Almatec AODD pumps receive European food safety certification

Almatec, part of PSG, a Dover company has received 1935/2004/EC safety certification for its plastic and metal AODD pumps.

The 1935/2004/EC is the common name for European Commission Regulation No. 1935/2004, which is the European safety standard for materials that come into contact with food during the production process.

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 AODD pumps that meet 1935/2004/EC compliance will be designated by an “H” as part of the pump code, which will be available for all pump models with PTFE-internal parts, including the Almatec E-Series, Chemicor, Biocor, and CXM Series pumps. 

Almatec’s 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.

The pumps feature a 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 the European Hygienic Engineering & Design Group (Biocor Series), as well as material compliance as stipulated by the US Food and Drug Administration.
