Introducing the Larox LPP80 Peristaltic Pump



January 29, 2007

The Latest Standard in Peristaltic Pump Technology

Lappeenranta, Finland (January, 2007) - Larox Flowsys. Larox Flowsys, the preferred supplier of cutting-edge flow control technology, announces the launch of its product range expansion, the Larox LPP80 peristaltic pump.

"The purpose of the LPP80 product development was to meet demands for a high-volume pump designed for heavy industrial duties as required in most mineral processing and metallurgical applications. The process has resulted in a peristaltic pump with exceptional performance and reliability," says Matti Riihimaki of Larox Flowsys Pump Products.

The Larox LPP pumps incorporate a unique patented rolling design, which is the first real change in the industry in over 30 years. This advanced design eliminates friction, maximizes hose life and lowers energy consumption. The roller is mounted on a crankshaft creating eccentric rotation during the 360 degree operating cycle. Compared to conventional peristaltic pumps, the LPP pumps generate 100% more flow per compression. This significant benefit cannot be overstated.

Highly robust and reliable, these pumps can handle abrasive, corrosive, viscous or crystallizing media and slurries with high solid content. The new LPP80 pump has a flow capacity of up to 40 m3/h and a maximum operating pressure of 7.5 bar. Larox LPP peristaltic pumps are equipped with in-line pipe connections; an optional hose leak detection unit and a patented adjustment mechanism that senses hose wear when compression is readjusted. This helps to maximize hose lifetime and minimize the risk of over-compression. The compression adjustment is based on measuring the compression force making readjustment easy.
