Almatec FUTUR Series AODD Pumps for the Semiconductor Industry

Since 1984, Almatec® has been manufacturing a variety of specialty pumps for supplying and circulating chemicals in the semiconductor industry. With its straight-through flow pattern technology, the Almatec FUTUR Series Air-Operated Double-Diaphragm (AODD) Pump is ideally suited for the special requirements of these applications.

FUTUR Series pumps are self-priming and dry run capable, and feature a compact, simple design with few parts. FUTUR Series pumps have housing parts machined from solid blocks for long-life performance, and are cleaned, assembled and tested in a cleanroom line. For every pump size and material option, the appropriate pulsation damper is available.

The FUTUR is currently available in four materials:

  • Four sizes made of PTFE/PE for acids and caustics up to 130°C (266°F) (FUTUR T model)
  • Two sizes made of PTFE for hot applications with acids and caustics up to 200°C (392°F) (FUTUR H model)
  • Two sizes made of PE for slurries (FUTUR E models)
  • Two sizes made of SS316L for solvents (FUTUR S and SH models)

Features at a Glance

  • Four material versions (T/H/E/S) for different applications
