Peristaltic Pump handles difficult fluids.

Press Release Summary:

Featuring max flow rate of 14.1 gpm and max discharge pressure of 60 psig, Vector 2006 can move high-viscosity fluids up to 15,000 cP. Pump can handle pasty, pulpy, thick, abrasive, and corrosive solutions as well as fluid containing compressible solids up to 27 mm in size. Self-priming unit offers suction lift capability of 24 ft. Unlike other peristaltic pumps, Vector 2006 features roller mechanism instead of rigid shoe to push fluid through hose, isolating fluid and eliminating contamination.

Wanner Engineering Introduces Vector Model 2006 Peristaltic Pump to Handle Difficult Fluids

Wanner Engineering, Inc., Minneapolis, Minnesota (USA) announces the introduction of the Vector model 2006 peristaltic pump to handle difficult or challenging fluids without altering their composition. The pump can move high-viscosity fluids (up to 15,000 cPs) and pasty, pulpy, thick, abrasive, and corrosive solutions as well as fluids containing compressible solids up to 27 mm in size. It can be used to pump process fluids such as acids, slurries, sewage, chemicals, cosmetics, pigments, dyes, paints and inks, plus a variety of foodstuffs in commercial, institutional, industrial, and municipal facilities, according to Wanner Engineering. The Vector 2006 has a maximum flow rate of 14.1 gpm (53.4 l/min) and maximum discharge pressure of 60 psig (4.1 bar). Its suction lift capability is 24 ft. (7.3 m).

The self-priming Vector 2006 compresses and relaxes a hose to pump fluid. Unlike many other peristaltic pumps, it features a roller mechanism instead of a rigid shoe to push the fluid through the hose, Wanner Engineering states. This isolates the fluid being pumped within the hose so it can handle difficult fluids without contamination and to help ensure longer service life with less downtime and maintenance. Vector pumps can run dry without damage and have no seals or packing that can leak, clog, wear out, or require replacement. They can also be used as a vacuum pump to clean up spills or to evacuate gases; or used as a metering pump because it is a positive displacement pump in which output flow is directly proportional to pump speed.
