AFX Pumps

Simple in design –Simple in operation

Building upon the already well proven pumping concept, Afromix have brought a fresh new approach to the world of peristaltic pumping. Combining the benefits of compression rollers in peristaltic tube pumps with lubricated compression shoes in peristaltic hose pumps, significant operational cost saving benefits have been achieved.

Maintenance times have been significantly reduced due to simple and practical design concepts, with whole life cost of ownership in mind.

Operating Principle

The pumping action results from alternately compressing and relaxing a specially designed machined hose between the pump housing and the pump compression rollers. The fluid is pushed along the hose towards the discharge by the compression rollers, whilst the reopening hose behind the roller draws more fluid into the pump. With 100% hose closure at all times, there is no internal slip. This ensures excellent metering accuracy and pressure delivery. With no seals or valves, abrasive and particle-laden slurries are handled with ease. The inner wall of the hose is the only part in contact with the pumped fluid making it ideal for aggressive fluids.
