Abstract

See full text

A pump includes a pump housing, an inlet, an outlet, a rotatable eccentric, a deformable element between housing and eccentric and a delivery channel from inlet to outlet formed by the deformable element and the housing. The deformable element is pressed against the housing in sections by the eccentric forming a movable seal of the channel and a closed volume in the channel being movable along the channel from inlet to outlet to pump the liquid by rotating the eccentric. A method for operating the pump includes a) setting a liquid quantity to be pumped, b) determining a temperature of the deformable element, c) determining a parameter considering the temperature from step b), the parameter representing a dependence between movement of the eccentric and pump capacity and d) pumping the liquid quantity set in step a) by adapting an operating mode of the pump considering the parameter from step c).
