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.

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
