Selecting Small, Precise Pumps

Sponsored by The Lee Company

In the industrial world, engineers don’t need to know much more than a pressure and flow rate to properly size a pump. But specifications for miniature positive-displacement pumps destined for medical diagnos­tic and therapy devices and analytical chemical equipment – applications with small, precise flow rates and pressures – can be more demanding. In many cases, such applications use pumps to aspirate, i.e., suck or pull in fluids from a reservoir, and then dispense them, i.e.; push out or release fluids. In some cases a single pump handles both tasks.

What types of pumps are available for these applications? What is a pump’s resolution? How are a pump’s accuracy and repeatability expressed? Do pumps vary in how fast they can dispense fluids?
