What is a diaphragm pump?

The diaphragm pump has a high suction power and also does not require ventilation. It does not have mechanical seals and is explosion-proof, and also with its very easy use, it is used for pumping all kinds of acids, bases, liquefied gas, edible and industrial oils, solvents, etc. Types of diaphragm pumps include pneumatic diaphragm pump, manual diaphragm pump and electric diaphragm pump. Among its features, we can mention its working mechanism, reasonable price, high efficiency and ease of use, which are used to pump all kinds of fluids.

Diaphragm pump

These pumps have two diaphragm plates and, depending on the type of fluid that is flammable or simple, electrical systems or pneumatic actuators are used.

How diaphragm pump works (pneumatic)

To get acquainted with how the diaphragm pump works, it is necessary to first know some points about these pumps. The most common type of these products are dual-channel diaphragm pumps. These pumps have two diaphragms and a chamber, the diaphragms of which are connected to each other by an interface rod. These diaphragms move in a linear direction. Pneumatic pumps have an air distribution valve. This valve is responsible for injecting compressed air behind the diaphragms. By changing the air behind each diaphragm and draining the air from the other diaphragm, the diaphragms move. The diaphragm pump works in such a way that by performing this reciprocating operation continuously and reducing the pressure, the fluid enters the pump tank and in the next step, with increasing pressure, the fluid is transferred out and pumped.

Diaphragm pumps use one-way valves, hoses and valves. Tongue-pump pumps can pass fine solid particles. In these pumps, due to the presence of solid particles and the tendency of these particles to settle, the pump outlet is located at the bottom of the pump chamber so that the fluid with solid particles can be easily removed. In pumps whose outlet is located at the bottom, the transfer of viscous fluid with low flow and high pressure due to the lack of air out of the chamber, the displacement of the pump is reduced unless the flow rate is high and the air is discharged with the fluid.

Diaphragm pumps with ball valves are the most suitable type of these pumps. In these pumps, the inlet is located at the bottom of the diaphragm chamber and the outlet is located at the top of the chamber. This design in diaphragm pumps allows the gases inside the pump chamber to be easily evacuated due to the lightness associated with the fluid. The outlet located at the top of the pump allows air or vapors inside the pump to escape easily due to the lightness with the fluid.

The diaphragm, which is usually made of elastomer, is used as a seal or mechanical seal, and due to its material, it can be used in a wide range of temperature and pressure without the need for lubrication.

Diaphragm pump function

Diaphragm pump feature (air pump)
In diaphragm pumps, the power consumption and the amount of air consumed by the pump is related to the flow and output of the pump. If the pump output flow is zero, the amount of air consumed is at its lowest, and when we have the maximum flow, the amount of air consumed by the pump is at its highest. This feature of diaphragm pumps helps the pump output current to be usable at all intervals.

In diaphragm pumps, the compressed air pressure, flow rate and NPSH determine the outlet pressure and the head has no effect. The amount of NPSH required in a diaphragm pump is the same as for other reciprocating pumps. The criterion for determining NPSH is the rate of efficiency drop at constant velocity or flow, which is about 3%.

Diaphragm pump actuators
Air Operated Double Diaphragm Pump, also known as AODD Pump. These products are made with different drivers. like the:

Electrical diaphragm pump
Manual diaphragm pump
Pneumatic diaphragm pump
Pneumatic compressed air starters are more widely used in this type of pumps and are often known by this name in the industry.

Electric diaphragm pump
Some manufacturers of diaphragm pumps have developed diaphragm pumps with pneumatic actuators. Diaphragm pumps with electric drive can be used when compressed air is not possible. This series of diaphragm pumps usually has a lower efficiency than diaphragm air pumps. The following figure shows an example of electrically driven diaphragm pumps.

Electric diaphragm pump

High pressure diaphragm pump
As mentioned, diaphragm pumps are capable of producing 8 times the output pressure. To achieve higher pressures, some diaphragm pump manufacturers have developed high-pressure diaphragm pumps. Diaphragm pumps are often one-to-one and produce 1 outlet pressure per 1 inlet air pressure. High pressure diaphragm pumps have 2 outlet pressures for 1 inlet pressure. This series of diaphragm pumps are mainly used in filter press systems. High pressure diaphragm pumps are often marketed in metallic materials.

Material of one-way pump valve

Diaphragm pumps use one-way valves, hoses or valves. Due to the characteristics of diaphragm pumps in the transfer and movement of various materials, this pump is also used to transfer slippery and abrasive materials. To increase the wear resistance of these parts, metal one-way valves are protected with a thick layer of plastic and liner, or elastomeric materials are used in its construction.

Application of diaphragm pump (air pump)
Uses of this product include draining flammable fluids, alcohols, edible and industrial oils, liquefied gases, acids and bases, juices, milk, edible fluids, detergents. Also from these pumps for pumping and transferring fluids and slurries such as ceramic slurries, paints, cement grouts, chemicals, adhesives, resins, petroleum products, drilling mud, mineral concentrate, printer ink, sewage, latex, burnt oil, coating Used asphalt, wastewater, radioactive wastewater, porcelain paste, mineral waste, volatile solvents and explosives and so on.

Barrel pneumatic diaphragm pump
Diaphragm barrel discharge pumps can be used to transfer fluids from inside tanks and barrels. The barrel pneumatic diaphragm pump works with compressed air and has a high suction power, and as a result, they are used to pump all kinds of fluids. This type of pump is able to suck fluids up to a height of 8 meters and due to the high variety of production in the body material and diaphragm is used to suck and transfer fluids from inside the tanks and barrels. Also, due to the explosion-proof capability of these pumps, it is very useful for suction and transfer of flammable liquids such as solvents.

How to maintain diaphragm pumps

Check and tighten all pump connections periodically to prevent leakage.

The diaphragms of these pumps are most prone to damage, as they are in direct contact with the fluid and are also vulnerable due to their flexibility and must be inspected periodically.
One of the characteristics of these pumps is dry operation, but dry operation in the long run causes damage to the pump and also unnecessary wear of pump parts.
The internal chamber of the pump must be thoroughly rinsed after each use to prevent the destructive effects of the fluid remaining in the pump (depending on the conditions of use of the pump, it must also be sterilized).
