AODD Pumps C-Series AODD Pumps with New Models
Almatec 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 Series is the incorporation of the company’s exclusive Perswing P air control system, which offers superior efficiency to optimise production rates and lower energy costs, states the firm.
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 pumps to be quickly and easily matched to existing installations. According to the company, the pumps do not have any mechanical seals, drives or rotating parts that cause wear over time, which improves reliability and extends product life. The 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, the pumps are available in versions that conform to Atex requirements according to the 2014/34/EU directive.
