Advantages of diaphragm pumps
- Low maintenance costs for pump repair and service
- Flexible use and simple handling - from enamel to highly viscous material
- Cleaning friendly
- Less overspray for paint application - low pressure operation possible
- Few sources of error - tough construction and design
- Gentle to the material without shear forces
- 10 % longer hoses possible with high pressure operation
WHEN TO CHOOSE DIAPHRAGM TECHNIQUE, THAT IS THE QUESTION.
When thinking about your new pump you might have asked yourself "Why is a diaphragm pump the right choice for me?". However, most professionals base their decision between diaphragm and piston pump on personal preference and gut feeling instead of facts. Since training and customer value is key to us, we provide all facts for you on the following pages.
The main advantages of diaphragm pumps in detail
Why should my next sprayer be a diaphragm pump? I love my piston pump and working with it is great, so why should I switch?

Diaphragm - the seal between pump and paint
The big advantage of diaphragm pumps is that the diaphragm ensures a hermetic seal between the mechanical drive with the hydraulic oil and the material being sprayed. That is how it works: a hydraulic piston driven by an electric motor sets the diaphragm in movement. The resulting suction flow opens and closes the inlet and outlet valves. The material is sucked in and pushed out again within one moving cycle. That means, that the diaphragm prevents abrasion and therefore ensures a long service life and little after sales costs.
