Description: Hand Made Peristaltic Pump is a product developed through the research project of Asst. Prof. Dr. Weerachai Phutdhawongs group from the funding of Thailand Research Foundation. The aim is to adapt this pump coupled with the automated reactor using computer controller into the flow system of microwave assisted organic synthesis.

The electronic circuit, mechanical system, microcontroller and software were employed by the graduate students to create and assemble the pump in our lab.

I am wondering if this pump

I am wondering if this pump has a variable speed feature that responds to the action going on in the reactor or if it proceeds at a given rate? If it responds to what is happening in the reactor; what parameter(s) is measured (and how) in order to affect the speed appropriately?

Good looking job by the way!

It's is certainly very

It's is certainly very satisfying to be able to develop a peristaltic pump on your own. But wouldn't it be more time and cost-efficient to work with existing peristaltic pump models, that usually also offer analog or digital control possiblities (or both)?
How do you control the pump and what is the approximate flow rate range?
