In the various phases of paper production, Rotho peristaltic pumps solve the problem of dosing and transferring chemical additives:
A wide range of tubes and connectors allows the pump to be used for many different kinds of chemical fluids which, thanks to the Rotho technology, never come into contact with the mechanical parts of the pump and therefore do not interfere with its operation.
Choosing the right tube for the application, Hypalon, EPDM, nitrile or natural rubber, guarantees maximum efficiency in 24/7 processes with minimal maintenance and limited downtime.
In this context, the the retractable roller system is fundamental. This device rapidly frees the tube from the grip of one of the two rollers to allow "flushing" whenever necessary, avoiding the tube being stressed by the compressing action of the rollers, particularly in the presence of aggressive and/or high-temperature washing fluids.
The retractable roller device can be operated in perfect safety by an external lever.
All Rotho MS series pumps and the PSF1 model incorporated in a work process involving the pumping of fluids with a tendency to settle and create blockages after a period of inactivity can benefit from the retractable roller system to keep the tube clean and avoid unexpected and damaging clogging.
