Air Operated Diaphragm Pumps

Air Operated Diaphragm Pumps, sometimes known as Pneumatic Diaphragm Pumps, AODD Pumps or AOD Pumps, can be used for multiple applications in the mining and industrial areas, as well as general plant service. Air operated diaphragm pumps are a type of reciprocating diaphragm pump which contains two diaphragms driven by compressed air. Air section with a shuttle valve applies air alternately to the two diaphragms. Each diaphragm has a set of check or ball valves.

The air operated diaphragm pump is especially serviceable in areas where electricity isn’t readily available, or in explosive or fl ammable situation. These air operated diaphragm pumps are also used for chemical transfer, de watering underground coal mines, the food manufacture industry or any application where the liquid being pumped has a high viscosity or high solid content.
