The outbreak of COVID-19 has had a harsh impact on the global economy as the pandemic has impacted various industries, such as oil & gas, mining, manufacturing, water & wastewater, construction, and automotive, significantly. The countries around the world have imposed lockdown restrictions, which have not only disrupted the supply chain of goods and materials and market demand but also resulted in the declining production rates and shutting down of manufacturing sites.
Water & wastewater treatment plants collect sewage and other waste products from industrial sources and treat them to purify the water that would be used in agriculture and other industries. Rapid urbanization and the rising population leading to the growing demand for water resources are the factors that are influencing the demand for wastewater treatment plants globally.
Although several improvements have been made in the pump's air distribution over the past few years, the operation of AODD(Air Operated Double Diaphragm) pumps has remained the same in the last six decades. Despite the relatively low cost of AODD pumps, they end up costing about 4-5 times more to the operator than an electric-powered pump as it is powered by air.
An intelligent pump can manipulate and control the flow through a pump. Intelligent pumps are known for their capability of energy saving, cost reductions, and increased lifespan. AODD pumps have a significant superiority over the other types of pumps.
A ball valve uses a hollow, perforated, and pivoting ball to control the flow and is in the form of a quarter-turn. The ball valve is open when the flow is in line with the ball’s hole, and it is closed when the hole is pivoted 90 degrees.
A double diaphragm pump has four fluid check valves, two inlet check valves, and two outlet check valves. The check valves control the fluid through the fluid manifolds and housings of the pump. Additionally, flap-type check valves can easily pass large solids entrained within the pumped fluid.
Aluminum AODD pumps are mostly used in applications such as workshops and the paint, mining, construction, chemical, and ceramic industries. Generally, aluminum pumps provide flows up to 60 m3/hr or 265 GPM and can handle a pressure of up to 10 bar or 145 PSI.
Cast iron-based AODD pumps are suitable for various applications within industries, including pulp & paper, wastewater, ceramics, construction, mining, shipping, and water & wastewater.
These types of AODD pumps are mainly used in applications in the food processing, cosmetics, and pharmaceutical industries. AODD pumps made of stainless steel are highly resistant to temperature, corrosion, and pressure.
The others include PTFE, PVDF, Polypropylene (PP), and Polyethylene (PE). In AODD pumps, for high viscosity, heavy valve balls made of polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) are needed to rise and fall in the thick fluid. PVDF AODD pumps are mainly used for chemical transfer in a textile manufacturing plant. AODD pumps made from polypropylene are portable and easy to maintain, dismantle, repair, and operate. Polyethylene AODD pumps are corrosion-resistant, making them ideal for corrosive and abrasive chemicals.
These AODD pumps operate at a discharge pressure of up to 5 bar. The major features of this kind of AODD pump are strong construction, complete flow control, no electricity required, and self-priming up to 5m from dry suction pipe.
These AODD pumps operate at a discharge pressure between 5 bar to 10 bar. The major functions of these pumps include liquid transfer, filter-feeding, de-watering, circulation, slurry handling, spray supply, and batching & mixing, among others.
These AODD pumps operate at a discharge pressure of above 10 bar. These pumps are ideal for applications requiring low pulsation and smooth flow and are available in various materials such as aluminum, ductile iron, stainless steel, and PVDF.
These pumps are generally used for low pressure and low flow rate requirements. They generally transfer the fluids in any system. The key end users of the less than 1” air operated double diaphragm pumps are the energy & power, oil & gas, and water & wastewater industries.
The effective operation of any process plant and any industry involves the highest level of measurement and pump performance to ensure the proper transfer of fluids. A correctly sized pump can provide significant outputs, increase process reliability, and reduce process variability and maintenance costs.
The AODD pumps included under the above 2” segment are used to regulate the flow in the fluid control system. They are generally used in applications where high pressure and regulated fluid flow are required.
AODD pumps are used in the chemical industry as they are suitable for transferring chemical fluids owing to their versatile nature and ability to withstand harsh environments. Other major features of air operated double diaphragm pumps that make them suitable for the chemical industry are safe & leak-free bolted construction.
AODD pumps are widely used in providing innovative and efficient effluent and sewage pump systems. These pumps are designed for applications such as pumping raw materials, sump & tank drainage, desalination plants, and storm water drainage.
In the oil and gas industry, the air operated double diaphragm pumps are probably best known as an effective method for artificially lifting production fluids to the surface. These pumps are effective in wells with low bottom hole pressure, low gas to oil ratio, high water cut, or low American Petroleum Institute (API) gravity fluids.
The demand for pharmaceuticals is growing due to the increasing demand for pharmaceutical drugs in the global market. AODD pumps in pharmaceutical industries are used to centrally lead the flow of any fluid in the manufacturing processes, including milling and tablet pressing.
The marine industry has a major contribution to the world economy. In the marine industry, air operated double diaphragm pumps are used mostly in applications such as ships, boats, cargos, oil rigs, submarines, and vessels.
Paper & pulp is a key end-use industry where air operated double diaphragm pumps are used for transferring additives, ink & paint, and special chemicals. AODD pumps are used in the paper & pulp industry possess varied functions that make them suitable for different applications.
AODD pumps are used in the food & beverage industry for various food processing applications. These pumps are used to transfer food products such as tomato pulp, chocolate, ham pulp, soft drinks, pet food, yeast, vinegar eggs, honey, vitamins, and aromas.
