Almatec AD 6 Pneumatic Diaphragm Pump Meets the Needs of Laboratory Operations


Almatec has announced that its AD 6 Pneumatic Diaphragm Pump has been developed for use in laboratory applications. The AD 6 pump meets these diverse needs because they have been designed to handle a maximum delivery volume of 250 lph (66 gph), with the delivery volume able to be adjusted just by changing the air flow.

AD 6 pumps are equipped with spring-loaded valves and can be installed in any position.

The AD 6 pump’s housing is constructed of solid PTFE conductive, making it corrosion-resistant to virtually all media, while its conductivity permits use of the pump in explosion-hazard areas and with inflammable liquids. In fact, the AD 6 pump meets all ATEX requirements for the directive 94/9/EG.

Additional features include submersible operation; dry-lift capabilities; proof against overloading and dry-running; the presence of Almatec’s patented maintenance-free air-control system (PERSWING P) without a dead center; PTFE diaphragms; gentle liquid displacement; acceptable use in unattended continuous tests; the ability to pull samples from wells up to 50 meters (164 feet); and optional connection kits for laboratory and sample pulling.

In the dental industry, consumables such as composites are filled into disposable syringes with Luer Lock attachment or into smaller Unit Dose packages. These flowable filling materials made of plastic and glass are usually highly abrasive, highly viscous, and stringy. This places high demands on dosing and filling systems. The materials are used in the dental industry, for example, for sealing, restorations, or core build-up.
