Various Features And Applications Of Diaphragm Pumps

Diaphragm pumps are mainly used to pump liquids of high viscosity. It is one of the most common industrial pumps that are used to move liquids. This industrial pump includes a chamber and a single diaphragm, valves to check the discharge flow or back flow and suction valves. These pumps can be manufactured using any type of material that can be fabricated or machined. It can also be manufactured in any size.

Diaphragm pumps can be operated with the use of any type of rotational motor which includes hydraulic motor, gasoline motor or electric motor. It can also be driven by air pressure, water pressure and vacuum pressure.

These industrial pumps are quite reliable and efficient there are no internal parts in this device to cause unwanted friction. Diaphragm pump can be used to pump a wide range of materials which include chemicals, acid, coolants, ground water, corrosive materials, concrete, and diesel fuel.  It can also be used to pump hazardous materials such as liquids, highly viscous fluids, oil and so forth. There are pumps which can be used to handle salt water, waste water, sewage waste, lubricants, sludge, slurry, powder or solids.
