Peristaltic Pump

Peristaltic pump is a machine which applies the principle of peristalsis where constriction along the tube due to its elasticity generates pressure fluctuation.

Tube that should resist crushing as long as possible due to elastic and not plastic deformation is a fundamental component of the pump.

It is elasticity that allows tube to regain its original size and ensure the fluid pressure and the suction capacity.


HELIOS Peristaltic Pump is the choice of major industries in various fields.

They are suitable for abrasive products, acids, sensitive, viscous and dense.

Pumps can run dry, are self-priming and reversible.

They work without valves or seals which often causes breakage or malfunction of other types of pumps.

These pumps can be successfully applied both in severe conditions such as pumping of abrasive slurries, slurries or filamentous, highly viscous fluids, in cases requiring considerable suction capacity, or requiring maximum delicacy in transfer of fluid in order to keep its original characteristics (no emulsions, no foam, no contamination).

They could be used in explosive environments and provide a great dosage precision.

Due to their constructive simplicity and reduced maintenance time HELIOS peristaltic pumps save your expenses since the only component to wear is the rubber tube which can be replaced quickly and easily.

Helios Peristaltic Pumps are self-priming volumetric pumps, ideal for continuous fluid transfers or dosing. They are suitable for pumping alkaline, abrasive, or acidic fluids and for food applications.
Helios Peristaltic Pumps are designed to operate dry, without the need to maintain a constant oil bath for the tube. They can transfer fluids with a high concentration of suspended solids, which are treated gently, making them also suitable for the food industry.

Sectors and Applications

  • WATER TREATMENT: sludge transfer, filter press feeding, chemical dosing;

  • FOOD: transfer of liquids and creams, filler machine feeding, CIP washings;
  • PAPER AND FLEXOGRAPHIC: dosing of inks and glues;
  • DETERGENTS and COSMETICS: transfer of creams, viscous products, and detergent dosing.


    Depending on specific needs, Helios peristaltic pump tubes are available in various materials, including Hypalon, NR, NBR, Norprene, Silicone, EPDM, Pharmed, and Tygon. They can be equipped with a standard electric motor to ensure a fixed flow rate or with a variable flow rate by equipping them with a pneumatic motor, mechanical variator, or motor-inverter. Process connections can be hose barb, threaded, flanged, or tri-clamp.

    Fluimac Peristaltic Pumps are structurally very simple and have few wear components. Among these, only the tube requires periodic replacement depending on operating conditions. Factors that affect tube life include temperature, pressure, chemical aggression, abrasion, and rotation speed.
