ARO Introduces the PH30F 2:1 High Pressure Diaphragm Pump



Ingersoll Rand has announced the expansion of its ARO EXP Series portfolio of diaphragm pumps to include a three-inch ported (model PH30F-X) 2:1 High Pressure pump; a proven addition to ARO’s High Pressure pump offering.


By utilizing the effective surface areas of both diaphragms to double output pressure, the PH30F can produce fluid discharge pressures up to 200 psi while maintaining an industry-leading flow rate up to 160 gpm.  Available in Stainless Steel, the PH30F is the ultimate solution for applications that require the transfer of viscous or high-solids fluids at pressures exceeding 100 psi.  Ideal applications include filter press water removal, ceramic slurry injection, and resin transfer.  The PH30F 2:1 is also capable of providing pressure boosts in applications where downstream system pressure drop is high, or in situations where inlet air pressure is below the desired operating level.


“As our EXP Series pumps continue to lead the way for industrial and process applications, we are excited to further expand our high pressure capability set,” said Andrew Gyves, Portfolio Specialist for Ingersoll Rand. “This line extension further enhances our EXP portfolio, providing customers with a solution that offers superior efficiency, performance, reliability, and durability for high-pressure, high-flow applications.”


ARO Distributor Furey Filter and Pump of Germantown, WI recently supplied two PH30F models for a customer application.  The customer needed to transfer a highly viscous chocolate mixture (~2M cP) a distance of 300 feet, including a twenty-foot vertical climb.  “Other pump brands the customer tried simply couldn’t handle the viscosity – and thinning the product was not an option due to end-user specifications,” said Jack Furey, Vice President of Furey Filter and Pump.  “Supplying fluid pressure of 180 psi, the ARO 2:1 allowed successful transfer of the product at the consistency specified, resulting in complete end-user satisfaction.”

The PH30F also offers users all of the trusted features exclusive to the ultra-efficient Ingersoll Rand ARO EXP.  These features include the patented SimulShiftTM and Quick DumpTM valve technologies to ensure stall-free and ice-free operation. Additionally, the combination of sturdy bolted construction design and long-lasting convoluted diaphragms, provides increased up-time and unparalleled ease of maintenance.
The PH30F is also backed by a five-year warranty on materials and workmanship
