'PIC Project - need pcb mountable air pump..'
Mark D Doble
Hi Pic List,
I am searching for a circuit board mountable air pump that can
generate up to 2psi (~25kPa). I need to evacuate a 3/16" tube that is
in 13" of water which would require ~10KPa of pressure.
I have checked everywhere for this pump...I know there must be a
good source because of all of the small blood pressure monitor devices
on the market use a small air pump to inflate the cuff.
I have perused the thomas register, newark, hallmark, digikey,
etc....does anyone know a manufacturer of these type of pumps.
My device is measuring the volume of water in a 13inch high
container. Currently I am using a fish tank pump...but I want to be
able to integrate the pump in my enclosure and control the pump with a
simple transistor switch.
Thanks for any assistance....

I got a nice catalog from a US company which deals with lots of optical
components, motors, pumps, etc. My catalogue is one year old but have been
looking to the pumps and they have some to choose. I'm afraid that all of
them are designed to work with water rather than air. Don't know if they
will work with air too, but just call and ask them.
Company is: Edmund Scientific

Ask for the pumps reference: ES50,345
All them are different. Hope it helps. Anyway ask for the catalogue, is a
very nice tool.

You can find 6 volt battery powered fish tank pumps in pet shops. If you
take the pump out of its enclosure, wich is 90% battery space, you get a
really small pump, about 1.25" x .75". If its a one piece project or very
low quantity you can cut out the plastic part of the pump thats integrated
to the enclosure on cheap pumps.
