With this certification, Almatec AODD pumps are now available for use in a wide variety of sanitary and hygienic applications that involve food contact.

“Almatec is very proud to receive this important certification confirming the safe use of our leading AODD pumps in European food-processing applications,” said Peter Schueten, Almatec Product Manager. “When it comes to selecting a pump technology for critical hygienic applications, the pump can enhance, or potentially ruin, your process and your products, so it’s important to choose wisely. At Almatec, safety is one of our core beliefs and this certification is an example of the safe products we are providing to the marketplace.”

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.

In addition to their industry-leading reliability and safety, Almatec AODD pumps incorporate a variety of design features and benefits that allow them to enhance the production of food products, including the ability to efficiently pump a wide range of viscosities, solids and shear-sensitive products. These pumps also feature a unique seal-less design without mechanical seals, and are self-priming and dry-run capable. 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.
