AODD Pumps In Challenging ETP Applications

By December 3, 2020February 2nd, 2021Technology Blog

AODD or Air Operated Double Diaphragm Pumps can be used in various challenging pumping applications in an ETP ie. Effluent Treatment Plant.

Diaphragm pumps are used in many Industrial ETPs due to their ability to handle high viscosity solid laden fluids. They can also help to pump polymers, acids, caustics and slurries. Below are some of the applications in which it can be used.

In the water treatment industry, diaphragm pumps are used in industrial and municipal wastewater treatment plants. Some fluids that are put into the pumps from wastewater treatment plants are high in viscosity and require pumps that can handle those liquids. Air operated double diaphragm pumps also help to pump polymers, acids, caustics and slurries during the water treatment process that are used to treat water.

The below video can provide a detailed explanation of the various applications for which these pumps can be used in an ETP
