Peristaltic pump hose is a special hose for peristaltic pump. A common hose can serve for several days or one week. While the quality is very important. Then next let me show you how to choose a peristaltic hose.
The hose should show certain chemical property to transport types of fluid. While this is the chemical compatibility. Like low temp proof, hard to age, corrosion proof, etc.
The corrosion resistance decreases with the increase of temp. Chemicals that have no effect on the pipe at room temp may have an effect as the temp increases.
The use of pumps has limits by the pressure property of the hose.
If the system pressure exceeds the capacity of the hose, it will expand. Then it will cause excessive wear or rupture.
Factors that affect the pressure of the hose include: material, diameter and wall thickness, etc.
The operating temp range of such hose is a factor that users should consider. While the raw material determines that.
The size of the hose has a direct impact on the flow rate. Excellent pump design will consider the inner diameter and wall thickness of the hose. And match the exact hose size or pipe number range. The inner diameter of the hose determines the flow rate. While the wall thickness affects the hose’s ability to rebound. In another hand, it also has a great impact on the life of the hose.
Hoses may need to pass relevant certificates when used for related purpose. Such as USP, EP, FDA, USDA and NSF.
The service life in the pump system is called flexible life. In a specific app, the feature of the pump is very consistent. Thus a thick and large size pump hose has a longer service life.
As I mentioned above, such hose can serve for several days, max 1 week. But the hose from Orientflex has a much longer service life up to 1 month. While this option can help you save much money and time. If you want to learn more about the high quality peristaltic hose, contact us now.
