Versa-Matic is the manufacturer name to trust for the best in air-operated double-diaphragm pumps, or AODD pumps. Available in Canada through York Fluid Controls, this portfolio includes a line of high-pressure pumps. These are specialty diaphragm pumps that provide more options in terms of size, pressure, flow rates, construction material, and functionality.
These high-pressure pumps by Versa-Mastic are ideal for any pump applications that require discharge pressure higher than 125 pounds per square inch (psi).
With two air chambers
What distinguishes this group of high-pressure diaphragm pumps is that each uses two air chambers to create additional pressure. This way, these pumps can provide pressures of up to 232 psi.
York Fluid Controls supplies two models of Versa-Matic bolted metal high-pressure pumps: a one-inch (25 millimetres) size and a two-inch (51 millimetres) size. The one-inch model offers enhanced power for specialty applications in which pressure is paramount and flow rate is critical, like filter press feeds, mine dewatering, or slurry transfer. This pump is available in aluminum or stainless steel and has a non-stalling, non-icing air-valve system, which prevents air leaks.
With its two air chambers, the one-inch unit achieves flow rates of up to 125 litres per minute, and its full-flow design incorporates an additional air chamber to deliver even higher flow rates with less pulsation, resulting in less wear on pipes and fittings. This AODD pump can also start at zero head pressure, with no damage to diaphragms nor any need for a separate fill pump.
The Versa-Matic two-inch high-pressure AODD pump is also ideal for filter press feeds, mine dewatering, and slurry transfer – as well as any other specialty applications in which pressure is a concern. This model can deliver a standard flow rate as high as 341 litres per minute. Like the one-inch version, it is available in stainless steel or aluminum construction; in addition, it uses a patented air-valve system for non-stalling, non-icing, and lube-free operation.
When industrial applications need additional discharge pressure, a standard AODD pump will not do. Trust Versa-Matic for the right high-pressure diaphragm pumps.
