l ATTORVEYS United States Patent O 3,165,447 PUMP CNSTRUCTION Robert Gene Ruppert, Box 49, Granville, lll. Filed Aug. 28, 1961, Ser. No. 134,321 11 Claims. (Cl. 10S-149) This invention relates to improvements in pumps and more particularly relates to an improved form of pump of the type wherein liquid is propelled through an elastic tube by progressively compressing the tube from one end to the other.

Heretofore, pumps operating on the principle of progressively compressing a tube to propel liquid along the tube have necessarily been small capacity pumps, driven at slow operating speeds to avoid excessive heating of the tube, with a resultant and shortened life thereof. It further has been necessary to use a relatively thick walled elastic tube to provide the high suction and discharge v pressures required to eiiiciently pump the liquid, and the tube frequently ruptures, due to the continued progressive compression thereof.

A principal object of my invention is to remedy the foregoing disadvantage by providing a simplified form of lubricating system for a progressively compressed tube, lubricating the tube and maintaining the tube cool.

A furhter object of the invention is to provide an improved form of pump wherein liquid is passed through a tube under pressure from the inlet to the outlet end of the tube by progressively compressing the tube, in which the tube is subjected to vacuum to return the tube to its tubular shape after compression thereof, and in which vacuum is attained by the suction at the inlet end of the tube, drawing liquid into and along the tube.

Still another object of the invention is to provide an improved form of pump in which liquid is passed along a tube from the inlet to the outlet end thereof by progressively compressing the tube from its inlet towards its outlet end, and in which the tube is surrounded by a concentric tube spaced therefrom and pumping lubricant in the space between the tubes by compression of the tubes.

A still further object of the invention is to provide an improved form of pump of the elastic tube type in which liquid is passed along a tube by progressively compressing the tube from the inlet to the outlet end thereof, in which the capacity of the pump is increased and the power to drive the pump is reduced by lubricating and cooling the tube and returning the tube to its tubular form by vacuum after compression thereof, and thereby making it possible to use a tube of minimum wall thickness.

A further object of the invention is to provide an improved form of pump of the elastic tube type in which at least two concentric elastic tubes are utilized to pump liquid from the inlet to the outlet end of the pump by progressively compressing the tubes, and in which coinpression of the outer tube draws lubricant in the space between the tubes and compression of the inner tube draws liquid through the tube and supplies the vacuum to place the outer surfaces of the tubes under vacuum.

These and other objects of the invention will appear from time to time as the following specification proceeds and with reference to the accompanying drawings where- FIGURE l is a end View of a pump constructed in accordance with the invention with the end cover of the pump removed and the inlet portion of the pump shown in vertical section;

FIGURE 2 is a transverse sectional view taken through the pump shown in FIGURE l, showing the rotor progressively compressing the collapsible tubes;

FIGURE 3 is an enlarged sectional view of the inlet lCe end of the pump illustrating the seal for the inlet ends of the concentric tubes;

FIGURE 4 is a sectional view showing a modied form of sealing arrangement in which the inside tube can be pulled through the pump to expose a new section of tubing after use of the pump; and

FIGURE 5 is a cross sectional View taken through a modilied form of concentric tubing, showing the inner tube grooved along its outside.

In the embodiment of the invention illustrated in the drawings, I have shown in FIGURES l and 2, a pump housing 1) having a generally cylindrical inner wall 11 and having an inlet boss 12 at one side of said housing and an outlet boss 13 at the opposite side of said housing. The pump housing is closed by a detachable end cover 15 sealed to the end of said housing in a suitable manner (not shown), to maintain the interior of said housing air tight and thereby enable the interior of said housing to be placed under vacuum.

The housing lil has a boss 16 extending from one end thereof having a bearing 17 carried therein, forming a bearing for a drive shaft 18 for a pump rotor 19. The pump rotor 19 has a hub 20 keyed or otherwise secured to the drive shaft 1S, and retained to said drive shaft as by a set screw 21. The drive shaft 13 may be driven from a suitable motor (not shown) in a conventional manner. Sealing means (not shown) may be provided between the shaft 1S and the bearing 17 and between the bearing 17 and the hub 16, to enable the interior of the housing to be placed under vacuum.

The rotor 19 has an inner face 22 having three bearing support pins 23 threaded therein and suitably secured thereto, and forming bearing support means for compression rollers 24, progressively compressing two concentric inner and outer tubes 25 and 26 respectively, during rotation of said rotor and creating suction in said tubes to pass liquid therealong. The bearing for the roller may be lubricated by lubricant contained in the bottom of the housing lil, by the splash system.

The tubes 25 and 26 may both be relatively thin-walled tubes made from an elastic material, such as rubber, an elastomer or one of the well known substitutes for rubber.

The inner tube 25 is shown as having an inlet end portion 27 stretched backwardly over the inlet end of a flanged adapter 29. The hanged portion of the flanged adapter 29 abuts the outer end of the inlet boss 12 and is sealed thereto as by an annular sealing member 39. The outer tube 26 is shown as being stretched about a depending sleeve portion 31 of the flanged adapter 29. An inlet pipe 32 leads through the wall of the adapter 219 upstream of the hanged portion thereof in communication with the space between said adapter and the outside of the inner tube 25, to accommodate lubricant to be pumped into the space between the tubes 25 and 2e by progressive compression of the two tubes, and to enable the outer periphery of the inner tube 25 to be placed under sullicient vacuum to return said inner tube to its tubular form after compression thereof.

The tubes 25 and 26 extend along the cylindrical wall 11 of the housing 10, and upwardly through the outlet or discharge boss 13, and are sealed to a anged adapter 35, mounted on the outlet boss 13 in the same manner they are sealed to the inlet boss 12. A return pipe 33 leads from the .adapter 35 to a lubricant storage reservoir 36 to return lubricant thereto.

Thus, as the pump rotor 20 is rotatably driven and the tube 27 is connected to a source of liquid, the three rollers 24 will progressively compress the respective inner and outer tubes 25 and 26 and draw liquid into the inner tube and lubricant into the space between the two tubes, and discharge the liquid through the outlet end of the inner 3 tube and return the lubricant to the storage reservoir 3ey through the lubricant return pipe 33.

A means is provided to create vacuum in the interior of the housing 11 to tend to return the tube 26 to its tubular form as it has been compressed and to create vacuum in the storage reservoir 36 in the space above the lubricant therein to place the same amount of vacuum in the space between the concentric tubes that is on the suction end `of the pump, to thereby increase the elastic ability of the two tubes to overcome the suction lift of the pump and increase the lifting ability of the pump.

As shown in FIGURE 2, a suction connector 37 is placed over a bacliwardly turned inlet end 27 of the inner tube 25 and is suitably secured thereto. The connector 37 has a suction line 39 leading thereinto from the inside of the storage reservoir 35 above the level of lubricant therein. A check valve itl is provided in the suction line 39. A second tube 4I leads from the inside of the housing 1l and is connected to the tube 39 upstream of the check valve 4&1.

The suction created by progressively compressing the tube 25 to draw in liquid through the suction connector 37 and inlet end 27 of the tube 25 will, therefore, draw air from the inside of the housing lll and maintain the inside of said housing under vacuum, and will also draw air from the inside of the reservoir 35 and maintain said reservoir and the return pipe 33 under vacuum. The return pipe 33 being under suction, therefore provides suction in the space between the tubes 25 and 26 in addition to that required to draw lubricant through the lubricant and coolant inlet 32.

It should here be understood that the lubricant in the space between the tubes 25' and 26 may be of a type which is also a coolant and that the reservoir 36 may serve to cool the lubricant. In `addition the lubricant may be kcooled by a heat exchanger (not shown) where desirable or necessary. rIihe reservoir 36 may be omitted under conditions where the lubricant affords ample cooling of the tubes. In cases where the reservoir 36 is omitted the lubricant suction tube can be connected to a low point in the pump chamber, and the lubricant discharge tube can lead into the pump chamber from the top thereof.

