A Centrifugal Pump is highly versatile with its ability to be used in almost any industry and for any application type. Here at Tapflo UK we supply a wide range of Centrifugal Pumps for the following industries; Water Treatment, Surface Conditioning, Food & Beverage, Pharmaceutical and many others. This article will provide a comprehensive overview of Centrifugal pumps and list 5 of the main features Tapflo’s Centrifugal range offers.
Unlike positive displacement pumps, a Centrifugal Pump moves fluid through the pump by rotating one or more impellers, thus creating a centrifugal force that draws fluid into the pump and out to the discharge side. One of the advantages of these pumps is the Centrifugal Pump impeller can be changed depending on your requirements. The full range includes open, semi-open and closed impellers. Tapflo UK’s Centrifugal Range includes pumps from some of the best manufactures around the world includes BBA, Pomac and Robuschi. Take a look at our full range below:
Tapflo’s Centrifugal range Our Industrial and Hygienic Centrifugal Pumps are semi-open single-stage pumps manufactured in Stainless Steel AISI 316L. Our Hygienic Series (CTH) is manufactured with electro-polished pump casing and internals, specifically designed for hygienic and sanitary industries where cleanability and drainability are important factors, such as for food, beverage and pharmaceutical applications. Our Industrial Series (CTI) is manufactured with a glass-blasted pump casing, with a range of mechanical seal options and special executions available. This would be suited to a number of industrial applications such as water treatment, surface conditioning, chemicals, tank transfer duties and many more.
Magnetically Driven Centrifugal Pumps -Mag Drive Centrifugal Pumps are ideal for hazardous applications as they have a sealless design meaning a significantly reduced likelihood of leakage from the pump. Tapflo manufactures the CTM Pump which is a close-coupled, single-stage Magnetically Driven Centrifugal Pump, featuring either a Semi-Open or Closed Impeller. The pumps are manufactured from either glass fibre reinforced polypropylene or PVDF, offering a high mechanical and corrosion resistance. Standard Close Coupled Centrifugal Pumps operate with the impeller connected to the motor shaft directly, whereas, in our Mag Drive Pumps, the torque from the motor shaft is transmitted to the impeller by means of a magnetic coupling. As of 2020, Tapflo has been working with Gemme Cotti, an Italian manufacturer of Magnetically Driven Pumps. We can offer their Mag Drive Centrifugal Pump as a medium- to a heavy-duty alternative to Tapflo’s CTM Pump which is ideal for low- to medium-duty applications.
BBA Self-Priming, Electrically Driven Centrifugal Pumps – The BBA Pumps B Series is an industrial Self-Priming Centrifugal Pump. The range offers 2-Pole and 4-Pole options, reaching max flows up to 21 m3/hour for use in industries such as construction, wastewater management, irrigation and agriculture.
Salvatore Robuschi Industrial Centrifugal Pumps – ideal for large industrial applications such as handling wastewater, distillation and purification. Within their centrifugal range, we also supply Vertical Immersion Centrifugal Pumps, specifically designed for the transfer and circulation of various fluids from containers, tanks and sumps. The CTV range can, in many cases, replace a Self-Priming Pump due to the Immersion Pump being installed vertically with the motor above the liquid surface. Our Centrifugal Immersion Pumps are suited to a variety of applications, most commonly used for surface treatment, water treatment, heat exchangers and waste disposal
Pomac Sanitary Centrifugal Pump – The CPC sanitary range is EHEDG compliant and manufactured from stainless steel AISI 316, as is all of Tapflo’s sanitary pumps we offer. They are ideal for the food and pharmaceutical industries or CIP processes that need bacteria to be kept to a minimum.
CTX High Performance Centrifugal Pump -Tapflo has developed the CTX Pump which incorporates the CTH and CTI ranges available for both hygienic and industrial ranges with more robust construction for high-performance applications. Through continuous development and the goal to create better solutions for our customers, Tapflo has been widening its portfolio with this latest instalment. To find out more about the CTX high-performance centrifugal pump, take a look at our case study where a CTX pump was used as the perfect solution for a client looking to pump liquid fertiliser.
