Dispensing Peristaltic Pump LABF
Applications include cell culture media transfer, chromatography, chemical reagent dosing and filtration processes. This range features three main pumps with ABS engineering plastic housing, streamlined body design, industrial grade 4.3” colour LCD screen and touch keypad.
The LabF peristaltic dispensing pump is the ideal choice for laboratories and industrial production. It is an intelligent peristaltic pump with dispensing function that is suitable for precision dispensing. The body features a convenient embedded handle, a hidden touch stylus and removable hex keys for removing and swapping the pumps heads if needed.
The touch screen provides easy operation and dynamic display of the current state. You get the complete overview of your dispensing task; dispensing data, setting parameters and system configuration on the same screen.
The speed range varies between the three models from 0.1rpm to 150, 300 or 600 rpm. The 4.3 inch true colour LCD screen has clear and bright picture quality with a dynamic display of real-time transferring status. The flow rate, motor speed, setting parameters and system configuration display in the same screen.
The LabF has various pump heads available depending on your required dispensing volume. We have the larger volume single and dual channel pumps and then the smaller capacity AMC pump head that can have from 2 to 10 channels.
An intelligent calibration function allows the user to calibrate the flow rate and dispensing volume to ensure flow accuracy making this suitable for highly accurate liquid transferring. A fast filling function can wash and also fill fluid into the tubing.
The last running parameters are stored at power down or in the event of an unexpected power loss. A dispensing counting function is convenient for counting the total number of dispensings when dispensing manually.
A supplied foot switch can be connected for start/stop functions or you may control through a switch signal via the RS232/RS485 communication interface. The output signal can also be used for remote monitoring of the pump.
Speed Range0.1 - 600rpm
Flow Rate0.01 - 2280ml/min

- What is a peristaltic pump?
A peristaltic pump is a positive displacement pump that uses rotating rollers or shoes to compress and move fluids through a flexible tube. As the rollers move along the tube, they create a squeezing action that propels the liquid forward in a series of discrete, pulsating steps.
Peristaltic pumps are often used in applications requiring precise and gentle fluid handling, such as in medical and biopharmaceutical research, food and beverage processing, and chemical production. They are particularly well-suited for handling delicate or viscous fluids, as the gentle pumping action minimises the risk of shearing or damaging the fluid.
Peristaltic pumps have several advantages over other types of pumps, including the ability to easily and quickly change the flow rate and direction of the fluid by adjusting the speed and direction of the rollers. They are also relatively easy to clean and maintain, as the fluid only comes into contact with the inside of the tube, which can be easily replaced when worn or contaminated.
- Do peristaltic pumps need priming?
- Peristaltic pumps need no priming and can run dry without damage. For example, our peristaltic pumps are dry running and self-priming with no ancillary equipment, check valves, sealing water flush systems or run-dry protection required.
- What is the benefit of using a Peristaltic pump over a centrifugal pump?
Peristaltic pumps and centrifugal pumps have different applications and advantages, so the choice of which pump to use depends on the specific needs of the system.
Peristaltic pumps are a good choice for applications where gentle pumping, precise flow rate control, and easy maintenance are important factors. However, they may not be the best option for high-flow applications or those that require high-pressure or high-viscosity handling, which are more suited to centrifugal pumps.
- How accurate are peristaltic pumps?
Peristaltic pumps are generally known for their high accuracy and precision, particularly when compared to other types of pumps. The accuracy of a peristaltic pump can be affected by several factors, such as the type of tubing used, the size of the tubing, the flow rate, and the consistency of the fluid being pumped.
Peristaltic pumps are typically positive displacement pumps, meaning they deliver a fixed fluid volume with each pumping cycle, making them highly accurate. The accuracy of a peristaltic pump can be further improved by using high-quality tubing with consistent wall thickness, which can reduce variability in the flow rate.
Another advantage of peristaltic pumps is their ability to handle shear-sensitive fluids, such as certain polymers and biopharmaceuticals, without causing damage or degradation. This is because peristaltic pumps use a gentle, low-shear pumping action that minimises the risk of fluid damage or degradation.
