AODD Pumps Keep the Chemical Industry Flowing

The variety of chemicals produced or used each year in manufacturing and treatment processes across the globe is staggering. The recipes for these chemical properties stretch from simple environmentally friendly compounds to highly toxic formulations requiring a massively diverse portfolio of products to address the complex range of chemical compatibility needs.

Chemical manufacturers face enormous environmental, safety and cost issues including:

  • Production leaks that can have severe health consequences to plant workers and damage the surrounding environment
  • Chemicals that are expensive to produce and high risk of lost revenue if there is inconsistent quality or contamination during production
  • Equipment costs for demanding chemical process applications can be extremely expensive and can have limited performance life

SANDPIPER – YOUR TRUSTED PARTNER FOR LIFE

SANDPIPER’s air-operated double-diaphragm (AODD) pumps are the pump of choice for chemical manufacturers requiring durable, reliable pumps that can stand up to extremely harsh environments. Available in a wide range of materials, the SANDPIPER chemical portfolio offers flexible configurations to address compositions and viscosities of even the harshest or most abrasive fluids, including thick sludges and slurries.

With its heavy-duty construction and bolted design, SANDPIPER chemical AODD pumps offer maximum flow rates with minimal air consumption and provide consistent, reliable performance in even the most challenging chemical manufacturing processes. SANDPIPER pumps can be easily installed, feature an unmatched range of sizes and porting positions and are simple to maintain and operate.

SANDPIPER Chemical Manufacturing Facility Overview: Sump Area

COMMONLY USED AODD CHEMICAL APPLICATIONS

  • Processing: Harsh abrasive materials like plastics, polymers, resins, glues, adhesives, pesticides, soaps, surfactants, cleaning products, acrylic acid, ammonia, sodium sulfide, paints, inks, coatings, petrochemicals, fertilizers, additives, lubricants, injection/blow molding
  • Safe Transfer & Mixing: Aggressive, high-risk or expensive chemical transfer, tank to tote transfer, mixing/blending/extruding applications requiring containment
  • Wastewater: Sumps and pits, dewatering, filter press, containment and run-off areas, water purification, water treatment, slurry
  • Aggressive Environmental Conditions: Dirty environmental air, explosive atmospheres, corrosive environments, temperature extremes, high suction lift requirements
  • Batching: Consistent delivery of uniformity across batch cycles, adaptable to a variety of batch recipes
  • Injection: Low solvent coatings transfer in dosing applications
  • Disinfectants: Manufacturing of sanitizers and other disinfectants, including water triethanol, glycerol/glycerin, water triethanolamine, and propylene glycol

“These are violent applications. Chemical blending companies don’t spend a lot of time in the process. They’re taking orders to blend chemicals and only focused on transfer volume from totes to trucks. You go into the plant and a 20 PSI pump is being run at 100 PSI, and they continue to survive. One chemical company says, “We won’t accept a non-SANDPIPER in our plant.”
