Diaphragm Compressor

The Howden diaphragm compressors "D" series was invented in 1916 by Henri Corblin. The company he co-founded is now part of the Howden organisation.

Diaphragm compression is the technology of choice in any situation where complete hermetic separation is required, for example in the handling of rare, toxic, flammable, explosive or radioactive gases.

Key Features

  • Diaphragm compressors can be provided as fully tested skid-mounted packages ready for easy installation and problem-free commissioning

Benefits

  • Our unique HIDS system provides constant real-time monitoring of head integrity and provides a fail-safe stop procedure and containment of process gas in the event of a breach, thus providing absolute safety in operation.
  • Low rotation speeds minimises fatigue.

Applications

  • ​​These units are suitable for virtually all dry gases including helium, hydrogen and nitrogen.
