Process Tubing Pumps Enable Bulk Transfer of Viscous and Shear-sensitive Fluids
Cole-Parmer has redesigned its line of Masterflex B/T process pumps, which enable bulk transfer of viscous and shear-sensitive fluids. At the core of this design is the pump head door that opens fully to allow easy access to change or inspect the tubing. Optimal occlusion is automatic when the door is closed and latched. A secure retention mechanism grips the tubing for trouble-free loading and prevents tubing creep or roll. Additionally, a flush-mounted, corrosion-proof latch offers one-handed opening and closing without the use of tools.
The consistent performance of these pumps relies on the PerfectPosition pump tubing. PerfectPosition tubing features retention marks to indicate the exact tubing alignment needed for optimal performance and tubing life. Two tubing sizes — B/T 87 and B/T 91 — provide enhanced pumping performance in high-pressure applications and deliver flow rates from 0.67 to 37 LPM.
In addition, the cast-aluminum housing offers quiet operation while withstanding rugged conditions. An epoxy-powder coating on the housing prevents chemical corrosion and improves cleanup. The easy-open front cover swings away for CIP or SIP protocols.
