Shuttle Pump

This Shuttle Pump is based on a patented dual-channel shuttle pump mechanism that can deliver flow rates up to 50 ml/min, but is small and incredibly power efficient. This unique pump was designed for cell culture experiments conducted on the Space Shuttle, where weight and power consumption are significant constraints.

This Shuttle Pump is based on a patented dual-channel shuttle pump mechanism that can deliver flow rates up to 50 ml/min, but is small and incredibly power efficient. This unique pump was designed for cell culture experiments conducted on the Space Shuttle, where weight and power consumption are significant constraints.
Efficient Design
This fluid pump uses two easily removable pumping chambers on either side of an oscillating shuttle. The balanced tube arrangement, high-efficiency motor, and 4 passive check valves result in a pump that is far more efficient than a typical peristaltic pump: 13 times higher flow rates with 60% lower weight and 90% lower power consumption.
Gentle Pumping Action
The oscillating shuttle does not squeeze the tubes to occlusion, making this device ideal for pumping cell suspensions and blood. Fluid can free flow through the pump in the forward direction, simplifying filling and purging, but limiting applications to those where outflow pressure is greater than inflow pressure. Single or dual channel operation. Join the two tubes to form a single input and output and thereby generate twice the flow rate with less pulsation.
Built-In Control Circuitry
Adjust the motor speed over a 20:1 range using the knob on the top of the pump.
The pump mechanism is also available for OEM applications.
