Verderflex Pumps

Verderflex is a world class manufacturer of peristaltic tube pumps and hose pumps. Peristaltic pumps are the pumps of choice for applications that require purity and precision. Verderflex pumps are most often used for dosing chemicals and pumping liquids that cannot afford to be contaminated.

Peristaltic pumps are the best for applications in which the media cannot be contaminated because the only part of the pump they ever touch is the tube. This keeps the fluid pure and uncontaminated. Peristaltic pumps are also the best for dosing and precise measurements because they have a gentle action in which the rate and amount of flow can be controlled to the drop.

Verderflex manufactures pumps in a wide range of sizes, from OEM equipment in the food and beverage industry to giant pumps that are among the largest in the world, used for heavy industrial purposes.

Peristaltic Verderflex Pumps

Verderflex pumps are used in a wide range of industries, including food and beverage, wastewater, mining, water, chemicals, printing, packaging and pharmaceuticals.

Verderflex peristaltic pumps provide a “best of both worlds” scenario. They are gentle enough to handle media that can’t handle a lot of force, but they can also withstand some of the most abrasive, corrosive, viscous and high-density media in the industry.

Verderflex pumps are made by Verder Group, who have been around for more than fifty years. Verder Group specialises in process handling, liquids handling and laboratory equipment. They require their employees to engage in continuous, lifelong training to ensure that their company and their products improve every day.

Advantages and Applications of Peristaltic Pumps

Peristaltic pumps have many uses in industry, but their most common use Is for high purity applications. The reason these pumps are preferred for high purity applications is because the material being pumped is confined to the tube. The pump never touches the material and the material never touches the pump. This keeps the pump from contaminating the material and it also keeps the material from contaminating the pump.

Peristaltic pumps are used most often for applications involving metering, dispensing and precise general transfer. The Verderflex range of Peristaltic pumps can work with flows as low as 0.09 mL/min or as high as 1500 litres per minute. They can generate pressure as high as 16 bar.

Because these pumps offer the rare combination of Purity and precision, they are the pumps of choice in many applications that include the dosing or transfer of chemicals and additives for semiconductor, pharmaceutical and food applications.

Because the materials are confined to the tubing, peristaltic pumps only require minimal maintenance and provide an extremely high ratio of service time to downtime.

Peristaltic Pumps: How They Work

Peristaltic pumps Are so named because their action mimics the action in which food and liquids are transferred through humans and animals, called peristalsis. perhaps the best demonstration of peristalsis is watching a snake swallow.

Since pumps don’t have muscles, it is necessary to use rollers to mimic the opening and closing of the tube on a peristaltic pump and move materials forward. The rollers move around on a rotor and close the tube sequentially. This creates a vacuum at the entrance while moving the materials in the pump toward the outlet.

The size of the tube, the amount of materials being transported and the speed of the rollers determine the flow rates of a peristaltic pump. This allows us to precisely control the speed and the amount of materials moved by controlling the size of the tubing and the rate of the rollers.

Peristaltic pumps are available in numerous configurations from the most simple that only pump at one rate to those that are adjusted by computer to control exact amounts of materials being pumped such as in metering applications.

Advantages of Peristaltic Pumps

We have already mentioned the main advantage of peristaltic pumps: they offer the ultimate in Purity because the media being pumped only touches the tube. Another advantage is that they are available in so many different configurations. This allows them to pump a wide variety of fluids.

Peristaltic pumps are classified as self-priming. This means they can transfer fluids into the pump from a dry start. It can be incredibly inconvenient to try and prime a pump while trying not to contaminate the media being transferred. Due to the design and configuration of peristaltic pumps, they are extremely gentle. This allows peristaltic pumps to transfer media that are too fragile for other designs.

Due to the variable speed options, peristaltic pumps are superior for dosing applications and precise measurements. Since the fluid does not contact the pump, the pump requires no cleaning of seals, valves or diaphragms. The only part that needs to be cleaned and replaced on a regular basis is the tubing. This results in reduced maintenance times and reduced downtime.

Because a peristaltic pump is non siphoning, no media are transferred back into the system. This is another reason why peristaltic pumps are the pump of choice for metering.

Applications for Peristaltic Pumps

We would like to give you a short summary of applications for a peristaltic pump. This is in no way complete because there are so many different applications for peristaltic pumps.

Peristaltic pumps are used for pizza sauce dispensing, juice production and the injection of vitamins A & D. They are also used to circulate cell suspension in fermentation. They are used for the aspiration of tissue culture media and harvesting cell media. They are also used to supply nutrients for cultures and for cosmetic dispensing.

