    peristaltic pump
  • A peristaltic pump, or roller pump, is a type of positive displacement pump used for pumping a variety of fluids. The fluid is contained within a flexible tube fitted inside a circular pump casing (though linear peristaltic pumps have been made).
  • A dosing pump which works by using rollers to squeeze flexible tubing.
  • variable speed (flow rate) pump consisting of 8-12 rotating rollers pinching a flexible tube. Multiple channel pumps can pump several tubes at one time. Some pulsation. Used in flow injection and continuous flow techniques (amongst others).
  • A plant or animal that is a smaller version of an existing variety or breed
  • a copy that reproduces a person or thing in greatly reduced size
  • A thing that is much smaller than normal, esp. a small replica or model
  • being on a very small scale; "a miniature camera"
  • painting or drawing included in a book (especially in illuminated medieval manuscripts)
  • A very small and highly detailed portrait or other painting

RIGGLE Engine and 1/4 Scale Midget Race Car, Engine Designed and Built by Jim Riggle, ND, mid 1980s

Jim made the patterns and molds for this 4-cylinder, water-cooled, DOHC mono-block engine. It sports pressurized dry sump lubrication, 2 valves per cylinder, a peristaltic oil pump, a water pump, a fuel pump, and it burns methanol on spark ignition. The engine proved to produce 4.5 hp at 15,500 revolutions per minute on a dynamometer. He also designed and built the chassis and Midget car body, which provided the perfect platform to test his new engine. It has many hours of racing time and could break the rear tires free at almost any speed. Courtesy of Ed Miller Paul and Paula Knapp Miniature Engineering Museum
