Our customer, one of the largest UK home fragrance manufacturers contacted us with a high viscosity pump enquiry for transferring wax at 60°C. They were looking for a dosing pump that could do a batch of 400 kg in 10 minutes; the pump would be running intermittently with a maximum of 3 the batches per hour.
From experience we knew that due to the viscous fluid being pumped and low flow rate required by the customer the best solution for the enquiry was a peristaltic pump. Peristaltic hose pumps as they are otherwise known, are very effective in batch transfer/dosing applications where a fixed flow rate is needed repeatedly. We supplied the customer with an industrial peristaltic pump with a 1.1 kW gear box, running at 34 rpm and a designed pressure of 8 Bar.
Easy maintenance is one of the main benefits of these tube pumps, as the only real wear part on the pump is the hose, a relatively low cost part that can be sterilised or changed quite easy and in a very short time without having to dismantle the pump. The hose is also the only part of the pump that is in contact with the fluid.
