Applications will need different peristaltic pumps for different functions. In other words, some will need a smaller pump because they have a smaller volume of fluids, while major industrial processes have a bigger mini peristaltic dosing pump. Let us look at the differences of micro syringe pumps and macro pumps by first looking at the fundamentals of peristaltic pumps.
Everything about the peristaltic low flow rate peristaltic pumps
What is a peristaltic pump?
The peristaltic pump squeezes the content via a rotary motion and tends to be the most affordable industrial option.
Syringe micro pump
The laboratory low pulsation dispensing peristaltic pump passes through a small volume at a slow rate, and generate pulses that ensure ultimate accuracy. The syringe pump has a motor with a plate that allows different types of pumping rates, to achieve the processing of liquids with high pressure and high viscosity. Applications that use the micro include:
- Fluid batteries
- Microfluidic reactors
- Nano manufacturers
- Therapeutic applications
We have a couple of different micro pumps and can provide a more detailed report on the application of each one. In addition, it is better to know the technical elements of the pumps to know the most suitable one for your industrial application.
A summary of the micro pump
The pump has a design with small pump heads and tubing, to control different flow rates and dosing. The available micro pump is one of the smallest in the market, so you should be able to achieve high precision tasks at a flow rate of 20ml/minute.
Macro peristaltic pumps
This kind of pump is more affordable and reliable, because it has a rugged design that is different from all other syringe pumps. One operates the pump from either side, so you should be able to operate in a couple of other kinds of applications. The peristaltic pump is reliable because it delivers precise amounts of fluids, so it is an excellent option for handling manufacturing processes that need accurate programming.
How is it different from the micro syringe pump? This one delivers a higher volume in comparison flow, whereas the smaller syringes would take many different steps at a time before achieving the same volume. The most important factors to consider when working with peristaltic pumps includes the following:
- The stroke volume
- Operational frequency
- The actuation method, such as the electrostatic and thermal forces
- Actuation sequence
A summary of our peristaltic transfer pump
The peristaltic pump at APT Instruments has a lot of different kinds of packages and heads, which will all meet your application needs. They are also easy to maintain because they have strong materials to resist chemical corrosion, and the ability to clean themselves from all kinds of fluids, particulates and primers among other content.
The different kinds of pumps have different volumes and flow rates, which means you should be able to find a design and technical precision for extremely specific industrial services. The compact low flow peristaltic pump fits well onto the machine or bench, and will transmit 320ml in a minute, hence suitable for a high volume task.
