Wilden® Releases Chem-Fuse Diaphragms for Industrial Applications

New diaphragms provide benefits of traditional IPDs without sacrificing performance

soda-production-4Grand Terrace, CA – April 26, 2017Wilden®, part of PSG®, a Dover company and a worldwide leader in air-operated double-diaphragm (AODD) pump technology, is pleased to announce the release of its new Chem-Fuse diaphragms specifically designed for industrial applications. Incorporating the core patented technology of the Wilden integral piston Pure-Fuse diaphragm, the new Chem-Fuse diaphragm is the ideal solution for critical industrial application issues without sacrificing performance.

Wilden Chem-Fuse diaphragm technology eliminates the potential leak point at the outer piston as well as outer piston abrasion. This is crucial for industrial applications that pump abrasive or dangerous fluids. The diaphragm design also offers easy cleanability for faster changeovers between products. These features allow Chem-Fuse diaphragms to greatly enhance your pump through increased productivity, reliability and safety without impacting performance.

An additional benefit of Chem-Fuse diaphragms compared to other reduced-stroke integral piston diaphragms (IPDs) is the use of a large integral piston and full-stroke shaft that provides greater efficiency. This design allows Chem-Fuse diaphragms to provide up to 100% increased flow and suction lift compared to other diaphragms.

Wilden Chem-Fuse diaphragms are available in 25 mm (1”), 38 mm (1-1/2”), 51 mm (2”) and 76 mm (3”) sizes with a temperature range from -40°C to 107°C (-40°F to 225°F). These diaphragms are constructed of Wil-Flex™ material that offers excellent flex life, high abrasion resistance and outstanding durability, even when handling acids, caustics and other aggressive fluids. Chem-Fuse diaphragms are available for Wilden Pro-Flo® SHIFT bolted-metal and plastic models.
