Air-Operated Double-Diaphragm Pumps with Bolted Design for Paint and Coatings

March 14, 2011

The Advanced™ Metal Series AODD Pumps are available in a bolted design, providing paint and coatings operators with superior containment of products during the manufacturing and transfer of paint and coatings. The pumps are currently available in a bolted design on the PX200 25mm, PX400 38mm, and PX1500 76mm stainless steel or aluminum models. The bolted configuration on the AODD pumps deliver better leak resistance at higher pressures than traditional clamp-banded designs, according to the manufacturer. This is a crucial consideration in paint & coatings production where the products are often hard to seal, thick and viscous.
