United States Patent De Vries [54] PERISTALTIC PUMP CONSTRUCTION [72] Inventor: James H. De Vries, Ann Arbor,

628,785 9/1949 Great Britain .....4l7/47 7 [151 3,700,361 I451 Oct. 24, 1972 Primary Examiner-William L. Freeh Assistant Examiner-John T.

7 Claims, 3 Drawing Figures PERISTALTIC PUMP CONSTRUCTION This invention relates to a Peristaltic Pump Construction and more particularly to a drive and control system for such a pump. Reference is made to the following U. S. patents which are illustrative of the prior art: U.S. Pat. No. 419,461 Jan. 14, 1890 to Lee; U.S. Pat. No. 473,546 Apr. 26, 1892 to Carroll; U.S. Pat. No. 2,035,159 Mar. 24, 1936 to Henry.

It is an object of the present invention to provide an improved and simplified drive device for a pump which is normally motor-operated but which can be manually disconnected from the power drive and operated by a retractable handle crank, and an improved control for maintaining pressure on the pump rollers.

It is an object of the present invention to providea simple pump construction which permits rapid and easy dismantling of the pump for the purpose of'repair or cleaning by persons who are not mechanically trained; and it is also an object to provide a pump which can have a closely controlled pressure system manipulated by the operator.

Other objects and features of the invention relating to details of construction, including a simplified head design, will be apparent in the following description and claims in which the principles of the invention and the operation are set forth in connection with the best mode presently contemplated for the practice of the invention.

Drawings accompany the disclosure and the various views thereof may be briefly described as:

FIG. 1, a top view of a pump assembly.

FIG. 2, a sectional view on line 2-2 of FIG. 1. FIG. 3, a sectional view on line 3--3 of FIG. 1.

The peristaltic pump principle is known and em-,

bodies a pump construction in which a circular wall serves as a pressure wall for a tube extending around the wall and a rotor with pressure rollers rotates within that wall causing the rollers to revolve in proximity to the wall toprovide circumferentially progressing pressure around the tube to effect a pumping action.

In FIG. 1, a pump housing is shown generally at 10 having an inner circular wall 12 which terminates at walls 14 and 16 at side openings 18 and 20. The forward wall of the housing at 22 completes the enclosure although this portion of the wall does not function in connection with the pumping action.

The housing 10 has a bottom wall 24 through which projects a rotor shaft 26 located centrally of a flat raised boss 28. The shaft 26 projects downwardly through a mounting hub 27 (FIG. 3) on the basic hous-' ing 10 and is suitably mounted in bearings 29 in this hub. The rotor or pump head in FIG. 1 comprises a hub portion 30 mounted on shaft 26, the hub being retained by a O-ring 32 which fits in a groove in the shaft above the head. A sleeve bearing 34 having flanged ends 36 is provided as a mount for the rotor hub as shown in FIG. 3.

The head has opposed, radially extending arms 38 and 40, each of which branches into circumferentially extending wing portions 42. The distal end of the arms 38 and 40 is apertured to receive a roller pin to be later described to mount rollers 48 and 50. The wings 42 each carry a pair of axially spaced radially extending guide rollers 52 mounted on suitable pins 54.

The details of the mount of the rollers 48 are shown in FIG. 3. Here it will be seen that the radial arms 38 at the distal end have recesses 60 which leave two spaced parallel mounting plates, the bottom plates being apertured to receive one end 62 of a mounting pin 64. The other end 66 of the mounting pin, which is co-axial and concentric with the end 62, is mounted in a control button 68 having a portion 70 which is rotatably mounted in an opening in the top plate of the radial arm 38. A screw 72 acting in a groove in the portion 70 retains this control button which has an axially extending cross-knob portion 74. A small detent 76 in top plate above recess 60 has an end which is received in openings in the bottom surface of a flange 78 on the button 68 to locate the button in any particular rotated position.

It will be seen that the pin 64 is larger than and eccentric to the mounting extensions 62 and 66, and on this enlarged portion are mounted the rollers 48 on suitable bearings 80. A pin 82 transfixes the portion 66 and the portion 70 so that the button can rotate the pin 64 to various positions of eccentricity, thus varying the radial position of the rollers 48 and controlling the dimension A between the wall 12 and the rollers.

As illustrated in FIG. I, the hub 30 also has a radial bifurcate extension 84 at to the arms 38 and 40. This bifurcate extension pivotally mounts an arm 86 on a pivot pin 88 so that the portion of the arm adjacent the pivot can move inlthe slot of the extension 84. The arm is formed in an open U-shape so that when positioned in the full line position of FIG. 2 a portion 90 lies in a diametrical groove through the top end of the shaft 26.

The distal end 92 of the arm 86 has fastened on it a knob 94 which ordinarily recesses into the space between the wing portions 42 of the rotor. When moved to the dotted line position of FIG. 2 wherein the root portion of the arm 86 is pivoted downwardly to contact a stop pin 96, the arm can be used as a crank for rotating the rotor independently of the shaft 26. When the arm is in the full line position, it creates a drive as previously indicated between the rotor and the power shaft 26.

It will be noted that the basic pump head, including hub 30, arms 38 and 40, bifurcate extension 84, and wings 42, is a one-piece integral construction so designed that it can be and is formed as an extruded piece, the extrusion being cut off to the proper axial length and recessed suitably for the rollers. Thus, the head can be formed with a minimum of machining and yet be an accurate and attractive piece.

At the bottom corners of the housing 10 as shown in FIG. 1, there are two comer plates held in place by releasable screws 102, these plates engaging a tube 104 at both sides of the unit in a conventional manner. Accordingly, it will be seen that the rotors 48 can be adjusted properly for a particular application by determining the proper dimension A and setting the buttons 68. The device then can be manually rotated for mitting a nurse or technician to clean the device or apply a substitute rotor. When the handle is in the power drive position, it will retain the O-ring in place and also provide the necessary mechanical engagement.
