Pneumatic diaphragm pumps are a type of positive displacement pump that uses compressed air as the driving force. They are characterized by their unique design, which includes a flexible diaphragm that moves back and forth to create a pumping action.
This design allows them to efficiently handle viscous, abrasive, and shear-sensitive fluids, making them ideal for a range of industries and applications.
Advantages of pneumatic diaphragm pumps
- Self-Priming: Pneumatic diaphragm pumps are self-priming, which means they can evacuate air from the suction line and start pumping quickly.
- Versatility: They can handle solids, shear-sensitive fluids, and high-viscosity materials, making them versatile for various applications.
- Safety: These pumps are inherently safe for handling hazardous and volatile fluids since they do not require electricity.
- Low Maintenance: They have fewer moving parts, reducing the need for frequent maintenance.
- Dry Running: Pneumatic diaphragm pumps can run dry without causing damage, increasing their durability.
Pneumatic diaphragm pumps versatility means that they are used in a variety of industries for a range of applications, including transferring chemicals, acids, and solvents in the chemicals industry, dewatering, slurry transfer, and handling abrasive materials in the mining industry, and transferring sewage and sludge in wastewater treatment plants.
Where to buy pneumatic diaphragm pumps
Investing in the right pneumatic diaphragm pump tailored to your needs can significantly enhance productivity and safety in your operations. There are no one-size-fits-all pumping solutions for mining applications, so Carroll Technologies Group has developed a broad and diverse portfolio of products from trusted manufacturers. Based on extensive experience servicing more than 800 mines in North America, Carroll Technologies Group works closely with customers to supply the best pumping solution for a site’s requirements.
SAMOA Pivot Universal Pumps (UP) are Air-Operated Double-Diaphragm (AODD) positive displacement pumps. They have two pumping sections, with each side featuring a liquid and air chamber that are divided by a diaphragm. The diaphragms are connected to a shaft, and during one pumping stroke, fluid is suctioned into one liquid chamber while simultaneously the fluid in the opposite liquid chamber is discharged. The new SAMOA Pivot UP introduces a unique frictionless Pivot-Shaft Air Valve to provide maximum performance and energy efficiency, which exceeds market expectations.
Finding the right mining pump is not a simple “add to basket purchase”, so Carroll Technologies Group supports its customers to find the right product, whether it involves a simple application or a fully customised pump network. In addition to innovative AODD pumps, Carroll Technologies Group can service your entire operation with a range of valves, pumps, mixers and tanks, as well as pump parts, instrumentation and complete designed pumping systems. Other industry-leading pump manufacturers in Carroll Technologies’ portfolio include Stancor, Equipment Pro and Mefcor.
