New Almatec® CXR Series AODD Pumps Increase Safety and Flexibility in Numerous Low- To Medium-Duty Applications
Kamp-Lintfort, Germany, — Almatec®, a premier manufacturer of air-operated double-diaphragm (AODD) pumps specializing in plastic pumps with solid housings, is pleased to announce the availability of the new CXR Series AODD Pump, which is an extension of Almatec’s CX Series family of general-purpose pumps.
CXR Series pumps are available in four sizes: CXR 10, CXR 20, CXR 50, and CXR 130. The main benefit of the CXR pumps is their design flexibility, which allows them to be used for a number of different low- to medium-duty applications, such as a drum pump. All CXR models can easily be converted from ball to cylinder valves, and vice versa. Incorporating ball valves is ideal for liquids containing particles, while cylinder valves are ideal for transfer applications requiring superior suction lift.
Another benefit of the CXR pump’s construction are housing parts that are attached with housing bolts that are tightened against a diaphragm-sized ring located on each side of the pump. This method of construction allows the pump to transmit the forces of the housing bolts onto the housing parts evenly. This consistent flow of pumping forces and an ability to apply increased bolt torque result in an increase in the CXR pump’s operational safety.
The CXR pumps feature Almatec’s unique PERSWING P® air-control system which has no dead spots and does not need maintenance or lubrication. The CXR pumps are also self-priming and dry-run capable, with suction-lift capabilities that allow containers to be emptied to the very last drop, even without supervision. The CXR’s housing is made from solid-block PE conductive for good chemical resistance. Their design and construction also allows the CXR pumps to be operated in potentially explosive atmospheres and with flammable liquids, per ATEX-compliance standards.
