In the dynamic landscape of industrial applications, the demand for reliable and versatile pumping solutions has never been higher. Wilden has emerged as a frontrunner in providing a comprehensive range of Air-Operated Double Diaphragm (AODD) pumps, catering to an extensive array of industries, from food and wine to oil refineries and chemical applications. This blog post will delve into Wilden's commitment to offering pumps that not only meet the unique requirements for your application, but can also save you money and time from costly replacements and repairs.

Diverse Applications:

One of the standout features of Wilden's AODD pumps is their adaptability to a wide range of applications. Whether it's the gentle transfer of wine, the strict handling of medication or the robust transfer of corrosive chemicals in manufacturing plants, these pumps have proven their efficacy across various sectors. This versatility is achieved through meticulous engineering and a commitment to understanding the specific needs of each application. Choosing the correct elastomers, metal housing, and plastics will save you time and money. Good thing Wilden has the best and widest selection of combinations to choose from!

Food and Beverage Industries:

One key area where Wilden excels is in providing AODD pumps that meet the stringent requirements set by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). In the food and beverage industry, where maintaining product integrity is paramount, these pumps are designed with materials and construction that comply with FDA regulations. A combination of stainless-steel housing and Saniflex™ Diaphragms for example, ensures that the pumping system complies with FDA CFR 21.177 standards and does not compromise the quality of the products being transferred.

Chemicals and Corrosives: Preventing Degradation

The heart of any AODD pump lies in its diaphragms, and the choice of elastomers for these diaphragms plays a pivotal role in the pump's performance, lifespan, and overall safety. Wilden recognizes the significance of selecting the right materials for elastomers, considering the diverse range of fluids being pumped in various industries. In corrosive environments such as chemical processing plants, the diaphragms of AODD pumps are exposed to harsh chemicals that can lead to premature degradation if not properly addressed. Wilden offers a range of elastomers that are resistant to chemical corrosion, ensuring the longevity of the pump and minimizing the need for frequent replacements.


Wilden stands as a beacon of innovation in the realm of AODD pumps, offering solutions that not only meet the diverse needs of industries but also adhere to the strictest regulatory standards. The careful selection of elastomers for diaphragms underscores the company's commitment to providing reliable, safe, and efficient pumping solutions. Whether it's the delicate handling of fine wines or the robust transfer of chemicals, Wilden's AODD pumps are setting new benchmarks for versatility and performance across industries. Please view the official resources provided below to find the best configuration of pump components that are compatible with hundreds of different fluids, foods, and chemicals. Choosing the right pump from the start will help you avoid problems and allow you to Keep on Pumping!
