Guide To: Peristaltic Pumps

Working alongside Albin Pumps for better Peristaltic and Hose Pump Solutions.


What is a Peristaltic Pump?

A Peristaltic Pump is a positive displacement pump that is known for being simple in operation, sanitary, extremely versatile and robust. The pump is designed with rollers or shoes within the pump that push down on the hose to move the product.


How does a Peristaltic Pump work?

The Peristaltic Pump operates by rollers or shoes within the pump turning. As they do, they push down on the wall of the hose within the pump. As they push down and continue to turn, they generate a force that pushes the product through the hose towards the discharge port. The operating principle is much like that of squeezing toothpaste out of the tube, the pressure caused by pushing down and rolling forward forces the product along.

Hose Maintenance

Cleaning the hose:

It is important to clean the hose within your Peristaltic Pump. With certain products, such as sticky fluids, this needs to be done regularly (ideally after every use of your pump) to avoid the product being pumped, hardening the inside of the hose. Luckily, cleaning the hose in your Peristaltic Pump is straight forward as there is no need for the hose to be removed from the pump.

It is important to check that the cleaning liquid being used is compatible with the material that your hose is manufactured from, as well as the temperature of the liquid.

Hose Replacement:

Hose replacement is quite straight forward but it’s important that it is completed by someone who is familiar with the Peristaltic Pump Maintenance Manual.

If your pump installation is fitted with an inverter, it is possible that the inverter can do the work for you. The inverter can feed the hose in and out of the pump. If the hose life is too short, please check that the pump is being operated under the correct circumstances for the material of the hose, this could include:
