Technomax is a leading provider of air powered pump technology in the UAE and other parts of the middle east. We believe in delivering the best to our customers – whether it’s products or service. When it comes to industrial pumps, we recommend, stock, and deliver the Yamada Air Operated Double Diaphragm pumps to ensure our customers get the advantage of superior Japanese technology and quality. We can provide Yamada pumps for numerous pumping needs of our customers; they can also choose the type of body they want: polypropylene, aluminum, or stainless steel. There are eight types of diaphragm materials – like NBR. PTFE, EDPM, and so on. The latest and probably the most durable among them is the Teflon TU diaphragm, designed to withstand a lot of rough handling, and run for longer duration than most.
Yamada AODD powder pumps are capable of pumping bulk solids efficiently, ensuring safety in the transfer process. They are capable of transferring fine-grained dry powders that are not high density, consistently, and the operation is dust free. The PTFE check balls guard against sticky powders.

Air valve technology
At the core of the air-powered double diaphragm pump, is the proprietary Yamada air valve technology. The company has three patents on this valve which has been tried and tested, and so has a reputation of a superior technology all across the industry. The NDP pump series make use of fully unlubricated primary air valve and individual pilot devices to manage the air logic. This C-spool enables the product to operate independently of a stall throughout its life.
Working of the Yamada AODD Pump Air Valve C-Spool
The compressed air that fills the pump is routed to a particular side through the primary air valve; which side it is directed to depends on the C-spool’s position. This air in the chamber pushes the diaphragm outwards, forcing the fluid out of the discharge ball valve. Now the inlet ball valve on the opposite side is loaded. When the diaphragm moves outward, the opposite side diaphragm that is connected to this one, pulls it inwards. When it moves a complete stroke, it touches the pilot valve to depress it, and breaks the seal and opens the exhaust port. The compressed air flows from the rear of the air valve to the exhaust through the open part. This creates a drop in pressure, causing the primary air valve to shift, and the entire motion is repeated on the opposite side.
Rugged, Bolted Construction
Thanks to the bolted construction feature in Yamada AODD pumps, there is no leakage, and assembling the pump after maintenance becomes simple. This design is a huge improvement over clamp band retainers, which cause leakages. It is cumbersome and frustrating to perform maintenance and repairs on this as there tends to be a lot of misalignments.
Outside-Accessible Air Valve
It is possible to inspect, service and repair air valve in any Yamada AODD pump without disconnecting the pump from service. It is accessible from the outside, making it very easy to check and inspect.
Unified Air Valve Concept
The air valves are of the same size, and this eliminates confusion over inventory and spare parts.
The individual modular pilot valve is a unique feature in the Yamada AODD pumps, and it is this valve that activates the air valve. An inner central disk depresses the valve, leading to a drop in the pressure at one end of the air valve, prompting a shift to happen. As there are no lubricated dynamic o-rings that necessitate replacement or repair, and no awkward snap rings, this is a maintenance free valve, simplifying the working of the pump.
In a nutshell are the main technology components of Yamada AODD pumps:
- Air valve
- Pilot valve
- Leak proof, fully bolted mating surface
- Spring assisted, non-centering shifter (patented)
- Submersible, dry run, self-priming, shear sensitive, dead head, explosion proof
Pneumatic Pump: An Overview
An air operated double diaphragm pump is a pneumatic pump that uses a patented air valve that directs compressed air between two sides of the pump, back and forth. It can operate on regular compressed air, clean dry air, nitrogen, or even natural gas. An air operated double diaphragm pump is typically used where air is readily available, and the characteristics of the application are better suited for the technology. If you have solids, a thicker liquid, self-priming requirements, dry running potential, explosion proof specs, variable flow rates, shear sensitive liquids, something submerged, portability required, or the application calls for dead heading a diaphragm pump is an excellent choice.
Diaphragm Pump NDP Series pumps are the backbone of the industrial line of AODD pumps. A unique, patented air-valve design ensures stall-free operation throughout product life. For high solids content, higher viscosities present, wide ranges of pH, possible dry running conditions, variable flow rates, suction lift required or if you just want something portable NDP pump technology is an excellent choice. NDP Pumps can handle content like ultra-high purity chemicals, pharmaceuticals, alcoholic beverages, food products, higher viscosities, or solid contents (up to 40% by weight) are also possible with this technology. Pneumatic pumps are often used when transferring highly explosive liquids as they are easily grounded and are inherently safer being operated with compressed air.
Application of Yamada Pump
Yamada air operated double diaphragm pumps can be used in a multitude of industries and applications. Capabilities of Yamada pumps in operating in a variety of contents the NDP pump makes it an excellent choice for many industries, hence the Yamada pump has a wider range of application. NDP pumps are widely used by Chemical, Pharmaceutical, Food, and Oil Industries to manage their fluid handling systems.

This is a medium sized pump that is perfect for heavy applications, and displays superb performance. It has numerous value-added features like dead-head operation and self-priming etc. The pump’s running time is maximized due to features like commonly replaceable components, bolted construction and so on, helping to ensure uninterrupted operations, minimizing loss, and increasing profitability.
Construction material for body: Choose from cast iron, aluminum, polypropylene
Construction material for diaphragm: choose from neoprene, teflon, hytrel, santoprene, norde, buna N
Pressure range: maximum 7 bar
Head range: maximum 70m
Flow range: 116 liters per minute
This pump can be used for a variety of purposes like solvent cleaning, loading and discharging chemicals, dewatering, blending and filling, and so on.
As it is a self-priming model, it can run dry. It is capable of handling inconstant flow rates as well as discharge pressure, and is capable of operating at dead head. Its diaphragm can be submerged in liquid. This pump is engineered and designed to be durable and to exhibit superior performance, and is shear sensitive.
Yamada pumps have no parts that are subject to wear-and-tear, and this makes them ideal for rough and heavy use over prolonged periods of time. They can even be submerged, with the exhaust line being run over the fluid line. At Technomax, we guarantee our customers the most superior and durable pumping technology with Yamada AODD pumps for all their industrial purposes. Our technicians provide excellent support to our customers as well.
