Powder Pumps are used to transport powders by mixing them with air, making them behave as a fluid.
Basically, a diaphragm pump is used to convey by changing the volume in a container by pulling a membrane called a diaphragm with a piston.
Some products are devised to reduce dust generation by reducing the amount of air used and by transporting products at a constant flow rate with little pulsation.
In addition to diaphragm pumps, there are also products that are transported using blowers and vacuum pumps.
Powder Pumps are used in a wide range of industries, including food processing plants, chemical plants, and water purification facilities.
When selecting a powder pump, it is necessary to consider whether the equipment is compatible with the amount of transport and the powder to be transported, the flow rate, the amount of pulsation, the degree of dust generation control, size, and power consumption.
Also, due to the nature of powder, a lot of maintenance is required, so maintainability is also important.
The following are examples users of powder pumps:
The following is an explanation of the principle of operation of Powder Pumps, using a diaphragm pump as an example.
Powder Pumps consist of a suction port, a diaphragm pump, and a blowout port. A diaphragm pump consists of a container, one or two membranes called diaphragms, a piston for displacing the diaphragm outside the container, and a valve.
In operation, when the diaphragm pump is restored with the valve on the outlet side of the diaphragm pump, which is contracting the vessel, closed, the internal pressure drops and powder is sucked in from the inlet side. After that, the valve on the inlet side is closed and the diaphragm pump is moved in the direction of shrinking the container, the internal pressure increases, and when the valve on the outlet side is opened, the powder is blown out from the outlet and transported. By connecting diaphragms to both ends of the piston, it is common to have two diaphragms because powder can be transported efficiently in one reciprocation.
