Abstract

The peristaltic pumps are used in the pharmacy and medical industries. They have good flow rate control and also there is no direct contact between the fluid flowing and the atmosphere. The tubes for peristaltic pump are suggested by the tube manufacturer and tubes are changed after the defined time. In existing design of pump which is manufactured by sponsoring industry, the tube gets worn out before the life span claimed by the tube manufacturer. Also if the occlusion ratio is not appropriate the discharge will not be satisfactory. Thus to make the design safe, many a times the motor is selected for higher rating and the tube thickness and the occlusion ratio are kept high. As a result the whole structure becomes bulky. This paper tries to give an idea about the previous researches and their finding about Design, analysis and verification of performance of the peristaltic Pump.
