This standard covers air-operated pumps and includes those positive displacement reciprocating pumps used for general fluid transfer, which are drive by means of a compressed gas (usually air) from an outside source. The standard defines key terms and includes types and configurations, design, application, installation, operation, and maintenance.
Air-operated pumps can be applied in industries where source of electric power is not readily available or is regularly lost or where electricity can cause potential for explosion. Those looking to gain a basic understanding of air-operated pumps, especially those who must understand how to choose the right pump for an application to get the best performance, would benefit from purchasing this standard.
