Almatec E-Series Solid Body Plastic AODD Pumps for Dangerous Solvents
Almatec is a leading manufacturer of air-operated double-diaphragm (AODD) pumps and specialize in plastic pumps with solid housings. Its E-Series Plastic AODD Pumps showcase this expertise to provide superior containment and safe transfer of dangerous solvents, including benzene, toluene, xylene, styrene and ethyl benzene. These solvents are typically used in adhesives, plastics, and paint & coatings manufacturing.
The E-Series pump provides a safe pumping option for end-users that meets the increasingly stringent regulations of the global chemicals industry. The pump’s solid-block construction features abrasion-resistant polyethylene (PE) and polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) conductive materials that meet ATEX certification requirements, clearing the pump as suitable for use in hazardous environments.
Almatec offers its E-series in seven sizes ranging from 6 to 76 mm (1/4 to 3 in) with maximum temperatures to 120°C (248°F). The pump can handle maximum flows to 800 L/min (210 gpm); suction lift to 5 m (16.4 ft) dry, 9.5 m (31.2 ft) wet; and maximum solids size to 15 mm (9/16 in).
The E-series features Almatec’s unique Perswing P® air control system for maximum efficiency when comparing flow rate and air consumption needed, translating to lower overall energy costs. The pump was designed without mechanical seals, and instead relies on stainless steel ring technology to ensure consistent compression around the ring for higher torque, providing increased protection from leaks.
