York Fluid Controls Ltd. supplies a full selection of air-operated double-diaphragm (AODD) pumps manufactured by Versa-Matic. The lineup includes a series of high-pressure diaphragm pumps – which are innovative specialty units that offer more options in terms of size, pressure, flow rates, construction material, and functionality. These high-pressure pumps are the perfect choice for any pumping tasks that need discharge pressure that is higher than 125 pounds per square inch (psi).
Enhanced power for specialty applications
This series of high-pressure diaphragm pumps sets itself apart by using two air chambers in each model to create extra pressure. This way, the pump can provide pressure as high as 232 psi. Versa-Matic makes two types of bolted metal high-pressure pumps – a one-inch (25 millimetres) size and a two-inch (51 millimetres) size. The one-inch version provides enhanced power for filter press feeds, mine dewatering, slurry transfer, and other specialty applications in which pressure is crucial and flow rate is paramount. This pumps comes in aluminum or stainless steel and includes a non-stalling, non-icing air-valve system that prevents air leaks.
The one-inch unit achieves flow rates of up to 125 litres a minute with its two air chambers, and its full-flow design incorporates an extra air chamber to deliver even higher flow rates with lower pulsation, resulting in reduced wear on fittings and pipes. This AODD pump from York Fluid Controls can also start at zero head pressure, without any damage to diaphragms or any need for a separate fill pump.
The two-inch high-pressure AODD pump is also perfect for filter press feeds, mine dewatering, and slurry transfer, in addition to any other specialty tasks in which pressure is an issue. This model can deliver a standard flow rate of up to 341 litres a minute. Like the one-inch pump, it is available in stainless steel or aluminum construction, and it also uses a patented air-valve system for non-stalling, non-icing, and lube-free operation.
A standard AODD pump is not enough for industrial applications that require extra discharge pressure. For the right high-pressure diaphragm pump, trust Versa-Matic.
