How Do Diaphragm Pumps and Compressors Work?
Diaphragm pumps and compressors work by reducing a volume from the pump chamber using a flexible membrane in the pump head. A crank moves the pump head through the eccentric motion on the motor shaft. These positive displacement pumps feature the leak-proof pump chamber, operational water vapor tolerance, and outstanding chemical compatibility. The design allows them to transfer various gases even with particles..
Thomas' engineers were able to achieve excellent size to performance ratio and full controllability over the working point. Thanks to that, these units are successfully used as a vacuum pump or compressor.
