In all walks of life, the peristaltic metering pump is widely used for precise liquid transmission. Due to its many advantages such as pollution-free, high precision, and good sealing, this pump sells really well. With more users, the corresponding use problems also follow. Many customers always have some wrong operations when they just begin to use this pump. The following explains the application skills of a peristaltic metering pump.
(1) When using a new pump, it is recommended to check it before testing. Mainly check the integrity of the appearance and whether there is anything missing regarding the accessories.
(2) The test should be carried out according to the product specification, not by guessing. Since industrial peristaltic pumps are constantly improving, reading the manual will help you control the pump faster.
(3) If the pump needs to be used outdoors, a protective cover should be added to the pump. This is because on rainy days, the rainwater may wet the drive, which may cause a short circuit.
(4) Generally, flexible silicone tubing can be used for peristaltic hoses. However, special fluid needs a special hose, so hoses should be used according to the specific conditions rather than generalized.
(5) When the pump is out of use, please add some lubricating oil to the bearing for the next use.
(6) The service life of the pump pipe can be prolonged by loosening the pressure block when the pump is not in use. The pump delivers liquid by squeezing the hose and the rebound of the hose itself to generate suction. In order to maintain the longevity of the peristaltic hoses, when the pump is not in use, try to lift the pressure block of the pump head to make the pump tube in a natural unstressed state, thereby extending the life of the pump tube.
(7) After the pump works for a long time, check the abrasion of the hose to avoid leakage of the hose and other losses.
(8) The inlet of the pipe should be as short as possible, and the joint and diameter of the pipe should not be smaller than the diameter of the stuck pipe installed in the pump head. The suction of the pump is caused by the rebound of the pump tube. If the pipe, especially the water inlet pipe, is too long or has a smaller diameter, it will cause excessive resistance at the suction end. Excessive resistance will block the rebound of the pump tube, resulting in a large actual flow loss (it can be used with a countersunk head). On the contrary, when the diameter of the outlet pipe of the peristaltic metering pump becomes smaller or the pipe is too long, the discharge pressure of the pump is usually small. When the discharge resistance is too large, the output flow will decrease.
