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.

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.
