Default Micro pump design / Diaphragm pump
Posts: n/a
I am designing a diaphragm type micro pump (50x20x20 mm). I am having a hard time trying to forecast the performance of the pump before prototyping. Has any one done any sort of work in this area before? The pump operates at relatively high speeds (7000rpm). I have a few items that I need to solve before prototyping. They are dynamic balancing, valve design optimisation and performance calculation. There are no standard formulas or packages that can solve these problems for me. Can any one help?

We have done quite a bit of work on micropumps of various types. I would encourage you to look at our web site <>, especially in the biomedical area to see some of the designs we've worked with in the past.

We can either team with you to look at and improve your pump design, or supply you with the tools you would need to do it yourself.

If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact me via e-mail or by phone (256)726-4919

Regards, Alton
