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.
All Almatec AODD pumps that meet 1935/2004/EC compliance will now be designated by an “H” as part of the pump code. The code “H” is available for all pump models with PTFE-internal parts, including on Almatec E-Series, Chemicor, Biocor and CXM Series pumps.
Almatec pumps are available in multiple material and construction options to include certifications for hygienic design and cleanability from EHEDG (Biocor Series), as well as material compliance as stipulated by the FDA.
