Tittle:
Individual adjustment of vacuum level for a peristaltic pump system
Summary:
This Austrian company is world-wide leading producer of baby articles. They search for a solution to adjust the vacuum level of a peristaltic pump between 13 and 27 mbar. It is used in a new electric pump for breast milk. The system shall contain only polypropylene and silicone parts.
They are open for technical, research, commercial or licensing cooperation agreement.
Description:
An Austrian company is a world-wide leading producer of baby articles with more than 70 million products sold annually in about 60 countries.
They are currently developing a new electric breast pump for mother´s milk. To start the pumping process, a vacuum inside the funnel is generated by a peristaltic pump. However, due to this at a certain point during usage, the pump reaches undesired vacuum levels which are not suitable for the intended use. Additionally, the maximum bearable/desired vacuum level might differ from woman to woman. The company needs a solution that makes an individual adjustment of the vacuum level possible.
At the current stage of product development, a sealed system has been integrated, which automatically increases the vacuum level.
To solve this problem, they are looking for
- a valve that creates a defined leak in the system or
- any other solution,
which adjusts the vacuum level at the desired values.
They are primarily interested in collaborating with a company with a ready-to-use solution through a commercial or licensing agreement. However, the possibility of a joint technical development or if necessary a common research cooperation are also considered if no solution is available yet.
Technical Specification or Expertise Sought:
- All parts touching the fluid should be food contact proven.
- They prefer to use only polypropylene and silicone parts.
- The individual adjustable vacuum level shall be between 13.3 and 26.6 mbar (=100-200 mmHg).

Partner sought

Type and Role of Partner Sought:
- Type of partner sought: Industry and research partners.

- Specific area of activity of the partner: mainly engineering companies dealing with pumps and valves for home-use products or any other company with experience in adjusting vacuum levels.

- Task to be performed:
a) License/commercial agreement with technical assistance: adaptation and adoption of an existing technology with an industrial partner (preferred).
b) Technical cooperation: engineering service to develop the solution with the specifications needed.
c) Research cooperation: joint development of the technological solution sought (from conceptualization to production).
