Silicone tube is a circulation and coating carrier for liquids, gases and other materials. Silicone tubes are widely used in modern industry, defense industry and daily necessities because of their good temperature resistance and physiological stability. There are many types of silicone tubes, such as medical silicone tubes, food-grade silicone tubes, industrial silicone tubes, silicone special-shaped tubes, peristaltic pump silicone hoses, etc. Different types of silicone tubes have different properties. Therefore, the industries they are used in are also different. So today the silicone tube manufacturer will talk to you about peristaltic pump silicone hose.

How to correctly install the silicone hose of the peristaltic pump?

1. The pump must be kept stable to reduce vibration and noise.

2. There is a flexible or rigid nipple (about 80 to 100 cm) between the outlet flange of the peristaltic pump.

3. No need to prime the pump when starting it. Therefore, the installation height of the pump can be above the material level, without the need for auxiliary pipelines and starting facilities. However, the height difference should not exceed 20 meters.

4. When the conveying medium has high viscosity, large particles, easy sedimentation, and poor fluidity, the pump is usually installed under the material.

5. When using the pump, be sure to keep your elbows small (especially right-angle elbows). Generally, the outlet diameter of the outlet is equivalent to the diameter of the hose. For materials with long pipelines, high viscosity, and poor fluidity, the outlet diameter should be 1.2 to 1.3 times the diameter of the pump hose.

6. Check valves are not allowed to be installed at the inlet and outlet of the pump.

7. A pressure gauge must be installed at the pump outlet of the peristaltic pump to monitor the movement of the pump.

8. The inlet and outlet of the pump are in the same direction as the pump, and the inlet and outlet of the pump can be interchanged. It is decided by the user based on the pipeline and actual conditions.

9. Electrical devices should be equipped with reverse buttons to facilitate repair, pipe replacement and self-cleaning.

Whether the peristaltic pump silicone hose is installed correctly is very important for its effectiveness. If the peristaltic pump silicone hose is installed improperly, its performance will be directly affected. It even affects the transportation effect of materials. Therefore, when using peristaltic pump silicone hose, you must install it according to the above method!
