A Positive Displacement Pump is a pump that draws in a certain volume of fluids and has the same amount of fluid leaving the discharge side of the pump, therefore, maintaining a constant flow for pumping operations. At Tapflo UK we supply a variety of Positive Displacement Pumps depending on your application.
There is often a debate as to whether you should use a Positive Displacement Pump or a Centrifugal Pump, however, both have their strengths and weaknesses depending on your application. We recommend using a Positive Displacement Pump if you are handling high viscosity fluids, high pressures or require a low flow rate.
If you’re unsure whether a Centrifugal Pump or a Positive Displacement Pump would suit your application better, then get in touch with the Sales Team today, we’d be happy to talk you through your options.
We supply a wide range of Positive Displacement Pumps, each of which has its own benefits…
Our Diaphragm Pumps are air operated, they have 2 diaphragms inside, 1 diaphragm creates a vacuum to draw fluid into the pump whilst the other forces fluid out of the discharge port.

Lobe Pumps are a versatile pump designed for sanitary applications. The pump is operated by two rotating lobes that create a suction to draw more fluid into the pump, creating a pressure that causes a predetermined amount to flow out of the pump’s discharge port.

The Twin Screw Pump has been designed to combine all the benefits of a Lobe, Peristaltic, Centrifugal and Circumferential Piston pumps. We supply Screw Pumps with double screws, which rotate to move fluid forward through the pump casing.
Also known as a Flexible Impeller Pump, these pumps push liquid forwards within the pump by trapping fluid between each vane of the impeller.

A Peristaltic Pump is a versatile pump that is easily maintained due to the main wear in the pump only affecting the hose. The pump creates a pulsating flow created by shoes or rollers on the wall of the hose to push fluid along the hose.
A Gear Pump is a Rotary Positive Displacement Pump which means their design features rotating cogs/gears that transfer fluid using a forward motion. Both internal and external ranges of Gear Pumps are classified as Positive Displacement Pumps. Tapflo supply a range of Gear Pumps on behalf of Yildiz Pompa for industrial applications.
Benefits of the Yildiz Range include:
