The main difference between impulse turbine and reaction turbine lies in the way water enters and exits the turbine, as well as the working principle of the water turbine.

    Air Operated Double Diaphragm Pump vs. Single Diaphragm Pump

    In the field of liquid transportation, pneumatic diaphragm pump is a common and widely used pump type. Air-operated diaphragm pumps use compressed air or other gases to drive the pump's movement, rather than relying on electric motors or other traditional power sources. Because the pneumatic diaphragm pump does not rely on electricity, it can work in places with unstable or no power supply. Therefore, in some special working environments, such as the field, remote areas or explosion-hazardous areas, the pneumatic diaphragm pump is a reliable and safe liquid delivery solution. And it is also suitable for various corrosive liquids, liquids with particles, high viscosity, volatile, flammable and highly toxic liquids. Pneumatic diaphragm pumps are divided into pneumatic double diaphragm pumps and pneumatic single diaphragm pumps according to their structure. So what are the differences between pneumatic double diaphragm pumps and single diaphragm pumps?
