Yamada Pumps for Alternative Energy

Biodiesel, Ethanol, Wind and Solar

As a leading manufacturer of Air Operated Double Diaphragm Pumps, Yamada® is the ideal choice for the Alternative Energy Market. Whether you need a 3" pump for your biodiesel facility or an Ultra High Purity Pump for your solar panel fab, Yamada's many material options have got you covered.

Solar Panel Fabrication

Yamada® air-operated double diaphragm pumps are used to pump chemicals and acids in the manufacture of semiconductors and solar panels. Silicon wafer production utilizes many highly aggressive solvents and acids, where purity is of the utmost importance and cleanliness is critical.

Pump slurry during the wafer creation phase, as well as during the recycle stage (recover, recondition and reuse). Capable of handling abrasive slurries.

Pumps ideal for this application:

  • Ultra-High Purity (PTFE)*
  • Kynar®
  • Polypropylene
  • Electro-Polished Stainless Steel

* Extensively field proven, Yamada® F-Series clean room manufactured pumps are specifically designed for the safe and efficient transfer of ultra-high-purity process industries. They provide maximum corrosion resistance, ultra-high-purity levels and low particle generation.

Wind Turbine Maintenance

The Yamada® KPL-24 Electric Grease Lubricator can be used to re-fill existing pods on windmills during periodic maintenance or can be used directly to grease moving parts and bearing seals. A Yamada® AODD Pump can be used to pump lubricants/oils through filters for cleaning and recovery.

Pumps ideal for this application:

  • 24 Volt DC Grease Lubricator
  • Air-Operated Double Diaphragm Pumps
  • High Pressure (2:1) Pumps
