Wilden® Original(TM) Metal AODD Pumps Help Optimize Pulp & Paper Manufacture


Grand Terrace, CA - Wilden®, the worldwide leader in air-operated double-diaphragm (AODD) pump technology, has announced that its Original(TM) Series metal Air Operated Double-Diaphragm Pumps (AODD) feature a design that is ideal for demanding liquid-transfer applications that feature a large amount of solids. This robust design makes them ideal for use in the pulp-and-paper industry.

The pulp-and-paper industry is one of the world's most important and diverse industries. In addition to the manufacture of pulp and paper, the industry also encompasses tissue-making, containerboard and paperboard manufacture, box and carton manufacture, and bag and envelope production. All of these operations require a pump that can handle solids as large as 35mm (1-3/8").

The design of Wilden's Original metal pumps can conquer the challenges in pulp-and-paper manufacture because they feature a clamped configuration, lube-free operation and an Ultra-Flex(TM) elastomer option that ensures maximum solid's passage, maximum Mean Time Between Repair (MTBR) and pump reliability without sacrificing ease of maintenance.

The Original metal pumps also offer Wilden's patented Pro-Flo X(TM) air distribution system (ADS), which offers operational flexibility through the incorporation of a state-of-the-art Efficiency Management System (EMS(TM)). The EMS allows the operator to optimize the parameters required for specific applications. To better illustrate the many energy- and cost-saving benefits of its Pro-Flo X(TM) ADS, Wilden has created the See More Green program, details of which can be found at www.wildenpump.com/seemoregreen.
