High-Pressure AODD Pump accepts dialed-in operational parameters.
July 18, 2012 -
Accommodating applications that require transfer of viscous, solid-laden slurries at discharge pressures to 250 psig, HX400S features bolted construction, lube-free operation, and DIN or 300-pound ANSI flanged connections; 1 ½ in. inlet and discharge connections are also available. One liquid chambers is used as amplification chamber, allowing pump to generate 2:1 ratio of discharge fluid pressure to air inlet pressure. This eliminates reliance on external boosters or amplifiers.

Wilden® Announces Availability of New HX400S High-Pressure AODD Pump
Grand Terrace, CA - Wilden®, the worldwide leader in air-operated double-diaphragm pump technology, is pleased to announce the availability of its new HX400S High-Pressure Air-Operated Double-Diaphragm (AODD) Pump, which has been designed for use in applications that require the reliable transfer of viscous, solid-laden slurries at high discharge pressures.
What differentiates the HX400S AODD pump from competitive models is that, rather than relying on costly external boosters or amplifiers, one of the pump's liquid chambers is used as an amplification chamber. This allows the pump to generate a 2:1 ratio of discharge fluid pressure to air inlet pressure, resulting in the ability to achieve a discharge fluid pressure of up to 250 psig (17.2 bar).
Additionally, the HX400S pump, which is available with 1-1/2" (38 mm) inlet and discharge connections, is outfitted with Wilden's standard-setting Pro-Flo X(TM) Air Distribution System (ADS). The Pro-Flo X ADS features a state-of-the-art Efficiency Management System (EMS(TM)), which allows the operator to dial in the actual operational parameters regardless of the application demands or pump size.
Other features and benefits of the HX400S pump include:
· Advanced(TM) bolted construction for maximum product containment
· DIN or 300-pound ANSI flanged connections
· Lube-free operation
· Superior anti-freezing performance
· 62 gpm (235 L/min) maximum flow rate
· 125 psig (8.6 bar) maximum air inlet pressure
· 250 psig (17.2 bar) maximum discharge pressure
