Wilden®, the worldwide leader in air-operated double-diaphragm (AODD) pump technology, has a well-deserved reputation of producing pumps that have the capability to operate efficiently and safely even in the most rugged of conditions. The mining industry is the working definition of "rugged" and Wilden has considered the challenges associated with mining operations and designed its Advanced™ Series Metal AODD pumps with the characteristics necessary to effectively handle mining operations.
Advanced pumps are able to excel in mining operations where large solids and abrasives often must be handled because of the unique set of features that they have, including: superior flow rates; superior product containment; bolted liquid paths; self-priming and dry-run capabilities; anti-freezing technology; variable flow and pressure rates; lube-free operation; and ease of operation and maintenance.
Users of Advanced pumps also benefit from Wilden’s patented Pro-Flo X air distribution system (ADS), which offers operational flexibility in mining applications. This flexibility is accomplished by the state-of-the-art Efficiency Management System (EMS), which optimizes the Pro-Flo X ADS for the actual operation parameters regardless of the application demands or pump size. The EMS allows the operator to use an integrated control dial to select the efficiency point and flow rate that best suits the application. The Pro-Flo X with EMS provides mine operators with the most efficient AODD pump solutions available. The results, in addition to lower energy costs, are higher performance, lower operational costs and performance flexibility that goes beyond what is considered the industry standard.
