Definitions for "Diaphragm Pump"
Uses a positive displacement design rather than centrifugal force to move water through the casing, delivering a specific amount of flow per stroke, revolution, or cycle. Due to their great air handling capabilities, diaphragm pumps are ideal for applications involving slow seepage at the point of suction.
Air operated pump that uses a flexible diaphragm to separate the pumping chambers. Handles high viscosity liquids or liquids with suspended solids.
A type of pump in which water is drawn in and forced out of one or more chambers, by a flexible diaphragm. Check valves let water into and out of each chamber.
