Almatec® E-Series Pumps Earn Innovation Award

Kamp - Lintfort, Germany - September 16, 2010 - Almatec®, a premier manufacturer of air-operated double-diaphragm (AODD) pumps and an operating company within Dover Corporation's Pump Solutions Group (PSG(TM)), is extremely proud to announce that its E-Series AODD Pump has been named a winner of a 2010 Innovation Award from Flow Control magazine.

Flow Control's Innovation Awards program, which is in its 13th year, is an annual competition designed to recognize the year's most compelling advances in fluid-handling technology in the categories of Fluid Measurement, Control and Containment. Almatec's E-Series pumps were nominated for an Innovation Award in the Control category in January 2010 and named a finalist in June. After the votes of the magazine's readers were tabulated, the E-Series was named a 2010 Innovation Award winner and will be featured in the September issue of Flow Control.

The E-Series pumps, which are a direct replacement for Almatec's popular A-Series pumps, earned their name because they have been designed to be economic, ecological, efficient and ergonomic. They feature an all-plastic diaphragm and are available in seven sizes, from DN 8 to 80, with maximum flow capacities from 0.9 m³/h to 43 m³/h. The pumps also offer Almatec's patented PERSWING P® Air Control System, which is both maintenance- and lubrication-free.

E-Series pumps offer an optimized flow pattern that delivers a higher fluid flow while needing less air, resulting in greener production and reduced production costs. The pumps also feature a first-of-its-kind ring-tightening structure that allows all of the housing bolts to be tightened against a diaphragm-sized ring on a much bigger face. This reduces the surface pressure significantly and the punctual stress on the pump material, while increasing pump safety and ability to handle temperature variations. The E-Series also has a solid housing that absorbs mechanical vibrations and noise level much better than thin-walled pumps.
