Next-generation diaphragms have been designed to meet the pumping challenges inherent in the sticky and viscous materials that are the foundation of adhesive and coating manufacturing.
It’s simple: without adhesives, the world would literally fall apart. They are utilized in almost every industry in the world and in the manufacture of millions of unique products, with the highest concentration in the packaging, automotive, electronics, building and construction, home goods, textiles, and transportation markets.
A key component in the adhesive production chain is the pumps that are used to transfer raw materials and finished products. The adhesive manufacturing process typically involves a roster of solvents, catalysts, and resins combined together in order to create the finished adhesive product.
As a result, the pumps that are used to facilitate the adhesive production process must be versatile, reliable, and robust enough to handle liquids of many different types and structures, including those that may be corrosive, abrasive, or hazardous. Positive displacement air-operated double-diaphragm (AODD) pumps—especially those that are outfitted with next-generation diaphragm technologies—possess the operational and compatibility capabilities for use in the manufacture of the adhesives that help keep the world in one piece.
