Wilden® Pro-Flo® SHIFT AODD Pump Outperforms Competitor In Head-To-Head Test
PT. IndoChemical Citra Kimia operates three facilities in Jakarta, Indonesia, that annually manufacture more than 300 million liters (79.2 million gallons) of paint, coatings, inks, glues and adhesives. In an effort to identify pumps that can most effectively help it save air consumption and energy costs, IndoChem conducted a head-to-head test with a new Wilden® Pro-Flo® SHIFT AODD Pump and a competitive model.
This video shows how the Pro-Flo SHIFT pump easily outperformed the competitor by loading a 45,000-liter tank 21% faster while using 17.3% less air—with potential per-year air-consumption savings of more than $25,000 if all 60 of IndoChem’s AODD pumps were switched out with Pro-Flo SHIFT models.
