Almatec CXM Series AODD Pumps Replace CX & CXR Series
Almatec, part of PSG, a Dover company, and a leading manufacturer of pneumatic diaphragm pumps, has announced its new CXM Series AODD pump. The new series is able to replace the CX and CXR series of pumps. The new CXM Series debuted at the recent ACHEMA show in Frankfurt, Germany.
The CSM Series pumps from Almatec have a modular design that offers seven different product connections that include four sizes with NPT connections and three sizes with BSP connections. NPT pump sizes of 10, 20, 50, and 130 are interchangeable with both the CX and CXR series. Product connections on the BSP pump sizes of 25, 55, and 135 are located on the face side of the pump. With such a wide range of product connections, the new pumps can easily be adjusted to accommodate a wide variety of specific applications. All CXM pumps can be converted from ball to cylinder valves, and vice versa, which is ideal for transfer applications that require the high suction lift of clear liquids.
Housing parts of the CXM series pumps are attached with housing bolts that are tightened against the diaphragm-sized ring located on each side of the pump. This allows the pump to transmit the forces of the housing bolts onto the housing parts evenly. The pumps offer high performance and gentle pumping thanks to the consistent flow of pumping forces and the ability to supply increased bolt torque.
The CXM Series pumps feature the PERSWING P air-control system which eliminates dead spots and requires no maintenance or lubrication. The pumps are self-priming, dry-run capable, and offer suction-lift capabilities for truly dry containers, even without supervision. The pump housing provides chemical resistance, because it is constructed with solid-block PE conductive materials. The pumps adhere to ATEX-compliance standards, as they can be operated in potentially explosive atmospheres that include flammable liquids.
