Electric or Diesel Diaphragm Dewatering Pumps Take the Hassle Out of Removing Sludge
As opposed to utilizing centrifugal force in transferring liquid, diaphragm pumps work like a vacuum when the diaphragm goes up and down very rapidly, thereby sucking in water. Think about pistons in diesel engines. This is ideal for those stubborn sludge or rough liquids that are handled such as transferring water from a pond, sewage, or brackish pool.
The advantage is diaphragm pumps need no water to pass through and lubricate the engine unlike other pumps. Diaphragm dewatering pumps are available in either diesel or electric. Its base can swivel 90˚ and can operate without stopping for about an hour and a half.
The wheels come standard for easy mobility and transfer to the site since the diaphragm pumps are quite heavy at 170 kilos. Also free are the metal suction strainer and the iron nipples. The Honda motor is capable of running at 3,600 rpm and 3.5 horses, which are perfect for low flow applications.
Diaphragm pumps are a "positive displacement" pump and can run continuously with no water running through the pump without damage. This is perfect when you have seepage or low flow applications. They also have the ability to handle heavier liquids that can flow such as mud, slurry, and sewage. Wheels are standard along with iron nipples and metal suction strainer. The base can be rotated 90˚. Also available in electric or diesel.
