GRAND TERRACE, CA – Wilden®, part of Dover Corp.’s Pump Solutions Group, announced that its Pro-Flo® SHIFT is a winner of Flow Control Magazine’s 2014 Innovation Award. The award recognizes the top new technologies in flow control and movement for their contributions to the industry.
The new Wilden Pro-Flo SHIFT represents an innovation in energy efficiency within the AODD pump category. With its design, the pump’s air distribution system (ADS) allows Wilden AODD pumps to achieve up to a 60% savings in air consumption over competitive AODD pump technologies, while providing more product yield per standard cubic foot per minute of air used. While the pump improves energy efficiency, it also costs 50% less than electronically actuated ADS, is submersible and features plug-and-play operation with no learning period. Its robust design makes it ideal for use in harsh operating environments and includes ATEX compliance for use in potentially explosive atmospheres.
