Our micropump platform, Disc Pump, was created by Cambridge technology company The Technology Partnership (TTP). At that time Casio required a high-performance, silent pump to enable a micro fuel cell product targeting the business travel market. In response TTP created Disc Pump: an entirely new pump technology based on ultrasonic resonance.
The pump’s unique features derive from its operating principle. Disc Pump excites a standing ultrasonic pressure wave within a disc-shaped cavity, and our patented ultra-fast valve technology rectifies this wave to deliver pumped flow. The technology platform was recognised by the Institute of Physics, winning its inaugural Business Innovation Award in 2012, and is protected by a portfolio of granted patents covering all of the major world economies.
Our second-generation pump has delivered performance and efficiency improvements. Key features of this pump design are:
