    Default Doser Maxi Slave as a peristaltic pump feeding NO3 filter? - best solution?

    Hello everyone.

    I jump right in.

    I have a maxi doser that feeds my nitrate reactors (2 filters) with water. As for now I use the switch settings so that each motor starts and stops after a specific timer.

    For example pump 1: starts after 7 seconds and stops after 3 seconds. - It works at full speed.

    My question is easy. Would it be better for the pump if it worked longer periods but with less speed?

    For example: Continuous work on a lower setting/half speed.

    What wears most on the pump?

    Best regards

    Andre.

    Hello Andre,

    The slower speeds would be more suitable for extended run-times as it puts less wear on the moving parts.
