Air Power Knows PUMPS
With over 50 years of experience, Customers in industrial manufacturing and processing industries such as automotive, aerospace, packaging, food and beverage, oil and natural gas and many others rely on Air Power’s expertise in liquid finishing, sealants and adhesives, lubrication, sanitary, fluid transfer, chemical injection and more.
Fewer Parts Equals Lower Cost
When it comes to pumps and pump maintenance, Air Power has found that certain manufacturers just work harder to design pumps to meet the needs of the many industries that use them. Only 10% of the total cost of a pump comes from initial purchase. Pumps with many small parts tend to cost more in the long run. A pump with fewer parts is more reliable and cost less in operation and repairs.
Peristaltic Pump is a positive displacement pump used for pumping a variety of fluids. These type pumps work by moving fluid inside a flexible tube. A rotor located inside the pump compresses the tube, pushing fluid through the pump. This type of pump is ideal for processes involving chemicals because the fluid is contained inside the tube throughout the pumping process. This minimizes any damage the chemical can cause to the pump itself, increasing the pump life and minimizing repair/operation costs.
Piston pump is a positive displacement pump where the high-pressure seal reciprocates with the piston. Piston pumps can be used to mine liquids or compress gases. They are also ideal for viscous fluids containing solid particles. Piston pumps are usually used in processes that require high, consistent pressure. The piston pump moves fluid by repeatedly enclosing a fixed volume, with aid of valves. These pumps are the longest lasting, most reliable pumps available.

Diaphragm pump is a positive displacement pump that uses a membrane and assortment of seals or valves to pump a fluid. These pumps are available with a variety of housings, balls, valves and seals. They can be customized to withstand any fluid, including corrosives and abrasives.
A Bellows pump is a positive displacement pump thats uses a bellows device to move fluid through a piping system. A bellows is a chamber that can be expanded or contracted by one external force. One side of the valve allows fluid in but not out. When the chamber is expanded, fluid is drawn in through the valve, and when the chamber is contracted, fluid is forced out through the nozzle. Bellows pumps can be manual or automatic and offer precision fluid metering with clean and quiet operation.
The Plunger pump is a special version of the piston pump. A retracting plunger creates a suction effect in the liquid end and opens the suction valve. The forward and backward movement of the plunger repeats itself continuously and opens or closes the valves. These pumps can be used in a wide variety of applications, and can be used 24 hours a day without interruption.
