Fabric Reinforced Diaphragms
Diaphragms are flexible barriers that are commonly used to provide a seal and to isolate an enclose between a moving and stationary part. One example of an application where a diaphragm is used is with a piston working within a cylinder.
Static Diaphragms separate two fluids with little motion or pressure. Dynamic Diaphragms form a seal between stationary and moving parts, and transmit pressure.
Reinforcing the diaphragm with a fabric adds strength and sensitivity with minimum thickness.
Selecting the Fabric:
When selecting the fabric to be used to reinforce the diaphragm, the following factors are important:
- Diaphragm pulse rate effect
- Risk of tearing of the fabric due to flange sealing conditions
- Required balance between sensitivity and strength of the fabric
- Environmental effects on the fabric, i.e. flammability and temperature
Fabric reinforced diaphragms are used in many different applications, including:
- Air compressors
- Pressure sensors