It should further be understood that since the coolant and lubricant does not come into contact with the pump bearings, rollers, etc., it is possible to use a large range of lubricants and coolants without danger of damaging the pump bearings.

It should still further be understood that with the concentric tubes herein shown, the pump is particularly adapted for pumping corrosive or hazardous fluids and that in cases where the inside tube may rupture, while the uid may contaminate the lubricant and coolant, it will not contaminate the other parts of the pump. Also, if the outside tube should fail before the inside tube, the coolant will only escape into the pump body, which conditions can readily be detected.

It should still further be understood that by utilizing concentric tubes, the inside tube transferring the liquid pumped, may readily be cleaned, and contamination of the liquid being pumped is avoided as long as the lubricant or coolant in the space between the tubes 25 and 26 is of a type which is not harmful to the uid pumped in case the inside tube should rupture.

In FIGURE 3, I have shown a modified form of a seal in which a flanged sleeve 45 abuts an annular seal 496 extending along the top of the `inlet boss 12. The flanged sleeve 45 has the outer tube 26 extending therealong and turned backwardly over the end of the sleeve along the outer periphery thereof.

A flanged adapter 47 has an annular inner surface 43 generally conforming to the form of the backwardly turned portion of the tube 26 and pressed into engagement lwith said backwardly turned portion, .as by machine screws 49. The ltube 25 is turned over a sleeve portion i 47a of the yadapter 47 as in the form of the invention shown in FIGURE l.

With this form of the invention, a more positive seal is provided for the end of the outer tube 26. A lubricant or coolant pipe 50' enters the adapter to admit lubricant in the space between the tubes 2S and 26.

In the modified form of seal shown in FIGURE 4, I have shown a sealing arrangement accommodating the inner tube 25 to be pulled through the outer tube 26 to expose a new section of tubing to the action of the rollers 24 as the tube becomes worn and to thereby increase the life of the inner tube and avoid the possibilities of leakage thereof.

In this form of seal, the'outer tube 26 is sealed to individual adapters 29 at its inlet and its outlet `ends in the same manner as in FIGURES l and 2. The individual 1adapters 29 for the inlet and outlet ends of the housing are the sarne, so one only need herein be shown and described in detail. The adapter 29 has a sealing sleeve 5l stretched about the sleeve portion thereof and stretched into sealing engagement 'with the outer su-rface of the inner tube 25 and accommodating the inner tube 25 to be slipped along the sealing lsleeve 51, and also sealing said tube to said sleeve by the resiliency of said sealing sleeve and the vacuum developed in the space between the tubes 25 and 26.

While I have herein shown the inner tube as being lmovable along the cylindrical wall 1l to expose a new section to the action of the rollers 24 as the tube becomes worn it should be understood that the outer tube 26 may also be adjustably movable if desired.

In FIGURE 5, I have shown a modified form of concentric tube arrangement which ymay be used in place of the tubes 25 and 26. In this form of tub-e arrangement an inner tube 53 is provided, which has grooves 54 extending along the periphery thereof, the ridges separating the grooves being shown as -being in closely spaced relationship lwith respect to the inner wall of an outer concentric tube 55.

The grooves 54 extending along the inner tube 53` serve to keep the outer tube 55 from completely closing the lubricant passage between the tubes, should the outside tube collapse due to excess vacuum, and also expose more `area of the inside tube to the llubricant or circulating coolant land thereby increase the heat transfer between the inner tube and the coolant.

While I have herein shown and described several forms in which my invention may be embodied, it should be understood that various Vrvariations and modifications in the invention may be 'attained without departing from the spirit and scope of the novel concepts thereof as defined by the claims appended hereto.
