What are the advantages of using a diaphragm pump?

A diaphragm pump is used for handling the transfer of a range of fluids as well as dosing chemicals in several industries including laundry dispensing. The diaphragm pump provides advantages over other options such as peristaltic and venturi.

Diaphragm pumps are reliable, and not prone to blockages, which overall results in lower maintenance for those servicing the pumps. The Nexus pump eliminates frequent site visits for squeeze tube replacement which you expect with a peristaltic pump. The venturi pump is prone to blockages, resulting in slower productivity of the laundry unit. The diaphragm pump assists the production process with its efficiency and low maintenance requirements.

Our Brightwell Diaphragm pumps

Our in-house design team has developed and created a patented diaphragm pump to operate at higher flow rates compared to peristaltic pumps. This allows for the unit to operate quicker and be more precise in its dosing for laundry appliances.

Diaphragm pumps also separate the fluid from the mechanical components, reducing the risk of contamination. With peristaltic pumps, the fluid comes into contact with the tubing, resulting in frequent replacement just to avoid the risk of contamination.
