Paper Abstract

Micro technology makes it possible to design products simply, efficiently and sustainably and at the same time, opens up the creation of new functionalities. The field of application of the micro annular gear pumps lies in analytical instrumentation, mechanical and plant engineering, chemical and pharmaceutical process engineering as well as in new markets like fuel cells or biotechnology, organic electronics or aerospace. The purpose of this paper is to investigate by using the powerful ANSYS 16 CFX module the hydrodynamic behavior of an 8/9 teeth annular gear pump. The solving of solids evolving inside fluids was very cumbersome until the advent of the Ansys immersed solid technology. By deploying this technology for very special topics like the CFD analysis of Micro annular gear pumps, credible and reliable results may be pulled leading thus the way for more in depth studies like geometrical a functional optimization of the existing devices. This paper is a valuable guide for the professionals working in the design field of micro pumps handing them a new and powerful design tool.
