At the beginning of designing the peristaltic pump products, it should be taken into account that the peristaltic pump tubing is easy to damage, because the elastic force of the pump tubing produces suction, the strength of the pump tubing produces compression capacity, the flexibility of the pump tubing determines the service life, the inner diameter of the pump tubing determines the flow rate, and the wall thickness determines the efficiency of the pump.
(1) Requirements for peristaltic hoses
The hose of peristaltic pump is special, and there are specific requirements for the wall thickness, elasticity, compression resistance and wear resistance, so it can not be bought casually from the market.
(2) Chemical resistance of peristaltic pump tubing
The chemical resistance of peristaltic pump tubing depends on the material of the pump tubing. Different pump tubing materials can withstand different fluids, such as strong acids and bases.
(3) Applicable environment of peristaltic pump tubing
Peristaltic pump tubing can be used for sterile applications, food applications, high viscosity applications, corrosive chemical applications, etc. The pump tubing is a hose that is special for a peristaltic pump, and the hoses can be supplied according to different standard requirements.
(4) The service life of peristaltic pump tubing
The life of the pump tubing depends on the pump speed and pressure, the material and chemical compatibility of the pump tubing, and the wearability of the fluid being transferred. The lower the speed of the pump is, the longer the life of the pump tubing is. But the life varies according to the material of the pump tubing, so it can range from hundreds to tens of thousands of hours.
