Efficient Gadget: AODD Accessories Boost Pump Efficiency
EP Editorial Staff | March 7, 2013
Warren Rupp’s SANDPIPER brand has launched a new, improved line of Air Filter/Regulators and Lubricators for air-operated double-diaphragm (AODD) pumps. Features include a liquid-filled pressure gauge, as well as accessories such as lockout valves and mounting bracket kits.
These point-of-use Air Filter/Regulators have been specifically developed to reduce maintenance and lower operating costs. The addition of a Filter/Regulator will help prevent dirty, wet and contaminated compressed air from decreasing the performance of an AODD unit, and SANDPIPER recommends the use of these items with all of their pumps. Although the company’s AODD pumping equipment is designed to operate without lubrication, in applications with poor-quality air supplies or where nitrogen runs the pump, lubrication of the compressed air is required. For these situations, SANDPIPER offers a full-line of Lubricators that easily connect to its Filter/Regulators.
