Mechanical Diaphragm Pumps

About Air Operated Diaphragm Pumps

MECHANICAL DIAPHRAGM PUMPS TRANSFER THICKER FLUIDS WITH GREATER EFFICIENCY


Hunter Pumps’ mechanical diaphragm pumps are built with precision and durability in mind. These pumps, defined by their heavy-duty construction and heavy-duty gearbox coupled with versatile electric, petrol, or diesel engines, are apt for transferring wastewater, recovering oil spills, and dewatering project sites.

The mechanical diaphragm pump operates by utilising a compression chamber, with the diaphragm facilitating the movement of fluids, including challenging substances like sludge. Additionally, they can efficiently ‘run dry’ or ‘on-snore,’ ensuring fluids are moved in a safe and energy-efficient manner.

HOW DOES A MECHANICAL DIAPHRAGM PUMP WORK?

Mechanical diaphragm pumps operate using a simple yet efficient principle, leveraging the flexible nature of a diaphragm and the strategic placement of ball valves. Here’s a step-by-step breakdown of how it works:

Starting Position

At the onset, the chamber's one side is dominated by the diaphragm, a flexible disc. Ball valves securely block both the inlet and discharge ports.

Suction Stroke

When the mechanical shaft draws the diaphragm inward, the chamber's volume increases. This action reduces the internal pressure, causing the ball valve at the inlet to open. The external fluid is then drawn into the chamber, filling the space created by the retracted diaphragm.

Discharge Stroke

With the commencement of the discharge phase, the mechanical shaft pushes the diaphragm forward, decreasing the chamber's volume. This action increases the internal pressure. Consequently, the ball valve at the inlet closes, and the ball valve at the discharge port opens, allowing the fluid inside the chamber to be expelled.

The continuous reciprocating motion of the diaphragm, driven by the mechanical shaft, ensures a steady flow of fluid in and out of the chamber, making the mechanical diaphragm pump a reliable choice for various fluid transfer applications.

MECHANICAL DIAPHRAGM PUMP INSTALLATION AND MAINTENANCE

Mechanical diaphragm pumps also need proper installation and regular maintenance to maximise lifespan. Here’s a step-by-step guide for the installation and upkeep of these pumps:
