This proposed work will develop a new pump design, which is based on a uniquely generated orbital motion. The pump is intrinsically sealed and mechanically balanced, resulting in quiet, safe operation. The pump design has no seals, valves, bearings, complex mechanical linkages, or drive motor. Its simplicity promises to provide a pump, which is compact and reliable, has low mass, and possesses quiet, safe operation, ideal for long-term, space-based, microgravity applications.
