    What is a peristaltic pump? 

    A peristaltic pump sometimes referred to as a roller pump, is a mechanical device that uses suction or pressure to move liquids, gases and air. 

    At Bid on Equipment, you’ll find many types of used pumps for sale:

    Peristaltic pumps are made for many different applications. Used to transport sterile fluids from one point to another, peristaltic pumps are commonly used in a medical setting. IV fluids and blood both require a pump like this to prevent exposure to air and other environmental elements that can cause an unwanted reaction. Peristaltic pumps are also used to move reactive chemicals and slurries so these fluids or gasses are kept isolated and safe. 

    What is a metering pump? 

    A metering pump is a type of pump that moves exact amounts of fluid with precision. Timing and volume are calculated down to the smallest measurements. Used to pump water, chemicals, solutions, and other fluids, a metering pump often operates with a constant flow rate. 

    At Bid on Equipment, you’ll find many types of used metering pumps for sale:

    Lubricator pump
    Gas feed pumps

    What do reciprocating pumps do?

    A reciprocating pump is designed to move fluid or gases from one point to another, often under a great deal of pressure. For instance, in industrial settings, peristaltic reciprocating pumps move chemicals without the threat of cross-contamination. Anywhere that precise amounts of fluids need to be moved from one point to another, you’ll find a metering pump. Reciprocating pumps are used in oil drilling, sewer line cleaning, firefighting systems, pneumatic pressure applications, and more. 

    Why buy a used reciprocating pump? 

    Reciprocating pumps of all shapes and sizes are used in the production and processing of many products and consumables. Reciprocating pumps are common in many different industries and that means these pumps are abundant. It’s easy to find a used reciprocating pump that suits your needs in perfect working order. Purchasing a used pump for sale can save your business money and protect your bottom line. Outfitting any plant can be an expensive undertaking, so consider used reciprocating pumps to stay on budget without sacrificing quality or functionality. 

    What should I look for in a used reciprocating pump? 

    Used pumps come at a lower price point than brand new machines, but purchasing used doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice quality. Before you choose your pump, ask if the plungers, rollers, and seals are in good working order. Double-check the tubing size and make sure it will suit the application you intend to use it for. Familiarize yourself with the flow rate you need, what pressure requirements there are, as well as operating temperature, outlet diameter, and power rating. Each of these factors will affect what the pump can transport.
