The MP-6 micropump is extremely small in size, measuring 30 mm X 15 mm X 3.8 mm. With a low power consumption of less than 200 mW, the MP-6 is ideal for portable applications. Typical flow values are 18 ml/min maximum flow with 100 mbar backpressure for gas and 7 ml/min flow and 600 mbar backpressure for water. Various flow rates for other liquids are easily determined by readily available viscosity values. The MP-6 is self-priming. Unlike other solutions, the MP-6 is an off-the-shelf micropump allowing users to quickly evaluate and integrate into their design. Custom modifications can be made based on customer requirements. A polypropylene version (MP-6-PP) is available for corrosive media. Sterilization is generally acceptable. Various evaluation kits are available for purchase, which include sample pumps, controller boards, tubing and check valves depending on the users’ requirements. Applications reach across many industries for the MP-6 micropump. In medical applications, drug delivery, infusion pumps, nebulizers, point-of-care platforms, cell culturing, and breath applications have needs to deliver small amounts of gas or liquids.
