Since the take-over of ARO by Ingersoll-Rand, the air operated diaphragm pumps of Ingersoll-Rand are still called ARO pumps in popular speech, because they enjoyed an excellent reputation with that brand name. ARO diaphragm pumps are suitable as continuous process pump for pumping the most diverse fluids with a light to medium viscosity, even if these possibly contain harmful parts.
Since Ingersoll-Rand ARO diaphragm pumps are powered mechanically, they can also be used in explosion hazardous areas. Most ARO diaphragm pumps are ATEX certified. The pumps work safely without overpessure valve or pipe. Their patented “Unstallable” unbalanced air valve design avoids stalling and freezing issues.
The fluid output and pressure in Ingersoll-Rand ARO diaphragm pumps can be set from very slowly to extremely fast (1 to 1040 liter per minute). Partly due to the broad range in materials of construction, diaphragm pumps are frequently used in the chemical and foodstuff industry. You get a 5 year factory warranty for all ARO diaphragm pumps.
