InnoPump project

Innovative Integral-Assisted Design to a new Generation of Dosing Minipumps

  • Period:  from 1st January 2012 to 31st December 2012
  • Spanish competitive reference: DPI2011-27938
  • Coordinator: IAFARG
  • Companies: AMES and INFRANOR MAVILOR

Description

The main aspects of this project are:

  • To generate the necessary critical knowledge mass to carry out an innovative investigation in a new generation of mini trochoidal-gear pumps and to fill the present lack of investigation
  • To maximize the efficiency of mini trochoidal-gear pump based on maintaining its main advantages (compact, few components and no sealing elements), to increase its main strength (high ratio power/minimum volume-weight ) and to optimize its main performance indexes (flow ripple and wear that bring to volumetric efficiency fluctuations)
  • To develop a new tool based on an integrated system to design mini trochoidal-gear pumps, on one hand, to lead the designer to a better design of new born component project from its initial specifications, and on the other hand, to reduce the cost and shorten the time of manufacturing changing the current design method by trial and error
  • To improve the technology transfer to the companies.
