3 Advantages of AODD Pumps

May 12, 2020

Safety, Simplicity, and Versatility.  These are three terms that go hand-in-hand with Air-Operated Double-Diaphragm (AODD) Pumps.  While no single pump type can be perfect for all applications, AODD pumps can cover a wide spectrum of applications and materials.

Air-Operated Double-Diaphragm (AODD) pumps are a type of positive displacement pump that utilizes compressed air for a power source.  This feature allows for a few key advantages over other pumps, and depending on your application could offer the perfect solution for your next fluid handling application.

SAFETY

The only fuel required for AODD pumps is literally compressed air. These pumps can operate without any electricity or any fuel, thus eliminating any kind of production line risks.  They are also completely sealed, making the pump leak-proof and allowing them be partially and completely submerged in a liquid. AODD pumps are viewed as the absolute safest design for pumping a wide range of liquids, including some of the most hazardous chemicals.

SIMPLICITY

AODD pumps have been referred to as “plug and play” pumps because of how easy they can be operated. Once connected to a compressed air line, AODD pumps are immediately ready for use. The simple design combined with ease of use has made them one of the most popular options in the pumping industry.
