Generally, there is no need to prime any of the micro pumps from the mp6 series. As they’re self-priming there are no preparations needed before usage.
The testing conditions are:
- suction pressure < 10 mbar
- DI water
- settings mp-x: 100 Hz, 250V, SRS
Normally the mp6 series is able to prime even with higher suction pressures. If, for any reason, you need to prime the pump manually, we have a short tutorial for the following steps on our YouTube.
- mp6 and micro pump control (e.g. mp-x)
- clean tubes
Step 1: run the pump at max settings and clamp down the inlet tubing
Step 2: create a vacuum inside the pump by pulling the syringe on the outlet
Step 3: remove the clamp, keep the vacuum while opening
Step 4: remaining air will now exit the pump and it is properly primed
