TTP Ventus, manufacturer of the Disc Pump range of micropumps, has introduced its new UltraSlim Series product line, with a design that is half the thickness of previous models.
The first design in the series is only 5.8 mm thick and includes an integrated filter and axial airflow path through the pump. These changes reduce the space required when integrating the pump within products, enabling designers to create smaller, more tightly integrated systems.
The company says the UltraSlim models deliver exceptional pressure and flow, silent operation, millisecond-response time, precision controllability and pulsation-free flow.
Tom Harrison, chief commercial officer, TTP Ventus, commented: “we’re seeing a growing demand for compact pump solutions—particularly from the medical and life science sectors, with the trend to make products smaller, quieter and less intrusive.” He added that the new designs route airflow through the pump in a new way, while the integrated filter reduces the number of additional components required.
The new design is intended for manufacturers of wearable products, such as blood pressure measurement products and compression therapy devices.
