Peristaltic pumps are a type of positive displacement pump used for pumping a variety of fluids. The fluid is contained within a flexible hose or tube fitted inside the pump casing.

The actual pumping principle, called peristalsis, is based on alternating compression and relaxation of the hose or tube, drawing content in and propelling product away from the pump.

This process makes a peristaltic pump an accurate dosing pump or metering pump. Verderflex pumps clearly outperform other pumps types, such as lobe, progressive cavity or diaphragm pumps.

The unique design of Verderflex© peristaltic pumps makes them ideally suited to a wide range of application areas, including: printing and packaging, laboratory sampling systems, dosing lime in water treatment, slurry transfer in the mining industry and dispensing liquid in vending machines.
