We have a lot of frequent fliers here and I don't think any of us have had 
our pumps damaged going through airport security. Going through normal 
airport security does not subject you to x-rays, as far as I know. Now your 
carry-on baggage is another matter... but even here, the doses are very 
minimal. Since you should be wearing your pump, not carrying it separately, 
this shouldn't be an issue.
