Tapflo’s TP Powder Pump is a type of Diaphragm Pump with a PTFE coating that ensures the pump can efficiently transfer powders. Benefits of using a Tapflo Powder Pump Powder Pumps are economical compared with other complex powder systems, such as Conveyer and vacuum systems. These pumps are also convenient and safer compared to manual powder handling. In fact, no dust and no labour are involved. There are several standard powder pump execution:
The TP Powder Pump works like a standard Diaphragm Pump, using compressed air to drive the two diaphragms inside the pump. These diaphragms work together, as one traps a set volume of liquid, the other pushes the same volume of liquid through the outlet port. In Tapflo’s TP Pumps, the air is then recycled back into the pump to dislodge any powder trapped around the ball valve. This prevents blockages in the pump that would be caused by a build-up of powder.
The air induction system includes:
What powder can be pumped? Our Powder Pump will handle different types of process powders:
A few examples of common powders are:
A general test that we recommend is to squeeze the powder in your fist, if the powder clumps together, it isn’t suitable for this pump.
Mining: Pumping powder waste into bags or replacing belt conveyor
Catalytic converter manufacturer: Catalytic powder to mixing pot; using the load cell for batch control; pumping directly out of 200 l drum; using flexible hose; stainless steel suction lance.
Medical Powder: dosing with load cell
Frozen Food: powder transfer in froze food manufacturing; transfer of herbs and spices.
