Almatec developed the new E-Series Plastic AODD Pumps, a air-operated double-diaphragm pump with solid plastic housing. These pumps provide the superior containment and safety needed in the transfer of dangerous solvents. This includes benzene, toluene, xylene, styrene and ethyl benzene, which are solvents used in the manufacture of adhesives, plastics and paint and coatings, to name a few.

Wilden, spezialised in air-operated double-diaphragm (AODD) pump technology, announced its Advanced Series Stainless Steel AODD Pumps for a safe transfer of most of hazardous solvents, including
- methylene chloride,
- methyl chloride,
- carbon tetrachloride and
The ATEX-rated E-Series manufactured from Almatec, which provides superior containment and safety, will be on display at Achema in Hall 8.0, Stand L79. These air-operated double-diaphragm (AODD) pumps are designed specifically to handle and transfer the most dangerous chemicals, including acids, solvents and caustics.
As the beating heart in all manner of systems including diaphragm pumps, diaphragms have to withstand long and heavy loads. They also have to meet the toughest of requirements in pneumatic systems, fittings, and many, many other applications. With diaphragms made of thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), Freudenberg Simrit has succeeded in taking a decisive step towards significantly extending the service lives of diaphragms. TPU is also incredibly resistant to abrasion, which means that the components in which it is used in get top grades for lifecycle duration and economic efficiency.
All-Flo Pump Co. announced it’s All-Safe™ DRM (Diaphragm Rupture Management) system to instantly alert pump operators in the event of a diaphragm rupture.
The UK-based specialist pump manufacturer Flotronic already had a solution to aggressive chemicals handling requiring a high flow rate – the Chemflo. The challenge was to produce a cost-effective pump that could handle aggressive chemicals and other products at lower flow rates. The new pump also needed to transfer material at temperatures up to 80°C and be ATEX-compliant and ultra-safe. The turning point in developing a solution came from a simple enquiry. Could a pump be machined out of a solid block of PTFE? And so the ‘Minichem’ was born –a n air-operated double diaphragm pump, machined from one solid block of PTFE.
