What's A Tube Pump?


    A tube pump is a small pump that uses peristalsis to move liquids from one spot to another. That still might be confusing, so to break it down further. The tube pump, also known as a peristaltic pump, takes advantage of the alternating compression and relaxation of the tube to move liquids through, similar to the manner in which your throat moves food to your stomach and your intestines move it down the digestive tract. They are popular items due to many of their positive benefits and have no need for seals or valves, keeping the wearing parts to a minimum, and making them very easy to maintain. They are easy on shear sensitive products, can handle highly viscous substances, as well as dangerous substances without fear of leaks. Since only one surface within the pump comes into contact with the liquid being moved, they are simple to clean and sterilise. There are no moving parts, meaning there is no need for the constant presence of liquid for the pump to run (they can run dry, in other words). Finally, they are reversible, if you need to back up what you're pumping to empty the device or remove a blockage.
