MT 183 Assembly & Maintenance Exercise: Diaphragm Pump Show data sheet (pdf file) Print page
Technical Description

  Diaphragm pumps are positive displacement pumps and operate oscillatingly, normally primed. Since diaphragm pumps operate absolutely leakage-free, they are particularly suitable - provided the appropriate pump materials are used - for handling aggressive fluids such as acids and caustic solutions as well as radioactive, combustible, odorous and toxic liquids. Another advantage is that they can run dry. Diaphragm pumps are often used for volumetric metering (metering pumps).
  The materials used in the construction of the diaphragm pump employed here make it particularly suitable for use in chemical engineering. It is equipped with a stroke length adjuster, and is deployed as a metering pump.
  The MT 183 kit forms part of the GUNT assembly, maintenance and repair practice line designed for training at technical colleges and in company training centres. A close link between theory and practice is key to the learning content. The kit is ideally suited to project-based learning with a particular emphasis on ‘hands-on’ work. Independent working by the students is assisted and encouraged. Learning in a small team offers a useful learning format.
  MT 183 enables a typical diaphragm pump to be assembled and maintained. Students become familiar with all the pump components and their modes of operation. The parts are clearly laid out in a toolbox. Systematic assembly and disassembly of a pump is practiced.

  The instructional material details the individual steps involved in the exercise, and provides additional information on the areas of application, mode of operation and design of the pump.

Learning Objectives / Experiments
- design and function of a diaphragm pump and its
- assembly and disassembly for maintenance and
  repair purposes
- replacing components (e.g. seals or bearings)
- troubleshooting, fault assessment
- planning and assessment of maintenance and
  repair operations
- reading and understanding engineering drawings
  and operating instructions
* Practical exercise on the assembly and maintenance
  of a diaphragm pump1
* Comprehensive and well-structured instructional
