Double-diaphragm pumps

August 1, 2011


Designed for food processing operations, Almatec BIOCOR Series aseptic, air-operated, double-diaphragm pumps are available in 3 sizes, with maximum capacities of 15, 34 and 70gpm at a maximum discharge pressure of 100psi. The pumps feature step-less flow control via air pressure and volume without mechanical control units. Wetted housing parts are constructed from electro-polished 316L stainless steel with a center block of PE conductive; the diaphragms, ball valves and O-rings are made of PTFE or EPDM. A metal-free, pneumatically pilot-operated air control system ensures accurate reversal of the main piston, does not require maintenance and operates without any lubrication. The pumps have earned certifications for hygienic design and cleanability from the 3A and EHEDG organizations, as well as material compliance as stipulated by FDA.
