Peristaltic pump enables fast tube replacement in the laboratory

North Ridge Pumps have now released their Boyser M LAB pump for cleanroom applications. This triple roller design enables highly accurate flows and samples to be taken with minimal pulsations in pharmaceutical & chemical applications often tasked with creating new chemical blends, varying mixtures, molecular testing and experiments.

Peristaltic pump enables fast tube replacement in the laboratory

The pump head allows hose to be changed in seconds, making it suitable for applications where single passthrough is used and cross-contamination is not permissible, to retain sample integrity.

As multiple hoses can be utilised with this pump quickly, it enables different hoses to be used for varying chemical blends, flavours, and mixtures. Hoses can also be supplied in long lengths for single-use applications to prevent cross-contamination while maintaining production hygiene.

The M Lab is available with an optional built-in inverter drive and LCD Display for feedback, easy calibration and sample control. The M Lab is part of the DS-M range of industrial peristaltic pumps, the company's smallest peristaltic pump series, which are commonly used within the Pharmaceutical, Chemical and Food industry.

They are typically used for dosing or transferring small amounts of products at low pressure. They have a compact design while remaining powerful, reaching discharge heads of 20m.

Pumps have six different tube diameters which are interchangeable between the 18 pump sizes/configurations available.

Double-head versions of the DSM and DSM Lab Model allow twice the fluid output via a single motor with pump heads operating in conjunction, but with separate suction and discharge lines. These can be used to pump the same or two different fluids separately, achieving the duty of two pumps in one.

Typical applications and industries include:

  • Water treatment: sampling, feeding filtering membranes, metering of chemicals such as iron chloride, sodium hypochlorite, iron sulphate
  • Metering of products with solids in suspension: lime milk, potassium permanganate, active charcoal; metering of polymers
  • Food/beverage: dosing of additives in bread and pastry making, drinks, juices, sauces, colorants, lactic ferments
  • Chemical dosing: dosing of colourants, pigments, resins, latex, acids, inks, anti-foaming agents
  • Other sectors: laboratories, paper industry, printing, packing, ceramics, agriculture and mining
