Abstract
Peristaltic Mixing Pump Based on Bowel Peristalsis Using Pneumatic Artificial Rubber Muscles and Prospects for Practical Applications

Peristaltic mixing pump based on intestine

This letter proposes a peristaltic mixing pump based on bowel peristaltic motion driven by soft pneumatic actuators. Furthermore, various practical applications using the peristaltic mixing pump are introduced, such as mixing and conveying processes for solid rocket fuel production and lifting conveyance of excavated soil and sand during the construction process. First, the bowel peristaltic motion mechanism is introduced from the anatomical perspective. Next, the construction of the peristaltic mixing pump and its actuation mechanism are presented. Finally, the application and prospects of peristaltic mixing pumps are described.
