WILDEN Air Operated Diaphragm pumps are widely respected as the most versatile pump on the market today. Air powered, these pumps are able to pump thick and thin liquids, solids laden and abrasive liquids and can dry run, dead-head and work submerged or dry mounted.
Who are Wilden? A bit of a backstory… In 1955, one man revolutionized the pumping industry when he invented the air-operated double diaphragm (AODD) pump.
Wilden Pump & Engineering Company began in a walnut grove in San Bernardino County, CA, through the genius of this man – Jim Wilden.
The epiphany began in 1955 when a large water pipe ruptured several feet below ground, flooding a shop at a steel factory. Amid the bedlam, a cool-headed foreman surveyed the inundated workshop and drenched workmen and yelled out to “Slim,” Jim’s nickname, “Hey, Slim, you would make a million dollars if you could invent a pump to get this stuff out of here.” And thus history was set in motion, changing the landscape of industrial and commercial processes forever.
Jim went on to invent the air-operated double-diaphragm (AODD) pump based on the need to create a pump tough enough to handle the job of pumping water, slurry and any other finely-divided substances, such as cement. His engineering genius developed a new type of pump that had the right air valve and diaphragms needed to meet the stringent demands of the mining and heavy-construction industries. After years of trial and error, Jim Wilden began successfully manufacturing and selling M16 and M14 model AODD pumps.
Since that time, Wilden®, a PSG Dover Company, has forged a long-lasting legacy as the global leader in AODD pump technology. Thanks to a dedication to pioneering new innovations while providing unparalleled excellence in customer satisfaction, Wilden’s family of AODD pumps is unmatched in reliability, durability, efficiency, and performance.
Wilden’s commitment to the customer is undoubtedly the reason why they are the market leaders in the industry. They listen to the comments of engineers, maintenance personnel, and end users to develop general and specialized products to meet your needs.
Remember: there are many AODD pumps on the market that strive to be Wilden – but only one market leader.
