Wilden Releases New Saniflo Hygienic Series Double Diaphragm Pumps
Wilden, a pump manufacturer, announces the new Saniflo Hygienic Series (HS) original metal air-operated double-diaphragm pump models. The new models utilize the energy-efficient Pro-Flo Shift Air Distribution System (ADS) which meets industry requirements for use in many different hygienic applications.
“The new Pro-Flo Shift Saniflo HS series will bring the efficiency, cost savings, and performance benefits of the Shift Air Distribution system to the food processing and bio-pharmaceutical industries that previously had to rely on less effective technology,” says Chris Distaso, Director of Engineering for Wilden. “Not only does the new Shift Saniflo series provide exceptional performance, but its clamped design ensures ease of maintenance and convenient clean-in-place and clean-out-of-place capabilities.”
The Pro-Flo Shift ADS was launched in June 2013 and allows Wilden Advanced and Original AODD pumps to achieve as much as a 60% savings in air consumption over their competitors, while providing additional product yield per standard cubic foot per minute. The new technology dramatically improves energy efficiency, is submersible, and features plug-and-play operation. It can be used in harsh operating environments, including potentially explosive atmospheres. The Pro-Flo Shift ADS uses fewer operating parts, while its unique design prevents overfilling. The life of the diaphragm is therefore prolonged, noise is reduced, and less maintenance and repairs are needed, which reduces downtime and offers a lower total cost to the operators.
The double diaphragm pumps are available in 316 stainless steel and nickel-plated aluminum in various sizes that include 38mm, 51mm, and 76 mm. Each model features maximum discharge pressures of up to 8.6 bar, maximum flow rates of 844 lpm, and solid-handling of sizes up to 60.3mm. Wilden Pro-Flo Shift Saniflo HS series pumps are also available with suction lifts of up to 5.4m in dry conditions and 9.0m in wet conditions.
