Air operated diaphragms pumps (also known as pneumatic diaphragm pumps, AODD pumps, AOD pumps) are used for endless applications in mining, industrial and general plant service.
Air Operated Double Diaphragm Pumps are especially used where electricity isn’t available, or in explosive or flammable areas. They are also used for chemical transfer, de-watering underground coal mines, food manufacturing or where the liquid being pumped has a high solids content or high viscosity.
The Wilden pumps family of Air Operated Double Diaphragm Pumps has proven its rugged durability and reliable performance in countless installations across the world for decades. As the inventor of the Air Operated Double Diaphragm Pump in 1955, Wilden pumps remain a trustworthy industry leader by pioneering new innovations while providing unparalleled excellence in customer satisfaction.
Allied Pumps is the sole authorised Wilden pump distributor for Western Australia.
The centrifugal pump is the most used pump type in the world. The principle is simple, well-described and thoroughly tested, and the pump is robust, effective and relatively inexpensive to produce.
An increase in the fluid pressure from the pump inlet to its outlet is created when the pump is in operation. This pressure difference drives the fluid through the system or plant. The centrifugal pump creates an increase in pressure by transferring mechanical energy from the motor to the fluid through the rotating impeller. The fluid flows from the inlet to the impeller centre and out along its blades. The centrifugal force hereby increases the fluid velocity and consequently also the kinetic energy is transformed to pressure.
Allied Pumps distributes many different types of centrifugal pumps, including ANSI centrifugal pumps, to suit a wide range of applications in building services, industry, petro-chemical, food and marine uses, with major manufacturers including Griswold, Corde, Grundfos and Ebara.

Gear pumps are a type of rotary positive displacement pump, meaning they pump a constant amount of fluid for each revolution. Gear pumps transfer fluid by gears coming in and out of mesh to create a non-pulsating pumping action.
Gear pumps are able to pump at high pressures and excel at pumping high viscosity liquids efficiently. There are no valves in a gear pump to cause friction losses and also high impeller velocities, with resultant friction losses, are not required as in a centrifugal pump. Therefore a gear pump is well suited for handling viscous liquids such as fuel and lubricating oils. Gear pumps are not suited for pumping solids and abrasive liquids.
Internal and external gear pumps are the two basic types of gear pumps. Both the internal and external gear pumps have an idler gear that is driven by the driving gear and both use the same method of gears coming in and out of mesh to create a pumping action. The main differences between the two gear pumps are the placement of the gears and where the fluid is trapped.
Allied Pumps carries brands such as Envirogear, Ebsray and Corde-KGC and offers a wide range of gear pumps, and has experience and expertise in hundreds of different applications of this type of pump.
Helical rotor pumps, also known as progressive cavity pumps or cavity pumps, are a type of rotary positive displacement pump that has a single threaded helically shaped rotor turning inside of a double-threaded helically shaped rubber stator. This produces a progressing cavity that moves the liquid through the pump and creates the pumping action.
Helical rotor pumps are used extensively in sewerage and water treatment plants to pump polymer, sludge and chemicals. They are also used in all types of industrial applications for pumping a wide variety of thin and thick liquids, including corrosive liquids and liquids containing solids.
As progressive cavity pumps can handle difficult, thick and solid laden liquids, they can often be used in applications where no other pump would perform.
Allied Pumps carries brands such as Roto Pumps and offers a wide range of helical rotor pumps and spare parts, and has experience and expertise in hundreds of different applications of this type of pump.
Since 1952, Finder Pumps has been a leader in the design and manufacture of upstream, midstream and downstream pumping solutions to the oil & gas market worldwide.

A magnetic drive pump uses a balanced magnetic field to create the rotation of the fluid impeller. Unlike a traditional centrifugal pump which has a direct drive connection between impeller and motor, a mag-drive pump eliminates the direct drive mechanism and replaces it with a magnetic field.
Allied Pumps has extensive knowledge in supplying and servicing magnetic drive pumps such as M Pumps and Gemmecotti which Allied Pumps is the importer and distributor.
Peristaltic pumps (also known as hose pumps, tube pumps) are a type of positive displacement pump which are widely used in water treatment, chemical processing and food processing industries. It creates a steady flow for dosing and blending and is able to pump a variety of fluids, ranging from toothpaste to all sorts of chemicals. Pumping action is achieved by compression of a circular loop of elastomeric hose with two diametrically opposed rotating shoes. This rotational motion forces the fluid in the hose to move ahead of each shoe. When each shoe reaches the end of the loop, the reinforced tube immediately returns to its original shape, thereby ensuring suction and priming. The pump housing is partially filled with lubricant, aiding smooth running of the shoes on the hose. The inside of the hose and hose inserts are the only pieces of equipment in contact with pumped fluids, allowing aggressive and contaminated fluids to be pumped.
Allied Pumps is an official distributor of Abaque peristaltic pumps and supports the full Abaque peristaltic range of pumps and spare parts.
Lobe pumps offer superb sanitary qualities, high efficiency, reliability, corrosion resistance, and good clean-in-place and sterilise-in-place (CIP/SIP) characteristics. They can handle high viscosity fluids and solids without damaging them.
How does a lobe pump works? Lobe pumps work similarly to gear pumps except that the lobes do not come in contact with each other. In addition, lobe pumps have larger pumping chambers than gear pumps, which enable them to transfer slurries. They also tend to move slower in order to handle shear-sensitive materials. The pump housings and lobe vanes are available in multiple material combinations. Lobe pumps are known for their long running lives.
Allied Pumps is an official distributor of Borger lobe pumps and supports the full Borger lobe range of pumps and spare parts.
Positive Displacement Sliding Vane Pumps are highly efficient, self-priming, generally for low to medium viscosity lubricating and non-lubricating liquids. These pumps have a number of vanes that are free to slide into or out of slots in the pump rotor. When the pump driver turns the rotor, centrifugal force, push rods, and/or pressurized fluid causes the vanes to move outward in their slots and bear against the inner bore of the pump casing forming pumping chambers. As the rotor revolves, fluid flows into the area between the vanes (pumping cambers) when they pass the suction port. This fluid is transported around the pump casing until the discharge port is reached. At this point the fluid is squeezed out into the discharge piping. Automatic compensation for vane wear assures the pump will maintain its superior priming characteristics and line-stripping ability over a long service life. Smooth output flow ensures quiet operation within the NPSH range.
The pumps can be direct-coupled to synchronous-speed motors.
