Diaphragm Pumps

Diaphragm Pumps have some advantages over centrifugal type pumps because of their design… such as

  • Good suction lift
  • Suitable for abrasive or corrosive fluids
  • Good dry running characteristics
  • Good self-priming characteristics
  • Can handle highly viscous liquids
  • Positive displacement
  • Will deliver a fair pressure, but not as high as Progressive cavity
  • Quite lightweight for the work they do
  • Where surging and pulsing doesn’t matter
  • Used a lot around fuels because they don’t have an attached Electric motor
