Pressure genrated at maximum flow rate of Peristaltic Pump

by shreyasnrs on Fri Jul 24, 2020 6:08 am

Dear Adafruit Team,
I am writing to you to enquire about the maximum pressure that the peristaltic pump can generate at a maximum flow rate
We planned to use the small plastic Solenoid Valve along with the Peristaltic pump in our setup. Since the solenoid valve requires a minimum pressure to actuate, I would like to know the pressure that can be generated by the Peristaltic pump.

The Link to the products mentioned above are:
Solenoid Valve - https://www.adafruit.com/product/997 
Peristaltic Pump - https://www.adafruit.com/product/1150 

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

We don't have any specs for the maximum pressure from the peristaltic pump, and it depends heavily on the mechanical properties of the silicone tubing. It can easily generate enough pressure to work with the solenoid valve though.

The maximum rate of flow is about 100mL per minute.
