The peristaltic feed pump (also peristaltic feeder) is used for the intermediate feeding of coating powders using little air by means of alternating pinch valves. This is a passive system that is filled from above. A typical application is feeding powder recovered from a cyclone. The peristaltic feed pump includes a control that coordinates the alternating operation of the valves and thus the blow-out cycles. This system offers robustness and paint change reliability.
