Facts | SAMOA Industrial diaphragm pumps
SAMOA Industrial manufactures diaphragm pumps known for their durability, reliability, and efficiency. These pumps are used to handle complex fluids in various industrial applications such as chemical handling, food production, and the automotive industry.

Diaphragm pumps are a type of positive displacement pump that uses a flexible diaphragm to move fluids. They are often used in industries that require the safe handling of chemicals, liquids with high viscosities, or liquids with solid particles.

Function and Mechanism

Diaphragm pumps operate by moving a diaphragm back and forth to create a vacuum that draws in the liquid. The liquid is then expelled through the outlet valve when the diaphragm returns to its original position. This movement is typically powered by compressed air or hydraulics.

• Chemical Resistance - diaphragm pumps can handle corrosive and abrasive liquids.
• Self-Priming - these pumps can draw liquids without the need for priming.
• Dry Run Protection -they can operate dry without damage, which is useful in many applications.
• Variable Speed -the flow rate can be easily adjusted.

Areas of Use
• Chemical Industry -for handling acids, bases, and solvents.
• Food Industry -fo pump liquids containing solid particles without damaging them.
• Pharmaceutical Industry -for sterile and controlled environments.

Types of Diaphragm Pumps
• Pneumatic Diaphragm Pumps -powered by compressed air and suitable for explosive or flammable environments.
• Electric Diaphragm Pumps -driven by an electric motor and used where electric power is readily available.

Important Components
• Diaphragm -made from materials such as PTFE or nitrile for chemical resistance.
• Valves -single or double sealing to control fluid flow.
• Housing -made of metal or plastic depending on the application.

Maintenance and Operation
• Regular Inspection -checking diaphragms and valves for wear.
• Cleaning - regular cleaning to prevent material build-up.
• Parts Replacement -replacing worn components to ensure optimal performance.

Diaphragm pumps offer a versatile and reliable solution for many industrial applications. Their ability to handle a wide range of liquids, along with their robust design, makes them an essential tool in many processes.
