TTP Ventus introduces new high-performance micropumps for medical and life science markets

TTP Ventus HP Series

TTP Ventus Ltd, a manufacturer of high-performance, silent micropumps for medical and life science markets, has announced the introduction of a range of new pumps that extend performance, delivering higher flow rates, higher pressures, and longer lifetimes.

This opens up new product innovation possibilities for applications including microfluidics research, medical diagnostics, therapeutic devices and wearables.

Among the pumps to be displayed at COMPAMED, the new HP Series has been designed for applications requiring high pressure, with the first model delivering in excess of 800 mBar, doubling what was available with previous models. The ability to generate such high pressures from a small, controllable, and non-pulsatile pump opens up exciting opportunities in microfluidics, particularly in so-called pressure-driven-flow or air-over-liquid systems. By moving the pump close to where the pressure or vacuum is needed, system complexity and size can be reduced significantly.

The new LT Series was developed for applications requiring long lifetimes, typically 5,000 hours or more. These models offer increased pneumatic performance combined with long lifetime. TTP Ventus plans to extend pump lifetime even further in the near future, and expects to announce its first 10,000-hour pump in 2020.

In addition to these offerings, TTP Ventus has extended its BL and XP Series with four additional pumps. These provide increased flow rates of up to 2.1 litres per minute, enabling faster inflation with blood pressure cuffs or therapeutic cushions for example. The new pumps maintain the small size and silent operation of existing models, enabling discrete, wearable products which were not previously possible. Their increased efficiency is valuable for battery-powered products, while precise controllability means that components such as proportional valves can be made redundant.

Tom Harrison, Business Development Manager, TTP Ventus, commented: “We've listened to the needs of our customers and developed improved pump designs that meet their requirements. We're excited to welcome visitors to our stand at COMPAMED to learn more about these new designs.”

The HP and LT Series’ will be on display alongside new pumps in the BL and XP Series’ at COMPAMED 2019, 18th–21st November, in Düsseldorf, Germany (Hall 8a, stand F35.3).

About TTP Ventus

TTP Ventus manufactures the Disc Pump range of award-winning micropumps, which are enabling innovation across sectors from medical and life sciences, to environmental and defence. The pumps deliver high pressure and flow, silent operation, rapid response time, accuracy, infinite turn-down ratio and ultra-smooth flow – all in a tiny package, to support product innovations through wearability, portability, and simplicity.

Disc Pumps excite a high-frequency acoustic standing wave in a fixed-volume cavity. A patented ultra-fast valve technology rectifies this standing wave to deliver pumped flow. The platform has been recognised with awards including the Institute of Physics’ Business Innovation Award and Business Weekly’s Disruptive Technology Award.

Formed in 2016, as a spin-out from The Technology Partnership (TTP Plc), TTP Ventus is based in Cambridge, UK and is focused on the manufacture and supply of the Disc Pump range.
