Smarter Ink Pumps - Coming Soon!
Our Newest Innovation In Peristaltic Pumps Features Digital Controls
The Smarter Ink Pump Family, introduced in 2019, is our newest innovation in Peristaltic Pumps. Smarter pumps have a new physical appearance and smaller footprint than previous Graymills models and can be mounted vertically or horizontally and easily adjusted in the field. They feature Graymills proven quick-disconnect removable head technology, which allows the pump head/tube changes to be accomplished in seconds without tools.
Four distinguishing features of the new pumps are:
- A display that indicates rotational speed, hose life and reverse timer
- A predictive hose failure monitor with an adjustable life setpoint
- One button reverse drain shutdown sequence with an adjustable timer
- Remote analog control with available digital connectivity
Unlike conventional peristaltic pumps adapted from other industries, all Graymills peristaltic or “tube” pumps are engineered specifically for flexo and gravure printing applications and can easily accommodate a wide variety of fluids from inks and coatings to adhesives including water-based, solvent and UV/EB.
The steel pump housing, which protects the pump against splashing and damage, has a baked on hybrid powder coating for a long lasting durable finish. Three swivel lock fasteners quickly release the pump head cover, without tools or loose parts, facilitating a quick tube change. The Graymills head design allows the tube to run “straight-thru” from the bucket to the print deck, eliminating “pinch points” where kinks form that slow the flow and weaken the tube. Dual roller technology combines just two rollers with a longer compression cycle to provide greater flow with fewer rotations. This results in lower friction, reduced tube fatigue and less flow pulsation.
