Wilden, part of PSG, a Dover company has launched the PS1 Original 13 mm (½ inch) clamped metal AODD pump equipped with the Pro-Flo Shift Air Distribution System (ADS).
This pump features the reliability and energy savings of the Pro-Flo Shift ADS while its clamped configuration allows for easier maintenance, diaphragm replacement and cleaning.
The Wilden Pro-Flo Shift ADS incorporates an Air Control Spool that automatically restricts the amount of air going into the pump during the latter part of each stroke, which eliminates over-filling of the air chamber and results in reduced energy consumption. By optimizing air consumption, the Pro-Flo Shift lowers energy and operating costs.
The footprint of the PS1 Original matches that of the Wilden PX1 Original, which enables direct replacement of a PX1 Original with no repiping necessary. With less components (no dial) and 7% more efficiency than the PX1 Original, the backward capability of the PS1 Original makes it an easy, cost-effective way to enhance and upgrade existing pump performance. PS1 Original pumps are shear sensitive and intrinsically safe with self-priming and dry-run capabilities, and offer the longest mean time between repair (MTBR), superior anti-freezing and increased on/off reliability.
