To see the basic principle of a tubing pump in action, lay a soft rubber or plastic tube across a hard, flat surface. (See Diagram Below) With a rolling pin, pinch the tube closed at the line A-A, then roll the rolling pin toward the line B-B. As the rolling pin is pushed forward, any fluid (liquid...
