Electromagnetic diaphragm pumps are often referred to as linear air pump; most people recognize them as aquarium air pumps; they look like a toaster. They use an electromagnetic system that oscillates the diaphragm and creates a steady flow of air. They are simple but very durable and this is the quietest way to create air pressure. But silence brings limitations and they provide no more than 6-7 psi or 0.41-0.48 bar pressure for larger models and most operate at a maximum of 3-4 psi or 0.21-0.28 bar.


With the right type of air diffuser, they are ideal for shallow water gardens. We have sold many diaphragm pumps over the years and the most common comment that comes up is that people are drawn to their quiet operation. However, they are wrong about the depth of their water basins; the diaphragms therefore wear out and break constantly. Trust our salespeople to provide you with the right system.

Online sales are typically for people with basic knowledge of these compressors. Contact us if you have any doubts about which model to choose!

Diaphragm compressors (piston)

This diaphragm compressor is designed to give you more pressure, and airflow similar to linear compressors. Our main compressors using a piston diaphragm are the CDIs which are small units designed to deliver a top pressure of 20 psi or 1.38 bar.

The manufacturers of flexible diaphragm compressors are GAST, GD Thomas and KNF to name a few.

You will find this compressor in the Mini-Air 4 aeration kit.
