Cleaning Air Assembly – AODD Pump


Cleaning the air assembly of an air-operated double diaphragm (#AODD) pump is an important maintenance task that can help to ensure the pump’s performance and longevity. Here are some general steps to follow when cleaning the air assembly of an AODD pump

  • Shut down the pump: Before starting any maintenance work, ensure that the pump is shut down and disconnected from its power source.
  • Disconnect the air supply: Remove the air supply hose or line from the pump’s air inlet.
  • Remove the air valve: Using a wrench, remove the air valve from the pump’s air inlet.
  • Inspect the air valve: Check the air valve for wear, damage, or other signs of degradation. If the air valve is worn or damaged, it should be replaced with a new one.
  • Clean the air valve: Clean the air valve thoroughly using an appropriate cleaning solution. Be sure to remove any dirt, debris, or other contaminants that may be present.
  • Reassemble the air valve: Reinstall the air valve and tighten it to the appropriate torque specifications.
  • Reconnect the air supply: Reconnect the air supply hose or line to the pump’s air inlet.
  • Test the pump: Once the air assembly is cleaned and reassembled, test the pump to ensure that it is operating properly.

It’s important to follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for cleaning the air assembly of your AODD pump, as different pumps may have different requirements. Additionally, always wear appropriate safety gear, such as gloves and safety glasses, when working on the pump to protect yourself from any potential hazards.
