TPU1 and TPU2 Pump Heads

Peristaltic pump designed to move liquids of low to high viscosity from source to destination at user-set speeds according to the motor installed.

Principle of Operation

Flexible tubing, which conveys fluid from source to destination, is squeezed inside the pump head by rotating rollers against a rigid, crescent-shaped occlusion wall. The rollers induce suction in a gently pulsing rhythm. The occlusion is adjustable to increase pressure, or to decrease pressure for extended tubing life.

Each pump head is mounted on a front panel, with the adjustable occlusion wall and a safety cover.
