E-Series pump sizes E 15 to E 50 are available with a special Almatec draining system consisting of a bypass system in the side housings that can be activated easily either via hand-operated valves or pneumatically. In this way, the pump and piping can be drained without having to be dismounted. The amount of cleaning agent and solvent required when changing products is considerably reduced, and this greatly reduces environmental pollution. For metal CHEMICOR pumps, another constructive solution is available. Ball lifters – which are turnable by hand – are fitted to the four ball valves. By turning the handles, the ball valves are lifted out of their seats.
