Air-Operated Double-Diaphragm pumps are a type of positive displacement pump which consists of two pumping chambers that are alternately filled and discharged by the movement of flexible diaphragms. Compressed air is alternately fed to, and vented from, air chambers on the opposite sides of the diaphragms to create the pumping action.

Typical applications for AODD pumps
AODD pumps are typically utilised for transfer applications and have the ability to handle a range of material such as sludges, slurries, abrasive and shear sensitive fluids. Although they are robust, reliable and easy to maintain they tend to be relatively noisy, prone to icing, and are limited to low pressure applications.
