Features & Benefits

Wilden Air Operated Double Diaphragm Pumps are extremely versatile due to the following capabilities:

  • Ability to Run Dry – all pumps supplied by Wilden are able to run-dry without damage. This is a very useful feature to have when the pumping application may result in varying & inconsistent suction conditions
  • Ability to Self-Prime – this means that Wilden diaphragm pumps can be used as sump pumps & where positive suction conditions are not available
  • Ability to Pass Solids – the ball & seat/ check-valve design allows for the pump to pass solid particles. This is beneficial in a wide range of applications such as pumping slurries or food products with seeds
  • Variable Flowrate & Discharge Pressure – varying of air supply to the pump will vary the flowrate and/ or pressure that the pump produces; an inexpensive variable speed drive!
  • Seal-less/ Leak Free Design – no mechanical seal means that the pumps are totally contained & leak-free. A leak detector can be fitted to prevent leakage in the case of diaphragm failure
  • Ease of Maintenance – diaphragm pumps are simple, non-technical & require no specialist training for maintenance. There are no special clearances or tools required for pump repairs
  • Lube-free Operation – Wilden air motors do not require external lubrication for operation
  • Anti-Stalling/ Anti-Freezing Air Motor – the air valve is designed to be anti-stalling & anti-freezing; this assists allowing the pumps to be continuously operated.
  • Intrinsically Safe – no electrical power or auxiliary requirements meaning that a Wilden diaphragm pump is Intrinsically Safe and can be operated in many hazardous situations/ applications like underground coal mines.
  • Submersible Options – most models can be fully submerged. Refer to the operation manual for further information. When using a submersible pump, both the liquid path and external components must be compatible with material in which the pump will be submersed. Submersed pumps must have a hose attached to air exhaust and the exhaust piped above liquid level.

Elastomers

  • Neoprene: An excellent general purpose diaphragm for use in nonaggressive applications such as water-based slurries, well water or sea water. Exhibits excellent flex life and low cost.
  • Buna-N: Excellent for applications involving petroleum/oil-based fluids such as leaded gasoline, fuel oils, hydraulic oils, kerosene, turpentines and motor oils.
  • EPDM: Excellent for use in applications requiring extremely cold temperatures. It may also be used as a low cost alternative for pumping dilute acids or caustics.
  • Viton®: Excellent for use in applications requiring extremely hot temperatures. Viton® may also be used in aggressive fluids such as aromatic or chlorinated hydrocarbons and highly aggressive acids. PTFE would normally be used with these aggressive fluids as its flex life is better than Viton®; however, in applications involving suction lift outside the range of PTFE, Viton® will be the preferred choice for highly aggressive fluids.

Wilden DiaphragmsThermoplastic Elastomer (TPE)

  • Polyurethane: An excellent general purpose diaphragm for use in nonaggressive applications. This material exhibits exceptional flex life and durability. Wilden’s most economical diaphragm. Also available as part of Wilden’s EZ-Install flex-profile diaphragm line.
  • Wil-Flex™: Made of Santoprene™, this diaphragm is an excellent choice as a low cost alternative to PTFE in many acidic and caustic applications such as sodium hydroxide, sulfuric or hydrochloric acids. Wil-flex™ offers excellent abrasion resistance and durability, at a cost comparable to neoprene. Sanitary options include: full-stroke length Integral Piston Diaphragms (IPD) and a sanitary Wil-Flex™ material with a special flex profile allowing for an “easy install.”
  • Saniflex™: Made of Hytrel®, this diaphragm exhibits excellent abrasion resistance, flex life and durability. This material is FDA approved for food processing applications. This outstanding general purpose diaphragm is also available as part of the Wilden’s EZ-Install flex-profile diaphragm line.
  • Geolast®: Equivalent to nitrile (Buna-N), this diaphragm is an injection-moulded material that is an excellent choice for applications requiring enhanced oil resistance. This material exhibits exceptional performance for a variety of fluids.

PTFE Elastomers

  • PTFE: Excellent choice when pumping highly aggressive fluids such as aromatic or chlorinated hydrocarbons, acids, caustics, ketones and acetates. Wilden’s legacy PTFE diaphragms exhibit good flex life; and now Wilden has coupled its knowledge of PTFE with over 55 years of diaphragm testing to bring a “full-stroke” length option for maximum yield and high suction lift, for the world’s toughest applications.
  • Wilden also offers PTFE integral piston diaphragms that offer superior product containment. The smooth contoured shape makes this diaphragm an excellent choice for sanitary or ultra-pure applications.

Accessories

The Wilden diaphragm pump range is ably supported by a range of accessories that complement air operated diaphragm pump function & capability. Wilden’s accessory products add value to your liquid process and expand the application range of Wilden diaphragm pumps by augmenting the performance and/or utility of the pump. Our electronic controllers automate your Wilden pump for batching and other electronically controlled dispensing applications. We can also create laminar process flow by eliminating pump pulsation or control the liquid level within a system of process.

SD Equalizer® Surge Dampener

Wilden SD Equalizer Surge Damperner An inherent characteristic of reciprocating pumps is the pressure change between each pump stroke. The Equalizer® can be used to provide a supplementary pumping action between pump strokes, thus minimising pressure fluctuation while offering protection to your pumping system. The Equalizer® reduces water hammer, absorbs acceleration head, lowers system maintenance costs and minimises pipe strain protecting in-line equipment. Sizes available are SD1⁄2 13mm (1⁄2") inlet/discharge, SD1 25 mm (1") inlet/discharge, SD2 51 mm (2") inlet/discharge and SD3 76 mm (3") inlet/discharge.

WILDEN Drum Pump Kit

Wilden Drum Pump Kit The inherent features of the Wilden air-operated pump and Accu-Flo™ pump technology allow it to excel as a utilitarian drum pump. Various speed and pressure capability, the ability to run dry, self-prime and dead-head offers you flexibility at a low cost. The Wilden universal drum pump kit enables Wilden ¼” and ½” pumps to adapt directly to drums for cost-effective, efficient liquid transfer.

  • Universal kit for 6 mm (1/4") and 13 mm (1/2") pumps
  • Fits 51 mm (2") NPT bungholes
  • Tube length can be cut to length
  • Variety of materials are available

WILDEN Wil-Gard III

Wilden Wil-Gard 3 The Wil-Gard™ detects diaphragm failure at the source: the primary diaphragm, not at the air chamber or the air exhaust as other systems do.

  • Sensors are located between the primary and back-up (containment) diaphragms.
  • When the sensors detect a conductive liquid, an audible alarm, LED and an internal latching relay are activated.
  • Increase containment, reduce fugitive emissions and reduce downtime with 24-hour pump surveillance.
  • Power requirement: 110V AC, 220V AC or 9V DC battery

WILDEN Pump Cycle Monitor

Wilden Wil-Gard 3 The PCMI counts pump cycles by sensing the presence of the air valve piston (Turbo-Flo™) or air valve spool (Pro-Flo™).

  • The sensor, located at the air valve and cap, detects the presence of a magnet located at the end of the air valve piston/spool
  • The PCMI registers a complete pump cycle when the piston/spool shifts away from the sensor and subsequently returns to the original position.
  • The PCMI unit has a reset switch located on the face of the PCMI module.
  • PCMI has the ability to be reset from a remote location.
