Peristaltic pumps work by compressing and relaxing a hose that’s positioned between a rotating device and a circular pump housing. Most peristaltic pumps use rigid shoes that rub and torque the hose.Vector uses rotating rollers that provide the same push with far less hose wear.
Fluid positioned ahead of the rollers gets pushed forward as the rollers rotate inside the case. Meanwhile, the portion of the hose just behind the rollers rebounds to create a vacuum. This draws fluid into the pumping hose, which is then pushed forward by the rollers. The peristaltic method employed by Vector can create 100% compression at all times, with zero slipping and incredibly accurate metering while producing up to 20-feet of suction lift.
Vector Pumps What Others Can’t
Vector is ideal for abrasive fluids, dyes, thick fluids, solids up 2.5 inches, shear sensitive fluids, stringy material and nasty, corrosive fluids. It’s important to note that even though the pumping action is powerful, Vector won’t cause frothing or delicate emulsions to break up.
No Seals, No Seats, No Valves, No Problems
With a Vector peristaltic pump, fluids never come into contact with moving valves, springs or seals. Instead, the fluid travels through a single hose. This makes Vector perfect for abrasive, shear sensitive, stringy and corrosive fluids.
