The Almatec C-Series has been designed as an alternative to plastic pumps.

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

Designed for pumping applications where an oscillating pump can be found, C-Series pumps have been specifically developed as a cost-effective alternative to similar plastic pumps while retaining the same design from Almatec.

The pumps have a design that enables the housing parts to be tightened to each other via housing bolts. Rather than using single bolts that press against the housing, all of the C-Series’ bolts are tightened together against a diaphragm-sized ring on each side of the pump. This design distributes the forces of the housing bolts onto the housing parts evenly, providing a consistent flow of forces that increases bolt torque and improves pump safety.

The design of C-Series pumps also ensures the suction and discharge ports are available as separate housing parts so that different connection versions are available for easy matching to existing installations. In addition, these pumps provide good suction head, and feature self-priming and dry run capabilities.
