ROUGH AND RUGGED SOLUTIONS MANUFACTURED FROM WEAR-RESISTANT MATERIAL.
In the ceramic industry, pumps are needed to transport a variety of liquids such as sludge and glazes. The pumps necessary for these applications must be manufactured with abrasion-resistant material. This is why the material in the solid Almatec E-Series AODD pump, abrasion-resistant polyethylene (PE). Trials based on the sand-slurry method have confirmed that the abrasion resistance of the PE is seven times higher than that of polypropylene (PP) — which is often used as a material in pumps — and 1.6 times higher than that of steel. It is also more wear-resistant than, for example, cast iron or aluminum.
