March 13, 2017 By P&PC Staff
Mar. 13, 2017 – Wilden has released ductile iron versions of its Advanced FIT air-operated double-diaphragm (AODD) pump, which it says is specifically designed to be direct replacements for existing pump installations, boasting bolted product containment, easier maintenance and more efficient operations.
Available with a range of elastomer options for severe applications, the pumps are offered in sizes from 38 mm (1-1/2 in.) to 76 mm (3 in.). According to the company, the Advanced FIT pumps fit bolt-to-bolt and pipe-to-pipe in existing fluid-handling piping systems that utilize competitor pumps or Wilden Original or Advanced pump models. The pumps promise “superior flow rates and easier installation compared to other brands,” and come equipped with the FIT wetted path that claims to minimize the number of fasteners and allows for single socket reassembly for “faster, easier maintenance.” The pumps are also equipped with the Pro-Flo SHIFT Air Distribution System (ADS), which the company says reduces air consumption by up to 60 per cent.
