The Wilden® Wil-Gard™ III Diaphragm Monitoring System for air-operated double-diaphragm (AODD) pumps detects diaphragm failure at the source, the primary diaphragm, not at the air chamber or the air exhaust as other systems do. This is accomplished by utilizing sensors located between PTFE primary diaphragms and back-up (containment) diaphragms within each side of the Wilden pump. When the sensors detect conductive fluid, an audible alarm, high-brightness LED and an internal latching relay are activated while the back-up diaphragms offer containment. The relay gives you the ability to activate external components such as isolation valves or air shut-off valves. The systems leads to an increase in containment, a reduction in fugitive emissions, and a reduction in down time and maintenance costs with 24-hour pump surveillance.
The Wil-Gard III can be purchased as a factory installed option in the Wilden pump or as an accessory that can be installed in existing pumps.
