The operating principle of the Flowrox hose pumps is based on the peristaltic effect. As the cylindrical rotor rotates along the hose, the process medium gets pushed forward through the hose. At the same time, the hose behind the compression point reverts to its original circular shape creating a suction effect at the pump inlet port. As a result, the hose bore is re-filled with the medium. No backward flow or slip can occur as the hose is squeezed tight by the roller.
Due to their technical features, Flowrox hose pumps provide exact flow per revolution. They also incorporate an advanced rolling design, which eliminates friction, maximizes hose life and lowers energy consumption. Energy efficiency, long hose life and low maintenance generates substantial savings during the life cycle of peristaltic pumps. Lifetime of Flowrox pumps’ hoses is 3-5 times longer than conventional hose pumps.
Trailblazing peristaltic pump technology
Flowrox LPP-T transfer pumps are equipped with a patented hose flange and reliable in-line pipe connections, as well as a hose leak detection unit. Patented adjustment mechanism senses hose wear when compression is readjusted. This helps to maximize hose lifetime and minimize the risk of over-compression. There is no need for shimming. The LPP-T100 is one of the world’s largest hose pumps, with a maximum continuous flow of 100 m³/h.
