Manufacturer Spotlight: RAN Double Diaphragm Pumps

We import water pumps from all over the world into Australia. RAN pumps are made in Istanbul, Turkey, and sold on every continent. They specialise in diaphragm pumps, and manufacture both air operated and electro-mechanical diaphragm pumps.

Diaphragm pumps are used in many industries, such as food, alcohol, wastewater, petrochemical, chemical, petrol, pulping, paper, and filter press and of course the mining industry. RAN pumps are all proprietary designs, and manufactured by the parent company, Gisan.

Diaphragm pumps work by moving a diaphragm to expand or contract the area of a chamber. Expanding the chamber lowers the pressure, allowing fluids to flow in. Contracting the chamber raises the pressure, forcing fluids to flow out. The action is similar to a cylinder in the engine of your car.

Diaphragm pumps have good suction lift capability, and can be used to pump slurries and sludges that have a high solid content. They can provide discharge pressure as high as 12 bar. Their use runs from large industrial pumps to small pumps in artificial hearts or fish tanks.

Diaphragm pumps are self-priming, and provide up to 97% efficiency. Small diaphragm pumps are even used as air compressors, due to being inexpensive, relatively quiet, and having limited moving parts within the air stream. This ensures that the air will be clean.

We carry eight different lines of RAN double diaphragm pumps: aluminium, plastic, food grade stainless steel, cast stainless steel, cast iron, PVDF (polyvinylidene fluoride), also available in electric driven, and high pressure pumps.

Our plastic pumps range from the AP, which is a ¼ inch polypropylene pump, to the FP, which is a 2 inch polypropylene pump. The aluminium pumps range from the BA, which is ½ inch, to the 3 inch GA. Food grade pumps range from the ½ inch BS to the 3 inch GS. The PVDF pump from BPV, measuring in at ½ inch to the 1”DPV. Cast iron pumps range from 1” DC Series to 3” GC Series. We also have a range of cast stainless steel pumps.

Our electric-driven pumps are available in plastic, aluminium, and stainless steel, in ranges from 1 inch to 3 inch. We carry two high pressure pumps: the 2 inch FHC, and the Hydraulic Piston Pump.
