Tubing is a critical component in any peristaltic pump. Diameter, wall thickness, and material are very important factors in selecting tubing. AccuSaltic pumps are designed to work with many different peristaltic pump tubing sizes and peristaltic pump tubing chemical compatibilities. This allows each AccuStaltic pump to utilize an array of tubes for many different situations.

Inside Diameter:

Peristaltic pump tubing sizes are important. The displacement of a peristaltic pump is determined by the inside diameter of the tube. AccuStaltic pumps are designed for tubing with 1/8” to 1/2” diameters and a displacement of 1.5 ml/rev to 21.7 ml/rev on a single channel.

Wall Thickness:

AccuStaltic pumps are true positive displacement pumps with fixed occlusion. To handle different wall thicknesses, they are made with 3 sizes of interchangeable rotors. Each rotor can handle any tube ID up to 3/4" with the correct wall thickness.

Tubing Wear and Stretch:

AccuStaltic pumps are designed to compensate for the natural wear and stretching that all peristaltic tubes experience. This exclusive design allows for continuous operation without the need to readjust the tubing between normal tube change intervals.

Chemical Resistance:

One of the main reasons to choose a peristaltic pump stems from its ability to handle difficult fluids. Depending on the peristaltic pump’s tubing chemical compatibility, these tubes can resist a variety of very aggressive chemicals. AccuStaltic pumps utilize many types and brands of peristaltic tubing to allow for the proper selection of cost, durability, and chemical resistance. While Ledebuhr Industries supply several standard tubes, many special types may be ordered though us or other sources. Peristaltic tubing manufacturers typically provide compatibility charts for many common chemicals.

Contamination-Free Grade:

While peristaltic pumps are perfect for preventing contamination to the pump, they also protect the fluid from contamination. For applications such as food processing, FDA-approved food grade tubes are available.
