What Are Diaphragm Valves?
In dust collection systems, diaphragm valves play a crucial role in regulating airflow to optimize cleaning. By creating a pulse of air, these valves dislodge dirt and dust from the outside of filters, allowing debris to be collected and discarded. They are widely used in various industries and applications, including:
- Chemical processing facilities
- Woodworking shops
- Food processing plants
- Pharmaceutical manufacturing systems
- Power generation stations
- Cement plants
- Recycling plants
How Do Diaphragm Valves Work?
Diaphragm valves operate on a simple principle with a design centered around two key components: the diaphragm and the solenoid.
The diaphragm is a thin flexible rubber piece which separates the valve body into an upper and lower cavity while sealing the valve outlet. In the closed position, the diaphragm seals the valve's main outlet allowing air pressure to build in the upper and lower cavities. When the solenoid is energized, air from the upper cavity is quickly exhausted reducing the air pressure in the upper cavity. This creates a pressure difference between two cavities and allows the diaphragm to be pushed up, opening the outlet of the valve and creating the pulse of air.
