Tapflo TC series pumps are based on standard Tapflo air operated diaphragm pumps but fitted with an power pack called LEAP® Technology. The LEAP® technology was developed for a ultra low flow high pressure applications.
LEAP® or ‘Low Energy Air Pump’ is a patented technology used in AODD pumps to reduce the minimum operating air pressure by reducing internal losses and friction found in conventional AODD pumps.
LEAP uses a unique indirect system to detect the position of the diaphragm shaft controlling the diaphragm movement automatically.
Extensive testing procedure showed that a large amount of energy required in a pump was to overcome the resistance in the pump. Another major issue was the mid-port scenario when Air pumps were turned down to much lower air pressure in an attempt to save energy, the pumps simply stalled.
The TC Intelligent air operated diaphragm pump is able to start pumping at 0.3 bar with no stalling, in test the pump was already achieving flow rates of 70% of its maximum open end flow before other pumps had even started.
Sustainable energy management
Achieve up to 70% energy savings
Features & benefits
fit to any existingTapflo AODD Pump
ability to utilise lower air pressure reduces the noise of the pump
Available in Plastic, Metal and Sanitary series AODD pumps
TC50 -TC425 (T50 -T425 equivalent)
the TC series uses an air valve that has a significantly longer life expectancy over rubber seal technology.
allowing the pump to automatically stop after the required volume has been dispensed.
main air valve can be changed in under two minutes without the removal of the pump from the process line.
signal allows for external monitoring of the pump process.
no need for an external pneumatic solenoid valve, reducing costs and simplifying control.
by analyzing the frequency of pulses, the pump can analyze when it is running dry.
as with dry running, the frequency of pulses can be monitored, alerting the pump has a blockage.
