Chemicals play a fundamental role in various industries, ranging from pharmaceuticals and food processing to water treatment and manufacturing. Efficient and safe handling of chemicals is paramount to ensure product quality, process integrity, and workplace safety. In this context, the selection of appropriate pumping equipment is critical to facilitate the packaging, transfer, storage, unloading, and manufacturing of chemicals.

Iwaki Air, a leading manufacturer of air-operated double diaphragm (AODD) pumps, offers reliable solutions for chemical handling applications. With a focus on durability, versatility, and safety, Iwaki Air pumps are well-suited for a wide range of chemical handling tasks, providing industries with the confidence to effectively manage their chemical processes.


Packaging chemicals into smaller containers is a common requirement in many industries, whether for retail distribution, laboratory use, or process feeding. Iwaki Air AODD pumps excel in this task due to their precise control over flow rates, gentle handling of fluids, and compatibility with various packaging formats.

When packaging chemicals, accuracy and consistency are crucial to ensure product quality and avoid wastage. Iwaki Air AODD pumps offer adjustable flow rates and the ability to handle both low and high viscosity fluids, allowing for precise filling of bottles, cans, drums, or bags. Additionally, the pumps’ self-priming capability enables efficient startup and eliminates the need for manual priming, reducing downtime and labor costs.


Transferring chemicals between storage tanks, processing equipment, or different areas within a facility is a routine operation in many industries. Iwaki Air pumps are well-suited for chemical transfer applications due to their robust construction, versatile performance, and ability to handle aggressive or abrasive fluids.

One of the key advantages of Iwaki Air AODD pumps is their ability to handle a wide range of viscosities, from thin solvents to thick slurries. This versatility makes them suitable for transferring various chemicals, including acids, bases, solvents, and adhesives, without the need for separate pumping equipment. Additionally, Iwaki Air AODD pumps offer dry run capability, allowing them to safely operate without damage if the pump is inadvertently run without fluid.

This feature enhances operational flexibility and protects the pump from potential damage during transient conditions, such as pump cavitation or loss of suction.


Proper storage of chemicals is essential to maintain their stability, prevent contamination, and ensure workplace safety. While Iwaki Air pumps are primarily used for transferring chemicals, their compatibility with different storage tank configurations makes them valuable assets in chemical storage facilities. When integrating AODD pumps into chemical storage systems, several factors should be considered to ensure optimal performance and safety. These factors include tank design, material compatibility, containment measures, and regulatory compliance.

Moreover, Iwaki Air AODD pumps can be equipped with accessories such as pulsation dampeners, pressure relief valves, and leak detection sensors to enhance system reliability and safety. These accessories help mitigate the risk of overpressure, pulsation-induced stress, and fluid leakage, safeguarding both personnel and the environment.


Unloading chemicals from bulk containers such as tank trucks, railcars, or tanker ships requires efficient and reliable pumping equipment to ensure timely delivery and minimize product loss. Iwaki Air AODD pumps are well-suited for chemical unloading applications due to their portability, self-priming capability, and compatibility with a wide range of fluids.

Whether unloading corrosive acids, viscous polymers, or hazardous solvents, Iwaki Air pumps offer the versatility and performance required to handle diverse chemical compositions. Their air-operated design eliminates the risk of sparking or ignition, making them suitable for use in potentially explosive atmospheres such as refineries, chemical plants, or transportation terminals.

Furthermore, Iwaki Air pumps feature robust construction with chemically resistant materials, ensuring compatibility with the transferred chemicals and minimizing the risk of contamination or product degradation. This compatibility is essential for preserving the quality and integrity of chemicals during transportation and storage, safeguarding their value and usability upon arrival at the destination.


In chemical manufacturing processes, precise metering, dosing, and mixing of chemicals are critical for product quality, process efficiency, and regulatory compliance. Iwaki Air pumps are well-suited for these applications, offering accurate flow control, reliable performance, and compatibility with a wide range of chemical formulations.

Whether metering reagents in pharmaceutical production, dosing additives in food processing, or blending ingredients in specialty chemical manufacturing, Iwaki Air pumps provide the versatility and precision required for diverse manufacturing processes. Their air-operated design allows for variable flow rates and easy adjustment of dosing volumes, enabling precise control over chemical additions and formulations.
