your production continues without interruption. How it works: The reciprocating plunger displaces hydraulic fluid (dark blue) causing movement of the diaphragm and a like displacement of process fluid. Any diaphragm perforation is immediately signaled. LEWA’s “sandwich” diaphragm with condition monitor is standard in most pumps. Full diaphragm support in the rearmost position eliminates damage to the diaphragm due to overpressure.With leakage eliminated. full performance operation on the other diaphragm until maintenance can be scheduled.Diaphragm pump heads with hydraulically actuated diaphragm 3 fluid must remain pure or sterile. enhanced process integrity and consistent product quality make LEWA diaphragm pumps the safe choice for many applications. and without compromises in process accuracy to affect your end product. Built-in safeguards assure the security of your process: an integrated pressure limiting valve (PLV) protects against overload. LEWA’s advanced diaphragm position control system is used for highest operating safety. LEWA’s well-proven diaphragm position control system keeps the freely-oscillating diaphragm from damages due to process upsets such as cavitation. long service intervals. thereby safely preventing overfilling in any upset condition. high availability. fully supported position before any hydraulic replenishment can take place. long life Efficient – low energy requirements 6 . but also excludes contaminants where the process Ⅵ Ⅵ Ⅵ Ⅵ High metering accuracy – pressure stiff with internal hydraulic degassing Zero leakage – hermetically tight Double containment – sandwich diaphragm with reliable diaphragm condition monitor Overload safe – built-in PLV Protected – diaphragm position control system with full backup support Resilient – can run dry without damage Gentle – conveys sensitive fluids without damage Totally enclosed – positive separation of hydraulic fluid and drive element lubricant Low life cycle costs – low maintenance.
