What are the main applications for Air Operated Double Diaphragm Pumps?

  • Motor-driven diaphragm pumps are often used for metering, dosing or dispensing applications but AODD pumps tend to be general workhorse devices, typically used in transfer applications. They are relatively low cost and reliable; they can be run dry and can pump dirty/contaminated liquids.

  • The following table lists some typical applications of Air Operated Double Diaphragm Pumps:



Mining


(Can operate in classified/hazardous areas)

Dewatering above and below ground sites and quarries
Transferring abrasive slurries and sludge mixtures
Dosing reagents
Transferring solvents for separating minerals from ore
Transferring fuels for vehicles and equipment



Coatings


(Can pump low to very viscous solutions, and capable of low shear / gentle fluid transfer)


Transferring, dispensing and dosing paint, ink and dyes

Feed pump for spray guns

Flush/clean paint lines with solvents




Chemical


(Excellent chemical resistance with corrosive/ hazardous chemicals)

Transferring abrasive slurries and sludge mixtures Transferring fuels for vehicles and equipment

Loading and unloading tankers, totes and barrels

Portable utility pump

Batching/dosing chemicals




Electroplating and Anodizing



Replenishing chemicals in plating and metal finishing tanks

Agitation of cleaning solutions

Circulation of liquid to avoid sedimentation

Filtration (when critical purification is required for high quality parts)

Offloading corrosive, solid laden waste




Pulp and Paper


Printing inks

Glues

Kaolin clay
