A new concept viscous pump that was described earlier in the literature was built and tested to evaluate its performance. It was found that the new concept is feasible and has promising features for use in various applications where high level of cleanliness is required. The pressure-flow characteristic is linear with an easy and accurate flow control which can be attractive in metering pumps.
