Diaphragm Offers Longer Life

Dec. 8, 2010
Developed using a compound based on an ethylene propylene (EP) technology, the Saunders XA Diaphragm offers increased erosion resistance in both corrosive and abrasive chemical applications. According to the company, the new diaphragm provides enhanced flex life, resulting in reduced down time and improved productivity, thereby equating to a lower cost of ownership; demonstrates a 25% improvement in elastic recovery, which results in a better sealing performance and reduced emissions; and allows for maximized rebound resilience, leading to improved erosion resistance while maintaining the same high level of chemical resistance as previous Saunders EP and butyl-based diaphragms.
