Masterflex peristaltic pumps are highly-suited for pharmaceutical liquid filling applications – from benchtop fillers to large-scale auto-matic systems. Unlike many pump designs, Masterflex pumps easily maintain a precise, constant flow rate with excellent repeatability.
Maintaining precise dosing accuracy with high repeatability presents major challenges for liquid fillers – especially when operating centrifugal or rotary lobe pumps for lower volume products such as vials, single doses and injectables. Precision liquid filling is crucial for product integrity, and high repeatability ensures production schedules can be precisely set and met. It is often difficult to pump ultra-precise flow rates with rotary lobe pumps, however. And, like centrifugal pumps, they are often time-consuming to clean and sterilize.
