Wilden air-operated pump

Wilden standard compressed air diaphragm pump

As the inventor of the compressed air-operated double-diaphragm pump, Wilden Pump & Engineering Co. introduced the first pump of this design in 1955.

No other manufacturer of compressed-air diaphragm pumps can draw from so many years of experience. Development of this technology has continued. Today, Wilden has a comprehensive product line. The right solution is always available for general applications as well as for customized requirements.

  • Flow rate max. 70.4 m³/h
  • Discharge pressure max. 8.6 bar

Description

Technology: Compressed air operated double-diaphragm displacement pump

Advantages:

  • Wilden standard compressed air diaphragm pumps are particularly ideal
    for challenging applications involving solvents, acids, pickling fluids or high viscosities
  • Flow rate and pressure variable
  • For shear-sensitive conveyed goods
  • Metering larger solids
  • Self-priming
  • Dry run safe
  • Infinitely variable control via air volume or pressure
  • Can work against closed slide valve
  • Transportable & immersible
  • Operation and service friendly
  • Temperature limits depending on material from –51°C to 176°C
  • Certificates CE, ATEX, FDA, USDA, 3A, EHEDG  (depending on pump type)

Options

Control systems

Pro-Flo™ technology

The Pro-Flo™ patented air control system has only three moving parts: The asymmetric control piston, the pilot valve and the piston rod/diaphragm unit.

The small surface of the control piston is continually supplied with compressed air, while the larger surface is ventilated or bled via the pilot valve. 
An air control system with maximum reliability.

Pro Flo X

The Pro-Flo X air control system is a further development of the proven Pro-Flo and Pro Flo V controls.

With the new type of effectiveness management system (EMS), the Pro-Flo X offers a flexibility that was previously unknown with compressed air diaphragm pumps.

The patented EMS is simple and easy to operate. By turning the EMS adjustment wheel, the metered quantity and air consumption can be adjusted - to the maximum metered quantity or the highest efficiency to reduce production costs. Pro-Flo X delivers a higher energy efficiency and a flexibility comparable to the industry standard, at lower cost.

Accu-FloTM

The Accu-FloTM air control system uses a 2/4-way solenoid valve with a spring-loaded piston. The control of the stroke frequency is done externally via an electrical pulse. The Accu-FloTM pump moves similarly to a conventional compressed air diaphragm pump through alternating presence or absence of a signal.

Gas Odorization with LEWA Pumps and Metering Packages

Natural gas, oxygen, and nitrogen are odorless but potentially dangerous. This is why these gases are "odorized" with as strong a smelling substance as possible. For more than 40 years, LEWA has been developing systems for the odorization of gases such as natural gases, biogases, and liquefied gases. This process is enormously important, so the odorizing system has to operate precisely and reliably.
