Almatec® E-Series Pumps on Display at InterSolar 2012

Featuring solid-body construction, ideal for harsh solar-cell applications

Kamp-Lintfort, Germany– July 3, 2012 Almatec®, a premier manufacturer of air-operated double-diaphragm (AODD) pumps specializing in plastic pumps with solid housings, is pleased to announce it will be exhibiting at InterSolar North America 2012 in Booth 5567. The InterSolar show, which is one of the premier platforms for promoting the development of business opportunities throughout the North American solar industry, will take place from July 10-12 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, CA, USA.


Almatec will be displaying its E-Series AODD pumps at InterSolar. Constructed with superior materials and a solid-block design that promotes reliability and operational efficiency, E-Series pumps are ideal for withstanding the demands of the harsh applications found in solar-cell manufacturing. All E-Series housing and pump components are made with polyethylene (PE) or PTFE, which set the standard in solar-cell applications. PE has a high abrasion-resistance, as much as seven times higher than polypropylene (PP) and 1.6 times higher than steel. This type of durability is important for handling the abrasive silicon carbide slurry of solar cell manufacturing. In addition, the highly chemical-resistant E-Series pumps constructed with PTFE allow for compatibility with the solar-cell manufacturing process's chemical supply, including acids and caustics, so that the pump's internal parts will not become corroded by abrasive media or dry particles.

E-Series pumps also feature the patented PERSWING P® maintenance-free air-control system. The pumps are self-priming and provide gentle displacement of fluids. Their compact, solid design makes them easy to install and provide unattended operation with long service life. E-Series pumps are easy to start up and also include an integrated muffler. Options such as a screw-on pulsation damper, draining systems, barrier chamber system, diaphragm monitor, stroke counting and flange connection are also available.

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Professional weather sensors form the heart of large solar plants supporting their operation and performance. Lufft was the first manufacturer to combine several sensors in one housing, bringing the largest multiparameter weather sensor family with 19 members into being. Many of them are well-suited for solar site assessment and continuous monitoring. The most commonly used one is the WS600 delivering data on temperature, air pressure, wind, relative humidity and precipitation. Through its open protocol, it can easily be attached to radiation sensors e.g. from Kipp&Zonen. Other models have an integrated Silicon, Second Class or Secondary Standard radiation sensor.