Peristaltic pumps are to dispense spray coatings, sterilised media, highly acidic or highly base media, fuels and lubricants. They are used in circuit board manufacturing and in adhesives for cement. Basically, if it needs to be pure and it needs to be precise, a peristaltic pump is probably the right choice.

A Brief Guide to Peristaltic Pumps

Peristaltic pumps are used in many applications where other pumps wouldn’t guarantee safety or purity of the materials being pumped. This is because the pumping mechanism is outside of the tube which is used to transport materials. They are named peristaltic pumps after the digestive mechanism of humans and nearly all animals, called peristalsis.

The best illustration of peristalsis in the human or animal world is when a snake eats a mouse. The snake swallows the mouse and sets of muscles start contracting toward the back of the snake, pushing the mouse through the snake’s digestive system. This is how we swallow and how all mammals and reptiles swallow.

In a peristaltic pump, the pump is pinched by “shoes” or rollers that compress the tube in the direction the fluids are intended to flow. As the tube closes, it forces the fluids forward through the tube. Also, as the part of the tube behind the roller opens back up, it creates a vacuum and encourages fluid to flow into the tube via a partial vacuum.

Applications of Peristaltic Pumps

Peristaltic pumps are used in a variety of industries for a variety of specialty fluids. Peristaltic pumps can keep sterile fluids sterile and keep aggressive fluids from damaging equipment. They are used to pump IV fluids, slurries with high concentrations of solids, aggressive chemicals and other fluids that must be kept from the outer environment.

Verderflex Peristaltic Pumps in Action

Verderflex peristaltic pumps, also called hose pumps, are used mainly for dosing chemicals and pumping liquids in situations that don’t allow cross-contamination. Because the pumping mechanism exists solely outside the hose, the hose can be kept 100% sanitary and contaminant-free.

The composition of the hose also allows Verderflex peristaltic pumps to transport a wide variety of fluids, including those that are shear sensitive, high-density, viscous, abrasive or highly corrosive. This makes Verderflex peristaltic pumps mainstays of the food and beverage, mining, water, wastewater, printing, packaging and pharmaceutical industries.

How Verderflex Peristaltic Pumps Work

Peristaltic pumps mimic the most natural way to move fluids: the process of peristalsis. Peristalsis is how most mammals, including humans, transport food and beverages through the body. In mammals, the “tube” starts at the throat and esophagus, goes through the stomach and intestines and exits the body.

However, the best illustration of peristalsis in nature is when a snake swallows a small animal. The muscles use the action of peristalsis to make the tube smaller at the front, pushing the prey or food toward the back of the body. In mammals or reptiles, peristalsis is done by muscular action.

But in a peristaltic pump, peristaltic action is caused by one or more rollers, also called wipers, shoes or lobes. These rollers are attached to a rotor which pushes them against the tube, compressing it while moving in the direction in which the fluids are to be pumped.

Advantages of Peristaltic Pumps

As we mentioned, the main advantage of peristaltic pumps is that the inside of the hose is the only part of the pump that touches the fluid being moved. This keeps your fluids sterile when necessary. In addition no fluids get anywhere else on the pump. That means there are no parts to be cleaned or replaced, such as seals, valves or diaphragms.

Peristaltic pumps are also self-priming. Because their pumping action is gentle, they can be used for transporting cells and large proteins without damage. Because of variable speed controls and accurate transport, peristaltic pumps are perfect for dosing. Since peristaltic pumps are non-siphoning, there is no flow of fluids back into the system.

All About Verderflex Pumps

Verderflex pumps are most often used for sterile applications, precise applications such as chemical dosing or large scale operations where aggressive chemicals or slurries with a high solid content need to be transported.

Their smaller pumps are used in beverage, printing, medical, pharmaceutical and even packaging. Larger tube or hose pumps are used in the wastewater, mining and water industries.

Advantages of Verderflex Peristaltic Pumps

As we explained in another blog post this month, peristaltic pumps work by squeezing a tube to mimic the human and animal process called peristalsis. The moving parts of the pump are on the outside and the fluid to be moved is inside of the tube. This means the material of the tube can be adjusted to handle abrasive or aggressive chemicals.

It also means that the fluid only touches the inside of the tube. That makes it easier to keep the tube clean and guarantees that nothing will contaminate the contents inside. It also keeps the fluids from affecting the moving parts, the rotors and rollers, in any way.
