WILDEN: Pump Diaphragms

November 18, 2013

This company’s complete line of EZ-Install TPE diaphragms is available as a replacement of traditional diaphragms. The new diaphragms have reportedly been designed so that the operator in the field does not need to invert the diaphragm during the installation process. This improvement can reduce the installation time, lower maintenance costs and improve uptime. 

“We created these diaphragms with the pump operator in mind,” said Robert Jack, Development engineer. “The convolute diaphragm shape allows them to be quickly and easily installed without inverting the diaphragms, minimizing downtime and operating costs.”

EZ-Install diaphragms are available in Santoprene®, Hytrel®, Polyurethane and Geolast® options. Geolast, a recent addition to Wilden’s material options, is an injection-molded material that can be used for applications requiring enhanced oil resistance equivalent to that of nitrile (Buna-N) at a lower cost. Wil-Flex™ and Saniflex™ are Wilden trademarks for Santroprene and Hytrel components, respectively.
