Hypro roller pumps are designed for creating and boosting pressure in fluid circuits. The economical rotary-action roller principle requires no check valves, while providing positive displacement characteristics with less friction and lower starting torque than other pumps.
Ever wondered how these pumps work? Basically the pump receives fluid through the inlet port where it's captured and transported by the rollers. Afterwards the fluid is expelled through the outlet port. Easy, right?
Hypro roller pumps include housings and rollers, which come in a variety of materials that makes them resistant to a wide range of chemicals. The standard models of roller pumps rotate counterclockwise, when looking at the shaft end of the pump. However, reverse rotation roller pumps are also available if you need them.
