Original Press Release:
Almatec® Extends Line of C-Series AODD Pumps with New C 40 and C 50 Models
Duisburg, Germany, 6 August 2019 — Almatec®, part of PSG®, a Dover company and premier manufacturer of specialty pumps, has extended its line of solid plastic C-Series Air-Operated Double-Diaphragm (AODD) Pumps to include new C 40 (1-1/2”) and C 50 (2”) models. Engineered to be a more cost-effective alternative to similar plastic pumps, Almatec C-Series pumps feature an industry-leading design that increases bolt torque to improve pump safety when compared to competitive pumps. What further separates the C-Series is the incorporation of Almatec’s exclusive Perswing P® air control system, which offers superior efficiency to optimize production rates and lower energy costs.
Ideally suited for the most difficult pumping applications, C-Series pumps ensure the suction and discharge ports are available as separate housing parts with different footprints. This feature allows the C-Series to be quickly and easily matched to existing installations. C-Series pumps do not have any mechanical seals, drives or rotating parts that cause wear over time, which improves reliability and extends product life. C-Series pumps feature self-priming and dry run capabilities, critical considerations for most pumping applications.
The C-Series pump line now consists of five pump sizes – C 10 (3/8”), C 15 (1/2”), C 25 (1”), C 40 (1-1/2”) and C 50 (2”). The wetted housing parts are made of either abrasion-resistant polyethylene or chemically resistant PTFE. For applications in explosive atmospheres, C-Series pumps are available in versions that conform to ATEX requirements according to the 2014/34/EU directive.
