefore lowering maintenance costs during their lifetime.
Firstly, always check the compatibility of the materials available against the fluid being pumped. The main materials to check are the connections and the hose. It may be that more than one material is suitable for your fluid and selection could be based on the application type. For instance; NR, NBR, EPDM, NBR-A, HYPALON, NORPRENE are all suitable for water. If it is a simple transfer application, then the most cost-effective material will be best. However, if it involves abrasive solids or there is another variable to consider, then an alternative material may be a better selection.
Rollers and shoes are the rotating components in peristaltic pumps, they are two different designs for different application types. Although different, both operate in a very similar manner. The shoes/rollers are connected to a shaft from the motor/gearbox, these rotate at a low speed and squeeze the hose inside the pump to force the fluid round.

The roller design has the main benefit that far less lubrication is required for the hose, however the pump is limited to a maximum pressure of 8 bar.

Other benefits of the roller design include;
• Longer hose lifespan, energy savings up to 30% compared to a shoe pump design.
• Easier maintenance (there is no need to drain lubricant from the pump and then to refill again, less mess).
• Any product leakage is 100% recoverable from the drainage port (lubricant from a shoe pump can mix with the leaked product and is then not recoverable).

The shoe design requires the hose to be submerged in large quantities of lubricant, however the pump can achieve pressures up to 15 bar.

Both designs are available with the same types of inlet/outlet connections and accessories such as variable speed drive and leakage sensor. The best solution for you is entirely dependent on the application, fluid and flow rate/pressure requirements.
This depends entirely on the application and can vary case by case. The life of the hose is affected mainly by the abrasiveness of the product being pumped, the pump speed (RPM) and how many hours a day the pump is operating. Hose life can be optimized by making the correct pump selection at the beginning of the process. For example, we recommend installing a larger pump running at a very low RPM if the fluid is abrasive and the pump is running 24 hours a day. By using a larger pump at a slower speed, the hose will wear far less, and the life will be extended significantly.
