Disc Pump™ micropump manufacturer TTP Ventus has launched its latest product line, the LT Series, to be used in the medical, life science, environmental and industrial sectors. The LT Series micropumps offer 5,000 hours’ continuous operation across wide temperature range.

Micropumps are devices that can control and manipulate small fluid volumes. Such pumps are of special interest in microfluidic research, and have become available for industrial product integration in recent years.

TTP Ventus’ Disc Pump platform is a silent micropump platform that delivers exceptional pressure and flow, millisecond-response time, precision controllability and pulsation-free flow. These features enable product designers to drive innovation, for example through the creation of discrete, wearable medical devices or through the miniaturization of measurement equipment. The LT Series is a new addition to the line-up, providing in excess of 5,000 hours’ continuous operation across a wide temperature range of -25 to +40°C, reports Business Wire.

“The LT series marks a significant step forward in the lifetime capacity of our technology. The first two models in the series extend the envelope over previous designs, allowing us to support 6 months’ continuous operation. It is remarkable to consider that over this time, cycling 20,000 times per second, the pump will clock up more than 20 cycles for every year the universe has existed,” said Tom Harrison, Business Development Manager, TTP Ventus.

“We are committed to pushing the capability of our designs and are developing models offering further improvements to performance and life. We have a series of products planned for release over the course of the next year, ultimately targeting a pump rated to 10,000 hours in 2020.”
