PSG at Anuga FoodTec 2018, Cologne

Thursday, February 15th, 2018 von admin

PSG has been providing pumps for the food and beverage industry for over two decades. The PSG brands that serve this market meet the strict requirements for hygienic transfer with certifications like 3A, FDA, EC 1935/2004 and EHEDG, providing solutions that safely transfer high value fluids. The exhibition motto at this year’s show is “Resource Efficiency,” which refers to utilizing resources in a sustainable and optimized way to minimize impacts on the environment, or in other words, to deliver greater value with less input. Specifically, the PSG brands that will be on display at this year’s show include:


What To Consider When Selecting a Filter-Press Pump

Friday, February 2nd, 2018 von admin

Technical paper by Peter Schüten:

High-Pressure Air-Operated Double-Diaphragm (AODD) Pumps Deliver The Operational Advantages Necessary For Optimized Operation Of Chamber Filter Presses.

In many industrial processes that feature the handling of liquids, the substances that are being transferred may occur in an aqueous or “muddy” state, with the liquid portion needing to be removed. This liquid-removal stage may take place during the production process – for example, in the filtration of edible oils or yeast solutions – but it more frequently occurs at the end of a process like wastewater treatment when the waste sludge that has formed must be withdrawn. Since the disposal of such sludges is calculated based on weight and volume, their thickening and drying is particularly lucrative for the processor. During the thickening and drying process, the sludges are treated using chemicals and/or physical processes so that the waste sludge forms into flake-like solids. After adjusting the pH level to neutral or alkaline via the use of milk of lime, the subsequent dewatering process separates the water for disposal, with the remaining volume of sludge significantly reduced.

The simplest technology for this process involves collection and thickening of the sludge through the use of gravity. However, it is significantly more effective to use technical drying methods via processes such as centrifuges and evaporators, or more commonly, chamber filter presses (Fig. 1).


Almatec: AODD Series Now Available in Stainless Steel

Friday, October 27th, 2017 von admin

The Futur S/SH pump series is now available in 316 stainless steel with high surface finish for the transfer of pure solvents in the semiconductor industry.

Realizing the importance of reliable and contamination-free pump performance in critical semiconductor operations, Futur S/SH Series pumps are cleaned several times, then assembled and tested in a cleanroom line before being released for delivery. Futur S/SH Series pumps incorporate a “straight-through flow pattern” with only one wetted housing part (center housing) while the air control system and the air chambers are located in the side housings.


Almatec: Sanitary AODD pumps

Monday, August 7th, 2017 von admin

The Biocor pumps have been specifically designed for critical sterile applications, and meet the strict standards, regulations and operational requirements that govern the food and beverage industry because they contain no horizontal areas. Available with a 316L polished stainless steel wetted path, these pumps provide superior containment and utilize ball-lifting magnets that can be attached to the pump housing from the outside at the location of the four ball valves. With the use of magnets, the ball valves can be lifted from their seats, allowing the pump to be drained entirely without needing to be disassembled or removed from the application. This enables clean-in-place (CIP) and sanitize-in-place (SIP) capabilities.

Almatec: High-Pressure Pump Series

Monday, July 4th, 2016 von admin

Almatec-AHD_AHS SeriesThis new high-pressure pump series AHD/AHS are developed for applications up to 15 bar (218 psig) such as filter press applications.

The “D” in AHD stands for Duplex, which means the reinforcement of the drive pressure is more than 2:1 by the internal pressure boosting stage. This is achieved thanks to a maximum drive pressure of 7 bar (100 psig), which allows the AHD to build up discharge pressures up to 15 bar (218 psig). AHD Series pumps are available in three sizes (AHD 15, 25 and 40) with maximum capacities of 4, 10 and 20 m3/h (17, 44 and 87 gpm).

The new AHS Series, which does not include an internal pressure booster, features an extremely rugged housing making it suitable for higher discharge pressures. The “S” in AHS stands from Simplex, meaning the drive pressure is transferred to the medium in a ration of 1:1.

Almatec: AODD Pumps receive 1935/2004/EC certification

Monday, February 22nd, 2016 von admin

Almatec, manufacturer of sanitary air-operated double-diaphragm (AODD) pumps, is pleased to announce that its plastic and metal AODD pumps are now 1935/2004/EC-compliant.

1935/2004/EC is the common name for European Commission Regulation No. 1935/2004, which is the European safety standard for materials that come into contact with food during the production process. With this certification, Almatec AODD pumps are now available for use in a wide variety of sanitary and hygienic applications that involve food contact.
