We’re a team of mechanical engineers in Egypt working on a biomedical project of a Left Ventricular Assist Device, which is mainly a pump that pumps blood and is implanted through the heart. We were looking for a motor that is both small and can go up to 4000 RPM.
I participated in the MATE ROV competition twice and I thought about using the T-100 motor for this, but the main issue is that the pump will be touching blood but the coils won’t be, so we were wondering whether the motor will stop working if it’s not lubricated by blood or water; is there a solution or a suggestion for this, cuz we really need that motor for our project, it’s the most compact we found for the implantation in the patient’s body.
Is the main reason for the T-100’s incapability to work outside of water due to lubrication? or it for priming? Please help us out.
