AODD Pump Offers Flexible Installation Orientations

November 15, 2018

Wilden’s new air-operated double-diaphragm pumps can be installed in vertical or horizontal positions with various inlet and discharge options.

Wilden, part of PSG, a Dover company, has extended its line of specialty air-operated double-diaphragm (AODD) pumps with the addition of the new V150 13 mm (1/2-in.) Velocity Series pump. Featuring a unique detachable mounting foot, Velocity Series pumps can easily be reoriented into a vertical or horizontal position with multiple inlet and discharge port options. With this versatile design, the pump can be installed in multiple orientations, which is an important consideration for systems and skids.

The Velocity Series pumps, available in 13-mm (1/2-in.) and 6 mm (1/4-in.) sizes, have a bore-seal design to eliminate leaks that can result from torque decay. It also delivers improved dry-suction lift. The pumps use a simple air distribution system (ADS) with only two moving parts that reduces the risk of downtime for improved long-term reliability.

The pumps are available in polypropylene and polyvinylidene fluoride construction, as well as an Accu-Flo (solenoid) option, with elastomer. Velocity Series pumps have an interchangeable footprint with previous Wilden designs (P.025, P25, P1, and P100) for user convenience.
