This is a great little pump! It’s positive displacement and self priming. The best part is, it’s reversible!
In the vid, we use this pump to actuate a syringe plunger back and forth.
Out of the box it’ll provide 1.3 Bar of pressure (19 PSI for our American friends). We used hook-up wire to clamp the tiny tubes and got it up to 1.8 Bar (26 PSI). On a 1″ diameter syringe (a big one) that’s enough pressure to lift nearly 10 kg!!!!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
