Why Select Ismatec?

  • Flow rates as low as 0.001 mL/min
  • High-accuracy numerical, digital, or programmable speed control
  • Tubing is the only wetted part
  • The quality of Swiss manufacturing
  • Most drives have a 2-year warranty
  • ISO 9000 Registered Supplier
  • CE compliant

Ismatec peristaltic pumps are available as complete systems or as separate drive and pump head components. A pump system includes a drive with a permanently attached pump head; a drive alone requires a separate pump head.

Remote control capabilities make Ismatec pumps ideal for lab automation. Most Ismatec drives offer remote on/off, speed, and directional control. Computer interfacing is possible with all digital drives.

A planetary drive design in which a central gear drives all rollers results in increased flow accuracy and tubing life. Rollers turn in unison to reduce stretching and slippage of tubing.


Selecting an Ismatec Pump

Flow Range depends on drive speed, number of rollers on the pump head, and the size of tubing. For a higher flow range, choose a pump head with fewer rollers. To reduce fluid pulsation, select a pump head with more rollers.

The number of channels refers to the number of pieces of tubing that can be used simultaneously. For example, a four-channel pump head can accommodate four pieces of tubing or four cartridges. Load the four channels with different types and or sizes of tubing then pump a variety of fluids or the same fluid at different flow rates.

Speed. Fixed-speed pumps and drives are simple and easy to use, yet they accept a wide variety of tubing sizes to deliver various flow rates.

Variable-speed pumps and drives accept analog input for remote on/off, speed, and directional control. They are available with numerical or digital display. Digital models provide an analog output to let you monitor flow rate and feature an RS-232 interface.


Selecting Ismatec Tubing

Look for the tubing information icons on each product page to determine at a glance what type of tubing to order for your pumps and pump heads. Flow rates will depend on both the rpm of your drive or pump and on the tubing diameter.
