Troubleshooting of diaphragm pump
The troubleshooting guide for diaphragm pumps, when encountered in one or more of the following situations, this information can be used as a guide to help you develop maintenance measures.As shown below, some of the abnormal operating conditions described in this guide are: A) fast circulation / low flow B) no cycle / slow cycle / irregular cycle C) leakage D) noise E) component rupture

In the application of the pump, these conditions are likely to encounter. Each situation can be divided into several possible reasons. This guide lists the causes of failures and gives appropriate corrective maintenance measures. The meaning of all the specific terms in the guide is listed later.Air valves - copper or stainless steel valves are bolted to the center of the pump by four bolts.The piston aluminum cylinder is enclosed in the air valve to control the gas flow.Cavitation - because the pump inlet for the amount of fluid to reduce or lack, the pump discharge is less than the amount of quantitative. In fact, the fluid chamber is full of fluid before it is discharged.Static pressure drop - the inlet pressure from the pump centerline to the free point - the inlet is measured in pounds, including the specific gravity and velocity of the fluid.

The ratio of flow to water weight at a specific weight of --68F. 68F water has a specific gravity of 1Static suction head - the vertical distance from the liquid level to the central line of the pump. The pump shall be above the level of the liquid.Vapor pressure the pressure of all the steam on the free surface of the liquid. In any pump operating system, the operating pressure shall not be lower than the vapor pressure, otherwise the steam will be partially or completely cut off into the pump fluid. Viscosity - because of the presence of friction in the fluid, the property of viscosity gives the fluid resistance to flow.Water hammer action -Water hammer is a sudden power failure, or in the valve closed too fast, due to pressure, flow of inertia, produce water shock waves, like hammer hammer, so called water hammer. The force produced by the flow of water shock waves can sometimes be very large, thereby damaging the valves and pumps. Water hammer effect refers to the inside of the water pipe, the pipe wall is smooth, flow freely. When the opening of the valve suddenly closes, the flow of water to the valve and the tube wall, mainly the valve, will produce a pressure. As the pipe wall is smooth, the subsequent water flow in the role of inertia, the fastest reach the maximum and damage, which is the water conservancy "water hammer effect", that is, "positive water hammer.". This factor should be taken into consideration in the construction of water conservancy pipelines. On the contrary, the valve closed in a sudden opening, it will produce water hammer, called negative water hammer, but also a certain destructive power, but not the former big..
