Peristaltic pumps (also known as hose pumps, tube pumps) are a type of positive displacement pump which are widely used in water treatment, chemical processing and food processing industries. It creates a steady flow for dosing and blending and is able to pump a variety of fluids, ranging from toothpaste to all sorts of chemicals. Pumping action is achieved by compression of a circular loop of elastomeric hose with two diametrically opposed rotating shoes. This rotational motion forces the fluid in the hose to move ahead of each shoe. When each shoe reaches the end of the loop, the reinforced tube immediately returns to its original shape, thereby ensuring suction and priming. The pump housing is partially filled with lubricant, aiding smooth running of the shoes on the hose. The inside of the hose and hose inserts are the only pieces of equipment in contact with pumped fluids, allowing aggressive and contaminated fluids to be pumped.
