2020 marks a special year
Wilden, a worldwide producer of speciality pumps, is celebrating its 65-year anniversary.
Wilden was founded in 1955 by Jim Wilden in the US when he revolutionised the pumping industry by inventing the air-operated double-diaphragm (AODD) pump.
Since that time, Wilden has been recognised as one of the leaders in AODD pump technology for a wide range of applications in the energy, chemical, process, and water and wastewater industries.
Wilden became part of PSG in 2008, and now spans more than 160 countries with more than 180 distributors worldwide.
“At Wilden, being simple, reliable and efficient was ingrained into our DNA by our founder Jim Wilden,” said Erik Solfelt, diaphragm pump product director at Wilden.
“Incorporating these design qualities into every one of our solutions is key to bringing our brand promise to life, a promise that includes a commitment to the pursuit of excellence, customer satisfaction, innovation, research and development, and market knowledge.”
Launched in April 2020, the Wilden SafeGuard is the industry’s first AODD Internet of Things (IoT) enabled remote performance monitoring and alert system.
This all-inclusive pump-monitoring system remotely tracks, records and alerts customers to key performance indicators – such as leak detection, stroke rate and total stroke count – of AODD pumps during operation.
It provides real-time alerts via SMS or email to indicate any noteworthy change in operations that may be a precursor to or indicators of component failure.
“As the inventor of AODD technology, our pumps and accessories are unmatched in simplicity, reliability and efficiency,” said Solfelt.
