Combines the best materials with smart design solutions
Maximises running time and minimises service
Particularly suited to
abrasive, corrosive, shear sensitive or viscous fluids
Tapflo PT is a hose pump of the latest design. We have combined the best materials with smart design solutions in order to maximise running time and minimise service.
The principle of operation of the pumping action in Tapflo hose pumps is achieved by pinching a circular loop of rubber tube with two diametrically opposed rotating wedges. Due to the rotational movement, the fluid in the tubes is pushed ahead of each wedge. When each wedge reaches the end of the loop, the hose is released and the wedge rotates n to the start of the loop to begin a new cycle.
As the wedge releases the reinforced tube, it immediately returns to its original shape, there by ensuring positive suction and priming. This construction makes it a smart and effective choice for a wide range of pump applications.
The pump housing is partially filled with lubricant, thereby allowing smooth running of the wedges on the tube. The pump fluid is only in contact with the inside of the tube and can therefore be of an aggressive nature and/or contaminated with particles. PT pumps are commonly used for:
Industrial waste water, waste sludge treatment, flocculent dispersions, flocculated waste, lime liquor, sludge and slurries, ceramic slips and paste, clay suspension and compounds, cement slurries, concrete pumping, ore slurries and leaching pulp, metallic salts, crystallized suspensions, black liquor foam, filter press applications, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, etc.
|Industry||Example of application|
|Food-, beverage- and
A variety of auxiliary applications, like transfer of water, edible oil, alcohols, detergents, and CIP cleaning liquids.
| Mechanical industry
Handling of water and coolants etc
Transfer of a variety of mild chemicals and solvents
Self priming up to 9 meters
– Flexible installation
Hoses reinforced with
four layers of polyamide
– Doubles the life time of the hose
The drive of the pump is independent
of the pumping system
– eliminates risk of liquid in the drive
Maintenance is done with
the pump in the system
– minimized service time and
therefore a more economical
Precise volumetric flow
– Accurate for dosing applications
Continuous run dry
capability without damage
– Less risk for costly breakdown
Reversive pumping action
– Useful in cleaning cycles
High discharge pressure: up to 15 bar
– Manages high viscous products and high pressure applications
The hose is the only wearing part
– Easy maintenance
