Air-operated double diaphragm pumps, or AODD pumps, are the most reliable pumps for transferring liquids and viscous fluids safely, efficiently, and precisely. Their versatile control operations, from flow to shear and from filtering solids to dispensing acute liquid measurements, make them ideal for use in a variety of industries and applications.
Here are the top five sectors that benefit from AODD pumps, and how they’re used to make processes run smoothly on a daily basis.
- Food and Beverage
Safety regulations are the name of the game for handling food and beverage supplies, so sanitary diaphragm pumps are essential for maximizing output and profits while still meeting hygienic codes. This is especially important as food manufacturing continues to grow: From 2012 to 2013, food and beverage sales in the U.S. rose 13%, with a 17% increase in average net profits. Sales of children’s food and beverages alone amounted to $23.2 billion in 2013.
- Water Treatment
Additionally, AODD pumps are vital for safely processing municipal and industrial wastewater. Because they’re able to run dry without electricity, diaphragm pumps are perfect for wet conditions.
More than being efficient, an AODD pump is highly durable, easy to clean, and capable of withstanding abuse from heavy machinery on construction sites. They make the job run faster with a pump system you can rely on, even on tough sites.
Harsh, abrasive chemicals are not only dangerous if handled incorrectly, they can be downright expensive to deal with in the aftermath of a spill. AODD pumps are equipped to handle acids, solvents, and alcohols that could otherwise pose hazards to worker and public safety.
Few industries require more precise measurements and attention to detail than pharmaceutical manufacturing and development. Accurate flow control in AODD pump systems help make sure that our drugs are created safely and cost-effectively.
While there may be as many different pump and motor combinations as there are industries in the world, few systems are more versatile, more reliable, and more effective than air-operated double diaphragm pumps.
