Wilden® Pro-Flo® SHIFT Air Distribution System (ADS) Now Available In Stainless Steel & Plastic
Wilden®, a worldwide leader in air-operated double-diaphragm (AODD) pump technology, is pleased to announce that its energy-efficient Pro-Flo® SHIFT Air Distribution System (ADS) is now available in 316 stainless steel and polypropylene plastic materials of construction, joining the original aluminum and nickel-plated aluminum offerings.
Wilden® Debuts Next-Generation FDA Sanitary AODD Pumps Powered by Pro-Flo® SHIFT ADS
Powered by the just-released stainless steel version of the energy-efficient Pro-Flo® SHIFT Air Distribution System (ADS), the newly-announced models of Wilden’s Saniflo™ FDA sanitary AODD pumps provide sustainable value and operational cost savings.
Unveiled at 2014 PACK EXPO, the new Wilden SHIFT Saniflo FDA pumps feature 316 stainless steel wetted parts, tri-clamps for compatibility with sanitary piping systems, significant energy savings, long life and simplified maintenance.
“The Pro-Flo SHIFT ADS has won multiple innovation awards for its energy savings, performance and efficiency,” said Carrie Halle, PSG Director of Marketing, Americas. “Previously the Pro-Flo SHIFT has been available only on Wilden’s Original™, Advanced™ and Advanced FIT series pumps. Now, with the release of the stainless steel version for Saniflo, Wilden is able to offer the most energy-efficient AODD pump in its class for sanitary applications.”
Wilden’s patent-pending Pro-Flo SHIFT ADS incorporates a unique 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 lowers energy and operating costs, achieving up to 60% savings over competitive AODD pump technologies.

Available in 38mm (1.5”), 51mm (2”) and 76mm (3”) inlet/outlet sizes, various models of the Pro-Flo SHIFT Saniflo FDA pumps will be available for compliance with industry standards, such as FDA CFR 21.177, USP Class VI, 1935/2004/EC, CE and ATEX requirements. Diaphragms will be available in Buna-N, EPDM, PTFE, Saniflex™ and Wil-Flex™.
The new Pro-Flo SHIFT Saniflo FDA pumps will be available in Q4 2014.

Gas-Turbine Engine Servicer Optimizes Efficiency With Wilden® Pro-Flo® SHIFT ADS
Since 1998, a prominent gas-turbine engine servicer in the commercial airline, military and power industries that is based in The Netherlands has been a satisfied user of Wilden® Original™ Series Air-Operaqted Double-Diaphragm (AODD) for the continuous transfer of cooling fluids that help keep repair and refinishing machinery operating safely. When John Bollebakker, Manger of Maintenance and Facilities, was told that he needed to enhance the energy efficiency of his operations at the plant, he turned to the innovative Pro-Flo® SHIFT Air Distribution System (ADS), which he had installed on the plant's eight existing Wilden pumps. By using the Pro-Flo SHIFT ADS, air-consumption rates can be reduced by as much as 60% and the plant was able to recoup the cost of the Pro-Flo SHIFTs via energy savings in 12 months.
