Once Wilden Pump & Engineering Company opened its doors in 1955, they introduced the world to innovative pump technology. Wilden Pumps invented the Air-Operated Double-Diaphragm (AODD) pump, an alternative to centrifugal pumps. AODD pumps are seal-less and allow for the positive displacement of fluids.
As a pioneer of new technology, Wilden has an advantage over all other AODD pump providers — a 63-year history of knowledge, design and the groundwork in place to solve the toughest of pumping application issues. This pump manufacturer has found ways to increase efficiency, cut energy costs, move highly abrasive product and deliver unparalleled reliability.
Wilden Pumps’ unique design of AODD pumps features an air-operated double diaphragm that can transfer thick fluids without issue. Sludges or slurries with a large amount of grit and solid content are no match for the AODD pump’s suction-lift characteristics. Wilden’s pumps fit the needs of chemical, paint and coating, mining, oil and gas, water and wastewater, liquid terminals, process, semiconductor, food and beverage and pharmaceutical applications. The inventive construction makes these pumps an industry top choice for the transfer of highly viscous liquids.
The Wilden V2550 Velocity Series, for example, is a plastic pump with a unique design featuring a detachable mounting foot. The pump can be reoriented from a vertical to horizontal position because it has multiple inlet and discharge port options. With this feature, it can fit perfectly into constrained spaces, and — with only two moving parts — it’s guaranteed for long-term reliability.
The latest of Wilden’s pump advancements is the Wilden® Pro-Flo® SHIFT (PS) premium air distribution system (ADS). The Pro-Flo SHIFT simple design has won multiple awards for energy savings, performance and efficiency. An air-control spool automatically optimizes air consumption and eliminates overcharging of the air chamber with no reduction in flow rate. Early adapters have found that Pro-Flow SHIFT delivers:
- A 60% savings in air consumption
- More yield per SCFM versus competitive AODD pumps
- 50% lower costs than electronically actuated ADS
- Less downtime, simplified maintenance and fewer operating parts
- Single-point exhaust options
- Plug-and-play operation
- No electronic or submersible parts
Wilden’s quality products are geared toward specific applications:
- Sanitary and Hygienic
Wilden’s hygienic, sanitary and biopharmaceutical AODD pumps have safety standards in mind and can efficiently pump a wide range of viscosities, solids and shear-sensitive products.
- Electronic Control
The Accu-Flo™ Air Distribution System (ADS), for use on AODD pumps, is perfect for exacting applications like batching.
The durable Wilden® Turbo-Flo™ Air Distribution System (ADS) is known for longevity and stress-free serviceability.
- High Pressure
When transferring viscous, solid-laden slurries at high discharge pressures, the Wilden High Pressure Series of AODD pumps are a dependable option.
Rugged mining applications are no match for the Wilden Stallion® model of clamped AODD pumps. They are ideally suited to handle solid-laden mining slurries with simplicity.
- Large Solids Passage
Large solids can cause clogging with ordinary pumps, but not with the Wilden and Brahma™ AODD Pump. Their large internal clearance and flow-through design result in the capacity needed to prevent obstructions.
- Natural Gas Operated
Wilden offers CSA-certified GPS and GPX Natural Gas-Operated Double-Diaphragm Pumps in 13 mm (1/2”) to 76 mm (3”) sizes in aluminum and stainless steel.
- Oil and Gas
Meeting the strict requirements for fuel transfer applications, Wilden UL pumps are certified to UL 79 standards and can be used when dispensing gas products, fuels, petroleum or any other lubricating applications.
