Peristaltic pump transfers challenging liquids

By Control Engineering Staff February 1, 2006

Wanner Engineering ’s Vector-Series-3005 peristaltic-pump is rated for continuous duty pumping of harsh liquids up to 200 psi. Low maintenance features include: heavy-duty roller-bearings; absence of cups, packing, or seals; complete isolation of pumped fluids; and a lubricant-filled cavity for constant lubrication. It’s self-priming and can run dry without damage. The pump’s “roller and shoe” design reportedly requires less starting torque and creates less abrasion than typical straight-shoe models, increasing the lives of motors, drives, and hoses.

It is available in a wide range of configurations and flows, handling fluids with viscosities up to 100,000 cps, at temperatures up to 180
