How do AODD Pumps work?

Air-Operated Double Diaphragm Pumps (AODD Pumps) are positive displacement pumps that use compressed air to power a reciprocating motion of two flexible diaphragms. As the diaphragms move back and forth, they create suction on one side and discharge on the other, allowing the pump to move liquids, gases and slurries. The AODD Pumps are dry running so they will not be damaged if left on with no fluid running through.

Reasons to buy AODD pumps:
