AODD pumps for mining and chemical applications

Air Operated Double Diaphragm Pumps (AODD) are portable pumps commonly used in the mining and chemical industries due to their efficiency and capability to transfer highly viscous, volatile and dangerous fluids. The pump is driven by compressed air and uses reciprocating functions such as the valve seats and valve balls to pump the fluid. The design allows for self priming, large suction lift, and the ability to run dry without any damage to the pump. Global Pumps offers the Verderair brand of AODD pumps.
