    What do you guys think about this type of pump? Is is just good for coal tar and AE?

    Will a solvent based sealer dammage the diaphragm? Or will it blow up?

    The Applications of the Wilden Pump is as follows:
    Chemical, Petrochemical and Hydrocarbon Processing;
    Paints, Inks and Resins; Solvent Recovery; Slurry Transfer; Drum Transfer
    Waste Water/ Pollution Control; Mining / Construction;
    Dry Powder transfer; Food, Beverage and Pharmaceutical

    So you can use it, but the question is why would you want to?

    You need a air source, and it's more money then a gear driven pump.

    We need to use them for CT/AE because we add sand, and have a heavy sand load, so this type pump works well. There is a safety factor too, as there are no moving parts See below as to how there work ( if anybody needs to know )

    I know somebody who is selling the pro 100a system, the price is dirt cheap and the system is in good shape.

    Is anybody fimilar with this system and pump? He says it is a diaphragm pump on there?

    It might make sense to buy, the price is right.

    Somebody was trying to sell me this unit as a solvent based spray system. I wanted to know if the system can handle the use. I am not fimilar at all with this system so I thought I might as well ask the experts around here.

    When I think about it now I should have realized this is not the system for me, they make that system already.
