BOYSER FMP80 Peristaltic Pump Overview

The FMP80 is our largest design of roller hose pump built for heavy industrial use. Equipped with roller technology, it is designed for abrasive fluid handling at pressures up to 8 Bar, and flow rates up to 42M³H.

The FMP series of peristaltic pumps is part of the rotary positive displacement volumetric pump family meaning they consistently deliver the same flow across a range of pressures and affected little by viscosity.

These pumps have a simplistic yet robust design that enables them to be used for the most arduous of applications, transferring high viscosity and abrasive solid laden fluids, in applications where other pumps would fail.

Typical fluids handled by this pump include Glue, Resins, Ink, Paint, Anti-foaming & foaming fluids, Dyes, Detergents, Oils, Concrete, Grout, Mud, Sludge and Sewage or Effluent.

Heavy Duty Design & Integrated Features

This unit has been heavily optimised for industrial use. Manufactured with a hinged door, internal inspection and hose replacement is easy to undertake utilising a single person. The casing can be accessed easily, enabling maintenance to be undertaken quickly without special tools or lifting equipment.

The internal working mechanism is fitted with Stainless Steel roller technology as opposed to shoes which are more commonly found in peristaltic pumps. Rollers reduce the amount of hose wear on the pump, allow a greater range of flow as units can operate as low as 1rpm, and reduce the amount of energy required to operate the pump.

The connected gearbox is fitted with oversized integrated bearings, contributing to longevity as the pump is not solely reliant on the motor bearings for load absorption.

A patented hose clamp consisting of only 6 parts enables quick removal and fitting of the pumps internal hose. It ensures a tight fit without pressure, deformation, wear or restriction of fluid passage in any way.

Working Operation

As one of their popular names implies ‘hose pumps’, the working motion is performed via a combination of a rubber hose located inside the casing of the pump which is the only wearing part and a rotor with a set of rollers or shoes which compress the hose as they rotate.

By pressing the hose whilst continually rotating in a 360° motion, the rollers or shoes gently convey the fluid from the inlet and towards the discharge. This pumping action means that flow is directly proportional to speed of rotation ensuring a predictable linear flow ideal in dosing or transfer applications.

The pumping action creates a strong negative pressure at the suction of the pump, enabling the pump to self-prime and reach a suction lift of up to 9 metres vertically. This combined with the ability to run dry indefinitely and transfer gas entrained fluids makes the peristaltic hose pump the ideal solution for most pumping applications.

Our hose pumps are available with integrated frequency drives for variable flow, ATEX rated (explosion proof) motors or hydraulic motor to suit a variety of installations. As there are no internal valves the unit is fully reversible.

There are a wide range of accessories available to provide a complete custom solution for most applications, which are detailed below:

Available Accessories:

•    Pulsation Dampener – Fitted to the pump discharge this ensures a smooth and stable flow, reducing pulsations by up to 98%. This is particularly beneficial when using control equipment such as pressure switches or flow meters during bottling or packaging.

•    Hose Leakage Sensor – The sensor detects if fluid has entered the casing, signalling an alarm to warn the operator that reactive maintenance is required. The device is connected to the pump casing and wired back to an external control panel. This is particularly useful for unmanned operation, during hazardous fluid handling or continuous operation in critical applications.

•    Anti-corrosive Coating – The internal casing can be coated in Halar (ECTFE) for extra corrosion resistance which is recommended when the pump is installed in a corrosive or hazardous environment.

•    Variable Speed Drive – The pump is supplied fixed speed as standard, an inverter can be fitted to the motor to enable variable flow rates quickly something which is often required in dosing and flow critical applications.

•    Priming Pump –For high suction lifts of viscous liquids an air operated vacuum pump ensures the hose does not collapse under extreme priming, quickly returning to shape maximising suction lift accelerating priming of the main pump.

•    Hopper Feeder – For dry and highly viscous fluids, a hopper with eccentric screw feed is installed at the pump inlet ensuring voids do not form in pipework and that the pump is continually fed with product which does not flow under normal conditions.

•    Mobile Trolley / Skid Mounted – The pump can be supplied on a mobile trolley for easy portability around site or Skid Baseplate mounted with Forklift slots. Bespoke dimensions and materials are available on request.

Design features:

•        Sealless – Minimising the risk of leakage, reducing the number of spare parts required or kept in stock and accelerating pump maintenance.

•     Non Clogging – as the pump does not contain valves, there are no areas inside the pump for clogging to occur.

•        Capable of running dry indefinitely – Without the need to install protection devices

•        High accuracy – Excellent for dosing applications as flow rate is proportional to speed and the pump operated is not affected by changes in viscosity.

•        Easy and Infrequent maintenance without special tools or extensive training.

•        Self-priming – Up to 9 metres.

•        Shear sensitive – Gentle on the product being pumped ensuring consistency.

•        Reversible flow – Ideal for tank or hose emptying in fluid transfer applications.

•       Non Slip design enabling a wide viscosity handling regardless of how the fluid changes with temperature.

•        Resistant to abrasion and corrosion due to the low operating speed, absence of valves or seals and internal casing coating.

•        Easy to clean as the inner hose is the only part in contact with the product.

•        Suitable for food-grade applications as the internal hose can be supplied with FDA approval, and there are no seals, valves or dead zones for bacteria to hide. Can be cleaned via CIP with hose optimised for any chemicals used.

•        Leakage detector for unattended or remote operation.

•        Efficient with Low power consumption.

Typical Applications & Industries:

•    Chemical Dosing

•    Water Treatment

•    Food/Beverage Transfer

•    Construction

•    Sampling

•    Mining

•    Paper Industry

•    Agriculture

•    Pharmaceutical

•    Industrial & Chemical Process Transfer – Glue, Resins, Ink, Paint, Anti-foaming, Dyes, Detergents, Oils, Concrete, Mud, Sludge, Sewage.

run dry? Yes - 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.
Due to the absence of seals, and internal valves, peristaltic pumps are also known as non clog pumps.

Furthermore should anything oversized be drawn into the inlet the pump is fully reversible to remove anything oversized drawn into the inlet.
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.
80mm. A typical rule of thumb with peristaltic pumps is that the maximum solids size is equal to the internal diameter of the hose.
Please be aware that the figures displayed relate to the largest pump from this range of products, not specific models. For details on viscosity for specific models, please refer to datasheets or contact a member of our sales team.
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.

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.
