Wanner Engineering, Inc. (Minneapolis, MN) introduces the Vector model 2006 peristaltic pump to handle difficult or challenging fluids without altering their composition. The pump can move high-viscosity fluids (up to 15,000 cPs) and pasty, pulpy, thick, abrasive and corrosive solutions, as well as fluids containing compressible solids up to 27 mm in size. It can be used to pump process fluids such as acids, slurries, sewage, chemicals, cosmetics, pigments, dyes, paints and inks, plus a variety of foodstuffs in commercial, institutional, industrial and municipal facilities. The self-priming Vector 2006 compresses and relaxes a hose to pump fluid. Unlike many other peristaltic pumps, it features a roller mechanism instead of a rigid shoe to push the fluid through the hose. This isolates the fluid being pumped within the hose so it can handle difficult fluids without contamination and to help ensure longer service life with less downtime and maintenance.
