CHICAGO, May 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ICAP Patent Brokerage announces for sale a bearing-free, seal-free fluid pump from Advanced Bionics, Inc. This IP package will be included in the upcoming sealed bid event taking place on September 26, 2013. Bids for this lot will be accepted starting September 24 through September 26.
"We are excited to offer this patented fluid pump solution to our global base of buyers. This portfolio is highly relevant to specialty pump manufacturers wishing to create product lines with low manufacturing costs, and provide long-term reliability and maintenance-free operation to end users," says Dean Becker, CEO of ICAP Patent Brokerage.
Key Characteristics & Benefits
The portfolio for sale includes a bearing-free, seal-free pump that has minimal shear forces impact and decreased heat generation for long-term, maintenance-free operation. In detail, the impeller or rotor is passively suspended without bearings and permits relatively large clearances between the rotating and stationary elements of the pump. Due to the elimination of bearings, generated heat and shear forces are greatly diminished. This increases operational life-span to the point that many pumps may have virtually unlimited, maintenance-free life spans.
This technology is highly relevant to companies creating pumps for fluids susceptible to damage when exposed to shear forces or temperature changes. This pumping innovation is also suitable for fluids aggressive or corrosive toward materials commonly employed in pump seals. Further, this improved fluid pump can function properly with little to no maintenance, making it ideal for situations where maintenance is difficult or impossible.
Applications include a variety of medical pumps, including those for the extracorporeal, implantable, and dialysis markets. Other applications involve space and aerospace electronics cooling systems, such as those for spacecraft and satellites, as well as computer cooling systems.
