A major benefit of air-operated double-diaphragm (AODD) pumps for manufacturing paint and other coatings is their ability to handle a variety of fluids, including oil, ethanol and even hazardous chemicals such as ammonia or biocides. In addition to these harsh environments, AODDs are excellent at gentle, low-shear pumping which does not damage precious materials. AODD pumps in the coatings industry can also pump the clumps that form during milling and filtration when resins, solids and pigments come together to make paint and other coatings.
Selecting the right pump guarantees an efficient production process that spans unloading raw materials, tank storage, transferring, milling, filtration, straining and filling machines. A pump’s flow rate, resistance to abrasive materials and the ability to adjust to changing back pressures from the straining operations will ensure a trouble-free production line with minimal unplanned maintenance.
The growing trend of biocide-free paints is changing the manufacturing requirements across the paint industry as hazardous materials are removed from the process. This trend toward safety requires new and different pumping technologies. SANDPIPER’s broad portfolio of AODD pumps and our deep market knowledge can help you select the perfect pump even with these changing requirements:
