Tube pumps which transfer fluid by squeezing the tube with rollers are used in various fields thanks to their cleanliness and convenience. However, periodical flow fluctuation occurs when the rollers leave the tube because the tube restoring force disrupts the flow speed. In this paper, we contend that the pump can theoretically achieve non-pulsating flow by assuming the rollers can move independently and operating them at a non-constant speed based on an ideal operation model we make. The effectiveness of this model is shown by simulation and experimental verifications using repetitive control theory.
