Almatec Launches New C-Series AODD Pumps


Almatec, part of PSG, is pleased to announce the release of its new C-Series AODD pump. Ideally suited for virtually any pumping application where an oscillating pump can be found, C-Series pumps have been specifically developed to be a cost-effective alternative to similar plastic pumps while retaining the reliable and solid design typical of all Almatec pumps.

What further separates the C-Series from competitive pumps is a unique design that enables the housing parts to be tightened to each other via housing bolts. Rather than using single bolts that press against the housing, all of the C-Series’ bolts are tightened together against a diaphragm-sized ring on each side of the pump. This design distributes the forces of the housing bolts onto the housing parts evenly, providing a consistent flow of forces that increases bolt torque and improves pump safety. The design of C-Series pumps also ensures the suction and discharge ports are available as separate housing parts so that different connection versions are available for easy matching to existing installations. In addition, these pumps provide good suction head, and feature self-priming and dry run capabilities.

The C-Series features Almatec’s exclusive Perswing P® air control system, which offers superior efficiency when comparing flow rate and air consumption needed that translates into lower energy costs. The C-Series also features no mechanical seals, drives or rotating parts that cause wear over time. All wear parts are compatible with other Almatec pumps.

C-Series pumps are available in three pump sizes – C 10 (3/8”), C 15 (1/2”) and C 25 (1”) – and achieve flow rates from 1.3 to 7 m3/h at a maximum discharge pressure of 7 bar (100 psig). The wetted housing parts of the C-Series are made of either abrasion-resistant polyethylene or chemically, almost universally resistant, PTFE. The material of the non-wetted center block is polyethylene or PE conductive. Additionally, C-Series pumps are available in versions that conform to ATEX requirements according to the 2014/34/EU directive.

Multi screw pump moves highly viscous heavy oil at low NPSHa

22.02.2024 -

At a tank farm in a Brazilian sea port, two centrifugal pumps were used for transferring heavy oil from storage tanks to road tankers or vessels until February 2020. This required the high viscosity of the medium to be reduced by means of diesel injection, costing the owner at least 2,000 US dollars each day. In addition, the centrifugal pumps regularly broke down due to cavitation damage. The owners decided to initially replace one of the two centrifugal pumps with a NOTOS multi screw pump from NETZSCH. Due to its very good suction capabilities, the selected four-screw 4NS is also suitable for highly viscous media with up to 200,000 cSt, achieving a flow rate of up to 3000 m³/h.
