Membrane Pump System

(2013) WO2011045167
Abstract
The present invention relates to a membrane pump and an apparatus comprising such a membrane pump. The membrane pump comprises a pumping chamber and a flexible member separating the pumping chamber into a first accumulation container and a second accumulation container. The flexible member is configured to be movable within the pumping chamber so as to vary a volume relationship between the first and second accumulation container. The second accumulation container is configured to receive an amount of working fluid to act on the flexible member and thus, in use, pump a first fluid from the first accumulation container. The first and the second accumulation container, each has an inlet opening for inlet of the respective fluid and an outlet... (More)

The first and the second accumulation container, each has an inlet opening for inlet of the respective fluid and an outlet opening for outlet of the respective fluid, the inlet opening being arranged on one side of the accumulation container and the outlet opening being arranged on the opposite side of the accumulation container. The flexible member is configured to show, when arranged in the pumping chamber and seen in a cross section along a plane extending through a pair of the inlet and outlet openings of the accumulation container, a thickness that is increased in a downstream direction.
