Graco EP2 & EP3 Series Peristaltic Pump Advantages
These pumps utilize a single, oversized roller that compresses low friction hose through a full 360° rotation. High-performance, electrically-driven Graco hose pumps deliver more flow per revolution than conventional designs. Durable, corrosion-resistant stainless steel casings and nitrile elastomer materials ensure that these pumps can withstand even the toughest pumping challenges. Graco peristaltic pumps feature no valves, seals or glands, and offer a removable cover, making for easy and inexpensive maintenance processes. Graco pumps are reversible and can be used to empty lines and clear blockages during heavy-duty applications.
Why Choose a Peristaltic Pump?Peristaltic pumps are known for their versatility and provide a single solution for pumping fluids, slurries, chemicals and most liquids. These pumps rely on two pressing shoes that create a vacuum to steadily draw pumped liquid into the hose. The hose rotation speed can be adjusted to meter or dose fluids. The positioning of each shoe in the pump maintains pressure within the pump to prevent backflow. The enclosed pump prevents fluids from contacting any other part of the pump outside of the inner surface hose, tube and connectors, making it popular for transferring chemicals in mining and water treatment applications.
Your peristaltic pump should feature the correct capacity, piping material and flow rate to meet your application needs. If you are not sure which model is best for your application, our friendly and knowledgeable customer service team can help you select the right pump for your unique needs.
Graco EP2 & EP3 Hose Pump FeaturesEP2 and EP3 models produce a gentle pumping motion that is ideal for shear sensitive materials and fragile cell structures. This makes it easy to sterilize and clean interior pumping surfaces. Additional features of the Graco EP2 & EP3 include:
- Up to 50% more flow per revolution than conventional pump designs
- One hose compression per revolution to extend hose life
- Zero moving parts in the fluid stream
- Compact footprint for easy installation in tight spaces
- Integral drive and motor can run as low as 1 RPM
- “Quick change” one-piece hose clamp assembly
Choosing Between the Graco EP2 & EP3 Hose PumpThe Graco EP2 & EP3 hose pumps offer a variety of benefits, including a similar max discharge pressure at 125 psi. However, the EP2 is typically used for chemical metering applications. The EP3 can be used for chemical metering applications in addition to sanitary applications. The EP3 has a larger capacity, port size and a more powerful motor for larger fluid handing projects. The EP3 also offers a higher continuous flow rate for advanced pumping processes.
