Air operated diaphragm pumps for all fluid types
AOD pumps, or air operated diaphragm pumps, are positive displacement pumps driven by compressed air rather than an electric motor. The AOD pump design means that it can cope with pretty much any fluid from water to viscous slurries to 90% solids including large, shear sensitive particles without degrading them. Air operated double diaphragm pumps are able to benefit from variable flow or pressures just by adjusting the air supply. Read our guide to air operated diaphragm pumps here.
The air operated diaphragm pump design makes it suitable for use in a wide range of industries:
Food and beverages
Mining and construction
Printing, paint and ink
AODD pumps are self-priming and therefore have good suction capabilities, as well as being able to dry run without doing any damage to the pump making them useful for batch operations in industry. It is common for smaller sized AODs to be portable.
