FINLAND – The new LPP80 peristaltic pump from LAROX FLOWSYS is designed to meet the demands of a high-volume process in heavy industry duties, particularly in mineral processing and metallurgical applications. The pump has a unique rolling design, the first real change in peristaltic pumps in 30 years, according to Larox. This advanced design eliminates friction, maximizes hose life and lowers energy consumption. The roller is mounted on a crankshaft creating eccentric rotation during the 360 operating cycle. Compared with conventional peristaltic pumps, the LPP pumps generate 100% more flow per compression, a significant benefit.

Highly robust and reliable, this new pump handles abrasive, corrosive, viscous or crystallizing media and slurries with high solid content. The new LPP80 pump has a flow capacity of up to 40 m/h and a maximum operating pressure of 7.5 bar. It comes equipped with in-line pipe connections; an optional hose leak detection unit and a patented adjustment mechanism that senses hose wear when compression is readjusted. This helps to maximize hose lifetime and minimize the risk of over-compression. The compression adjustment is based on measuring the compression force, making readjustment easy.
