Solutions for Peristaltic Pumps

Tekni-Plex Medical is highly skilled in the design, development, and product recommendations of a wide range of peristaltic pump components. Specialized capabilities include materials and high performance tubing recommendations for various peristaltic pump applications.

Peristaltic pumps are a type of positive displacement pump used for pumping a variety of fluids. The fluid is contained within a flexible hose or tube fitted inside the pump casing.

Linear Peristaltic Pumps

Linear peristaltic pumps are typically incorporated in applications where very small volumes of liquid are being delivered. Cleanliness considerations do not translate to applications with very small flow rates and the main attribute for the linear peristaltic pump is its simplicity of design.

Roller Peristaltic Pumps

The roller type design is overwhelmingly the most predominant across the entire spectrum of uses for a peristaltic pump. In a roller type peristaltic pump, a rotating shoe or roller passes along the length of the hose or tube creating a temporary seal between the suction and discharge sides of the pump. As the pump’s rotor turns, this sealing pressure moves along the tube or hose forcing product to move away from the pump and into the discharge line. Where the pressure has been released the hose or tube recovers, creating a vacuum which draws the product into the suction side of the pump, the priming mechanism.
