Pump Leak Sensor Technology
All-Flo Pump Co. announced it’s All-Safe™ DRM (Diaphragm Rupture Management) system to instantly alert pump operators in the event of a diaphragm rupture.
Ideal for use in chemical processing applications, the All-Safe™ DRM allows for safe fluid handling by detecting any diaphragm failure in a diaphragm pump. The system provides two layers of protection; an “early warning sensor,” installed between the PTFE overlay and the backup diaphragm, detects a leak if the PTFE overlay becomes compromised. The sensor alerts pump operators of the leak before the backup diaphragm is compromised and hazardous fluid enters the air section. A second “critical leak detection sensor” is installed in the air section itself. Should both diaphragms become compromised, this sensor will detect fluid in the air section.
- the early warning
- and critical sensors
can be configured to take a variety of actions should a leak be detected, such as turning on a warning light, sounding an audible alarm or triggering pump shut-off. The All-Safe™DRM is powered by 120VAC. The signal cord is available in 5-, 10-, 15- or 20-foot lengths.
