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.
