Some people say that there are many problems when use the peristaltic pump. For example, the peristaltic pump hose often bursts. Then what cause the hose burst?
First is the working life
In the usage of peristaltic pump hose, we have to change it regularly. Because the hose has a certain working life. Part of the hose can serve over 1 month, but part of it can just serve several days. Thus you should focus on the change during usage.
In addition, you need to pay more attention to the maintenance. That’s to say you’d better clean the hose after use. Thus the working life of peristaltic pump hose can prolong.
Second is the incorrect usage
If the hose inside the pump head bursts, normally it’s because the hose is too long. Thus the hose touch the flange. Then the flange cuts the peristaltic pump hose.
Then how to solve the problem?
To avoid this effectively, you need to straighten the hose when crimp it. This is to avoid the hose inside the pump head too long. Then fix the hose with connectors on the inlet and outlet points. The problem can be solved only if you do this.
Referring to this problem, let me introduce you how to use the pump correctly.
First, insert the peristaltic pump hose into the pump, then fix it with the pressure adjustment equipment. However, you can’t fix the hose to tight because that will increase the abrasion. Second, never press the switch because it will cause unstable voltage.
Besides the pump, you should pay more attention to the hose. Once you find the hose age, change it in time. In another hand, you need to lean up the hose and store it after use. This can protect the hose well and prolong the lifespan as well. Most important, you’d better choose a right hose according to your medium.
