BIOCOR Air-Operated Double Diaphragm (AODD) Pumps by Almatec
Designed for sterile applications within the pharmaceutical, biotechnical and food industry
The ALMATEC BIOCOR air-operated double diaphragm pump series is especially designed for sterile applications within the pharmaceutical, biotechnical and food industry. The air-operated diaphragm pumps are EHEDG certificated and ATEX conform according to 94/9/EG directive. The pump sizes B 20 and B 32 with the PTFE material combination (diaphragms, ball valves, seals) and the option diaphragm monitoring are 3-A approved. The special design with the integrated cleaning-system enables the CIP (clean in place) and SIP (sterilization in place) capability.
Always a demand for sterile applications: all housing parts of the BIOCOR pumps show no horizontal areas. Each pump comes with four ball lifting magnets, which can be attached to the pump housing from the outside at the location of the four ball valves. The ball valves are risen up magnetically out of their seats and the pump is drained entirely without having to be dismounted. There are no mechanical ball lifters with parts and seals in the wetted area (ball lifting magnets for B 20 and B 32 only).
The three pump sizes B 20, B 32 and B 40 achieve max. capacities of 3.5/7.5/17 m³/h (15.4/33/75 gpm) resp. a max. discharge pressure up to 7 bar (100 psig). The material for the wetted housing parts is electro polished SS 316 L (Basel Standard II, ferrit content < 1%) with a surface roughness of ≤ 0.4 μm. The center block is made of polyethylene conductive.
