An air diaphragm pump is a positive displacement (PD) pump that combines reciprocating motion on either side of a diaphragm to pump fluids. When the volume of a chamber increases (the diaphragm moves up), the pressure decreases, drawing fluid into the chamber. Next, the chamber pressure increases (the diaphragm moves down), and the fluid is forced out.
Diaphragm pumps have been used in processing facilities for decades, and Pye-Barker Engineered Solutions can help you find the ideal air diaphragm pump for your processing requirements. We have a broad selection of pumps, as well as compressors, blowers, and vacuums, to help you equip your facility and maintain smooth operations, and we have nearly 35 years of experience providing engineering solutions to companies and organizations throughout Georgia.
Air operated diaphragm pumps, or AODD pumps, are reciprocating positive displacement pumps driven by compressed air. They contain two chambers, and the backward and forward movement of the diaphragm transfers the air supply from one chamber to the other, causing fluid to enter and then exit the pump.
AODD pumps can meet nearly any flow rate or pressure requirement you might have. They can also be used with a wide range of fluids, including corrosive fluids as well as beverages and other items meant for human consumption, making them one of the most versatile pumps on the market. They are also self-priming, so you can save time and money by eliminating manual priming. Additionally, they have fewer components (no motors, packing, or seals), so they are less prone to leakage and offer a safer, cleaner operation.
Pye-Barker Engineered Solutions has a wide range of AODD pumps available in our lines, and we can help you select the right air diaphragm pump for you and your needs.
