Low-Cost Tube Pumps for Liquids of Low to Medium Viscosity

May 4, 2009
Aalborg presents its Model TPU tube pumps

Aalborg’s Model TPU tube pumps are suitable for liquids of low to medium viscosity. Chemically resistant tubing materials and peristaltic pump head technology provide reliable, long-term pump operation. Four stainless steel rollers minimize pulsation and promote longer tube life. An eight-roller option is also available.

The TPU offers quick and easy tube set-up, changes and replacements. Inside diameters offered are 1/8 inch, 3/16 inch, 1/4 inch or 5/16 inch, each with a 1/16-inch wall thickness. The size and material of the tubing chosen, as well as the selected fixed RPMs of the motor drive, determine the flow rate. Pumped fluid never touches the pump.

Pump design features include:

  • Sturdy occlusion wall and back plate
  • Self-priming
  • Compact, small foot print design
  • Mountable in any direction
  • 115V or 230V service
  • Fixed RPM AC gear motors
