Materials Of Construction

With the tremendous variety of liquid chemicals used in industry today, an all-inclusive guide to suitability of materials for pump construction is virtually impossible. For the great majority of common chemicals, pump manufacturers publish data on materials of construction. In general, packed plunger and hydraulically actuated diaphragm pumps are available as standard construction in mild steel, cast or ductile iron, stainless steel, and plastic. Mechanically actuated diaphragm pumps are usually available as standard construction in plastic and stainless steel. Almost any combination of materials can be furnished on special order.

Diaphragms are available as standard construction in Teflon, chemically-resistant elastomers, and stainless steel from various manufacturers.
