Vector Pumps Handle Aggressive or Corrosive Fluids, High-viscosity Fluids, and High-purity Solutions

Available in 17 models to handle a wide range of processing requirements, Vector peristaltic pumps are ideal for pumping challenging fluids without altering their composition.

They move high-viscosity (up to 100,000 cps) pasty, pulpy, thick, abrasive, and corrosive solutions as well as fluids containing solids up to 3-1/2 inches (90 mm) in size.

Vector pumps isolate the fluid being pumped into a single, durable hose so they can handle tough fluids.

Vector Pump Performance Advantages

Pressure Ratings

Up to 218 psig discharge pressure

Flow Capacities

Up to 211 gpm

Contamination-free Pumping

Fluid is contained in the hose and only contacts the hose

Fluid/Hose Compatibility

Fiber-braided or extruded hoses can handle abrasive or corrosive fluids as well as food products or pharmaceutical materials


Transfers food and pharmaceutical solutions without crushing or foaming the fluids


Requires no priming chamber; suction lifts to 29-1/2 feet depending on model

Dry Running

Externally lubricated hose enables the pumps to run dry without stalling or damaging the hose or roller assembly; avoids pump failure and reducing pump life

Dependable Seal-less Design

out, or need replacement

Handles Abrasive Solids

Can pump abrasive fine particles and solids up to 3-1/2 inches (90 mm)

Easy to Clean

Reversible rotary movement provides for easy-to-clean system piping; flushing may be eliminated

Easy to Service

Simple replacement of hoses saves time; clear plastic cover allows the pump to be checked easily during operation for any problems

Vacuum Capability

A Vector pump can be used as a vacuum pump and for cleaning up spills; evacuates gases as well as fluids

Dosing Capability

A Vector pump is also a positive displacement pump for metering; output flow is directly proportional to pump speed

Vector pumps are ideal for several applications in production of industrial and commercial paints, coatings, inks, and dyes.
