ARO, a brand of Ingersoll Rand, will showcase a variety of pumping solutions, ranging from air operated double diaphragm pumps to piston pumps, and filters, regulators and lubricators, at the Achema show in Frankfurt, Germany. The event runs from 11th – 15th June.

The company will present its line of Exp Series pumps, which are ‘process and automation ready.’ ARO says that the pumps include electronic interface capability that eliminates potentially inaccurate manual processes and replaces them with more accurate, automated operation.

According to ARO, these automated processes are ideal for batching and filling applications in a number of markets, such as chemical processing, paint and ink formulation, wastewater and more.

All of the Exp Series pumps boast connection points which operators can use to upgrade their pump. Process ready upgrade options include:

  • an End of Stroke (EOS) output that signals the completion of each pump stroke and monitors the number of cycles
  • leak detection capabilities to notify the operator when there is diaphragm failure 
  • an electric solenoid pump control valve to effectively manage cycle rates and pump flow

ARO will also present the new EXP Series 3-inch non-metallic diaphragm pump for the first time at Achema 2018. Designed for high volume transfer in industrial, chemical processing and water treatment applications, ARO claims the EXP Series 3-inch pump can be more efficient against 2-inch models under certain operating conditions, and offers longer diaphragm life due to slower cycling. Additionally, the ARO EXP Series 3-inch pump is compatible with harsh chemicals that require a gentler stroke to prevent damage to fluid that can happen with smaller capacity, high-pressure pumps.

ARO will be exhibiting at Stand L37 in Hall 8 of the Achema event.
