Manufacturer of air-operated double-diaphragm (AODD) pumps, Almatec, has announced the release of its new MM Series AODD pump.

The pump is designed to meet the strict standards, regulations and operational requirements that govern the food and beverage industry. Typical applications include the transfer and filling of beverages, dosing of food and beverage ingredients and the transfer and filling of cosmetics.

The new Almatec MM series features food-grade wetted materials and is constructed to enable clean-in-place (CIP) and sanitize-in-place (SIP). The design of MM Series pumps also incorporates soft redirections without rotating parts and shaft seals in the product chamber, a critical consideration for hygienic operations.

MM Series pumps come in three sizes: the MM 15, MM 25 and MM 40 and achieve maximum capacities from 3.5 to 20 m3/h. The maximum discharge pressure of MM Series pumps is 7 bar (100 psig) with a short-term temperature range up to 130 °C (266 °F) for cleaning processes.

All the pump’s materials comply with the FDA hygienic standards and conform to ATEX requirements according to the 2014/34/EU directive.
