Research I Peristaltic Pumps

An Research I peristaltic pump. Spectrum Chromatography sells a pumping system for use in low-pressure liquid chromatography. This pumps also finds frequent use as general-purpose laboratory pumps. Each pump includes one pump head, a second pump head can be added to make a 2 channel peristaltic pump.

Peristaltic pumps offer several advantages over other type of laboratory pumps. The most significant advantage is that the only wetted material is the tubing you select. This permits easily determination of the chemical compatibility of the pump and replacing the tubing eliminates any possibility of carry-over.

The pump offered by Spectrum is sold as a Research I pump, it has a top speed of 600 RPM. Each pump is sold wiwth 1 pump head and has sufficient driving power to run a second pump head (purchased separately). Each pump also has remote control capabilities which allow them to be stopped remotely (e.g. by a CF-1 fraction collector at the end of a run). The 600 RPM can provide the flow rate necessary for the efficient operation of even a 15  diameter column.

The pumps work with almost any soft, flexible tubing with a 1/16 inch wall thickness and an outer diameter of 7/16 inch (11.1 mm) or less. The tubing can be loaded into this pump head without removing the pump head from the pump.
