The operating principle of the LPP-T pump 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 gets filled with the medium. No backward flow can occur as the hose is squeezed tight by the roller.
A single, bearing-mounted roller presses up against the hose only once per 360 degree operating cycle, producing the maximum flow per revolution
Flowrox LPP-T Pumps incorporate an advanced design, which eliminates friction, maximizes hose lifetime 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-T pumps double the flow per hose compression.
Savings you can count on The LPP-T pumps are manufactured using durable elastomers and advanced body materials making them perfect for pumping a wide range of media. They provide substantial savings through improved process performance and efficiency, long service intervals and low maintenance costs.
The LPP-T pump hose includes three sets of layers: the inner layer (only layer in contact with the medium), the reinforcement layers (give the hose its pressure retaining capability) and the outer layer (facilitates the hose return to its original shape after compression creating a suction effect.)
