How to Select the Right Liquid Pump Technology for Your Application?

Peristaltic Pumps

Peristaltic pumps are ideal for applications that require minimal cross-contamination (carry-over). The only part of the pump to come into contact with the fluid is the tubing. The ease of replacing the tubing or cassette is a smooth process and ensures high process stability.

Thomas provides peristaltic pumps across many industries, such as: medical, laboratory, industrial, and food and beverage. Our pumps generate flow rates ranging from smaller than 0.0003 cfm (>0.1 ml/min) up to 0.1059 cfm (3000 ml/min) . Various tube materials from silicone over medical grade tubing to FKM tubing are available depending on their compatibility with the media.

Peristaltic Technology Advantages

Whenever viscous media need to be transferred, peristaltic pumps are a great solution, as they do not require valves.

Many medical devices, analytical instruments, and bioprocessing equipment rely on peristaltic pumps, to minimize cross-contamination, which contributes to process stability. Examples of such equipment include bioreactors, cell harvesters, or dialysis machines that incorporate peristaltic pumps for handling fluids.

Liquid Diaphragm Pumps

Thomas is one of few manufacturers with dedicated liquid diaphragm pumps. Our membrane pumps designs feature smaller diaphragm strokes, stiffer diaphragm materials, and more robust bearings than air pumps.

The pumps range from 0.007 cfm (200 ml/min) to 0.0635 cfm (1.8 l/m) and operate in pressures up to 6 bar (61.2 m H2O). Twin head configurations can be offered for high volume requirements. The Thomas liquid pumps range features an extensive range of brushed and brushless DC motors. Depending on the type of liquid, you can choose pump components in the most suitable material, such as EPDM, FKM, PTFE or FFKM.

Main Advantages of Liquid Diaphragm Pumps

Liquid diaphragm pumps show high resistance to pressure combined with continuous runtimes of 10,000 hours or more. They are the best solution for many OEM applications, thanks to the supreme flow to size ratio.

These reciprocating pumps create higher pulsation than other technologies. On top of that, they stand out due to their superior long-term compatibility with aggressive media and unprecedented service-free lifetime.

Liquid Linear Pumps

Linear pumps are a cost-effective solution that provides a long lifetime and emits low sound levels. They are great for low-pressure requirements due to their compact size and hermetical leak tightness.

The Thomas LMF linear pump series provides flow rates up to 0.0105 cfm (300 ml/minute). We offer a choice between EPDM and FKM elastomers and a few options for AC and DC motors.

Main Advantages of Liquid Linear Pumps

Liquid linear diaphragm pumps are quiet and highly efficient. With fewer wearing parts than equivalent reciprocating pump technologies, linear pumps are regarded as long life and low maintenance components for medical, industrial, and environmental applications. These applications can include the delivery of methanol in fuel cells or the dispensing of detergent in cleaning devices.
