How to properly maintain the peristaltic pump silicone hose?
With the advent of high temperature weather, ozone is also constantly appearing with ultraviolet rays. During this time, the temperature continues to rise, which accelerates the aging of the silicone hose of the peristaltic pump and shortens the service life. This is a situation that a silicone product manufacturer must face every year. The temperature is too high. The peristaltic pump grade silicone hose is easy to turn yellow, and the color of some colored peristaltic pump grade silicone tubings is easy to degrade and become old. So in such a hot environment, how should we respond and take measures to maintain the peristaltic pump silicone tubing?
First of all, the external ambient temperature is high, we can put the peristaltic pump silicone tubing in some relatively ventilated places, and the peristaltic pump silicone hose that has just been cleaned is properly ventilated, which can not only keep dry but also prevent moisture, and also prevent the peristaltic pump stage. The silicone tube is aging, because the silicone has a strong moisture absorption capacity, the peristaltic pump silicone hose is stored in a ventilated and dry environment, and there should be a shelf between the packaging and the ground. During transportation, rain, moisture and exposure should be avoided to prevent frost.
Secondly, the general peristaltic pump grade silicone tubing has a storage period, which has a great relationship with the temperature. If it is at a room temperature of about 20 degrees, the peristaltic pump grade silicone tubing can generally be stored for three years. If stored at temperatures above 35 or 40 degrees, it is likely that the silicone will stick together in less than a year, so try to use peristaltic pump grade silicone tubing within the specified period.
In conclusion, peristaltic pump silicone tubing not only needs to be resistant to chemicals, but also needs to be resistant to deformation and catastrophic failure during use. The lifespan of peristaltic pump grade silicone tubing depends on many factors, such as pump setup, pump product, and the hose material itself. Overall, some organic thermoplastics appear to outperform silicones, although there is a lot of conflicting data when only considering pump life.
