what is a rubber diaphragm?
Rubber Diaphragms are sealing agents, used as moveable membranes to prevent two or more components from leakage and friction. The flexible nature of this seal allows pressure effects to cross the barrier but not the material being contained.
Rubber Diaphragm Application
The main use of rubber diaphragms is in the Pump Industry, Valve Industry, Actuators, Compressors.
Rubber diaphragms and fabric reinforced rubber diaphragms are critical to the operation of equipment and systems in the industrial, automotive, aerospace, oil, gas, medical instrumentation, and pump and valve industries. If a dependable and accurate response to a hydraulic or pneumatic pressure change is needed then almost certainly a diaphragm seal is required. Custom Gasket Mfg. is experienced in engineering and manufacturing solutions for diaphragm applications including pumps, pneumatic diaphragm pumps, high pressure diaphragm pumps, diaphragm pressure gauges, diaphragm vacuum pumps, diaphragm air compressors, diaphragm fuel pumps, diaphragm metering pumps, actuators, pneumatic actuators, thermal actuators, wax actuators, and control valves.
Rubber Diaphragm Category
Product categories for rubber diaphragms are Market Segment by Type, covers Flat Diaphragm, Rolling Diaphragm, Dish Shaped Diaphragm, Covonluted Diaphragm
Rubber Diaphragm Material
There are too many fabric for rubber diaphragms, The most popular fabric use for rubber diaphragms are Dacron and Nylon. Nylon is better on adhesive force and Dacron is better in heat resist and tension strength.
Some times we also use Nomex or cotton cloth. And Nomex is very expansive but can be resist the temperature of 220C degree, and cotton cloth is cheaper.
- Compound rubber
Compound rubber for rubber diaphragm is also a lot chooses. For example, The popular are Nbr, Good Oil resist and elastic is also good.
FKM are oil resist and better in long life and high temperature resist at 200C degree.
Silicone are always use in hot water resist or some place that are food or drink water touch with.
- Compound rubber paste
This compound rubber paste for rubber diaphragm, We can understand it as a glue to stamp with fabric and rubber.
For example, We may use a toluol to melt NBR rubber, And You can image it as a Rubber soup. Than put the fabric into the rubber soup.
Than make under the sun to make fabric dry.
The Rubber diaphragm is counted as the most versatile element across all the sealing needs; serving as a reliable but flexible separating wall between two component spaces. It has a wide – application across industries like Fluid Handling, Power Generation, Aerospace, Chemical & Process Industry, Automotive Tier, Foods & Beverage that use pumps & compressors, actuators, water reservoirs, hydro – accumulators, valves, regulators and any other such industrial components as a part of their operations value chain.
At present, the rubber diaphragm market position produced by GENERAL SEALTECH LIMITED is to sell custom-made diaphragm replacement parts for all current markets.
