Why Almatec® CXM Series Pumps Are The Best Choice For A Drum Pump

When deciding on a new drum pump, many things go into choosing which pump will best fit the needs of the facility. The decision usually comes down, however, to what pump will meet the demands of the specific product-transfer application while being as safe as possible.


Developed as a general-purpose pump, the CXM Series Air-Operated Double-Diaphragm (AODD) Pump from Almatec® offers an array of benefits in a variety of low- to medium-duty applications, especially when used for drum containers. Thanks to the pump’s modular design, the CXM Series is available with seven different product connections – four sizes with NPT connections and three sizes with BSP connections. This wide range of product connections allows a precise adjustment of the pump to the specific application. All CXM pumps can also be easily converted from ball to cylinder valves, and vice versa. Incorporating cylinder valves is ideal for transfer applications requiring superior suction lift for clear liquids.

Another benefit of the CXM Series pump’s construction are housing parts that are attached with housing bolts that are tightened against a diaphragm-sized ring located on each side of the pump. This method of construction allows the pump to transmit the forces of the housing bolts onto the housing parts evenly. This consistent flow of pumping forces and an ability to supply increased bolt torque result in an increase in the CXM Series pump’s operational safety, ensures high performance and gentle pumping.

CXM Series pumps are self-priming and industrial-strength-proof against dry running. They allow containers to be emptied down to the very last drop, even without supervision. Their housings are made of conductive PE, machined from solid blocks, which has a great overall chemical resistance. CXM Series pumps can be operated within explosion-proof areas and can handle flammable liquids (ATEX compliant). The pumps also meet FDA requirements and offer as high pump safety as it comes.
