Wilden's PS20 102 mm (4 in) metal AODD Pump is equipped with the Pro-Flo Shift Air Distribution System (ADS) and its clamped configuration is designed for easier maintenance, diaphragm replacement and cleaning.

Wilden’s patent-pending Pro-Flo SHIFT ADS incorporates a 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 could lower energy and operating costs, achieving up to 60% savings over competitive AODD pump technologies.

Center block materials

The Wilden PS20 has a cast iron wetted path and is available with center block materials in aluminum, polypropylene or stainless steel. Meeting CE and ATEX requirements, the pump features maximum discharge pressures to 8.6 bar (125 psig), maximum flow rates to 1048 lpm (277 gpm), and maximum suction lifts to 4.4 m (14.4 ft) dry and 8.6 m (28.4 ft) wet. Diaphragms are available in Buna-N, EPDM, Geolast, Neoprene, Polyurethane, PTFE, Saniflex, Viton® and Wil-Flex.
