A calibrated BLPR2 on the LabTrax24Twas used to record the results. This is a plot of both pumps on the #14 tubing at 50 RPM into a 22 gauge needle. The flow is estimated to be 9 ml/min at 50RPM. Here is the PeriStar Pro under dampening. The first image shows 38.38 mmHg before dampening. The second one shows 0.280 mmHg after dampening.
