Hydra-Cell Patented Kel-Cell Diaphragm Protection
Diaphragm Position Control (DPC) Technology
Available on many Hydra-Cell models that use the fixed-angle cam/wobble plate operating principle, Kel-Cell DPC protects Hydra-Cell pumps by safeguarding the diaphragms against abnormal or adverse conditions such as:
Partially or completely blocked suction pipe or suction filter
Partly or completely closed suction isolation valve
Inadequate liquid supply
Excessively viscous fluids
Inadequate discharge pressure
Other conditions that result in excessive vacuum at the pump inlet
These conditions can result from system problems, poor system design, faulty installation, unplanned operational incident or other situations that cause the diaphragms to operate out of hydraulic balance and ultimately deform and rupture.
The Kel-Cell positioning system improves Hydra-Cell pump performance by stabilising the diaphragms in all such conditions and virtually eliminating the possibility of a diaphragm failure caused by adverse system conditions.
