…and that’s just the tip of the iceberg, so it’s more than likely that whatever you need, we’ve got it covered!

Up to 70% fewer parts than our competitors

A Diaphragm Pump will lots of tiny parts means more weak points that cause leakages, and if your pump is already leaking, we definitely recommend contacting Tapflo.

Tapflo’s Air Operated Diaphragm Pump side housings are machined from solid block HDPE and PTFE or manufactured from Cast Iron, Aluminium or Stainless Steel. This design ensures that the frame is stronger to withstand aggressive fluids and increases the life of our pumps.

Diaphragms

Diaphragms for your Pump

If your diaphragms are causing leaks regularly in your pump, it might be time to talk to Tapflo.

As standard, every Tapflo Pump across the world is supplied with no-nut, clean face diaphragms. Our diaphragms are made from chemically bonded layers, this design means there is no need for a nut to hold them together so removes the likelihood of a leak. Of course, all diaphragms eventually rupture from general wear but by swapping your diaphragms, you can increase the life of the diaphragms and protect your pump from damage caused by leaks.

Reliable Materials

Tapflo uses high-grade, reliable materials to manufacture our pumps:

Plastic range: HDPE (Polyethylene) is 6-7 times more wear-resistant than Polypropylene and can withstand temperatures up to 70°C. We also manufacture our pumps from PTFE (polytetrafluorethylene) which has a superior chemical resistance due to it being a thermoplastic polymer, therefore, it can withstand temperatures up to 100°C.

Metal range: We also produce pumps in Stainless Steel AISI 316L which is a high-quality grade material used across our range. Also available in Aluminium and Cast Iron. Similarly, Tapflo’s Sanitary Diaphragm Pumps are manufactured from Stainless Steel AISI 316L and supplied, as standard, with an extra-fine surface finish to Ra 0.8 or Ra 0.5 upon request, to meet the strictest of hygiene standards.ATEX Metal Diaphragm Pump

A wide selection of our Air Operated Diaphragm Pumps are also available as ATEX for hazardous environments. The pumps are manufactured with carbon filled, conductive plastic and our Metal AODs feature carbon centre sections like in the image here. This material safeguards the pump from electrostatic building inside the pump.

Simple Installation

Tapflo’s Air Operated Diaphragm Pumps are easily installed on-site which helps businesses to keep service costs down to a minimum and allows quick and easy maintenance. On Tapflo’s HDPE/PTFE series, the connection at the top of the pump can be rotated 180°, meaning our Diaphragm Pumps also allow flexible installation, as it turns easily to fit the piping system that you have in place.

Low Energy Air Pumps

Your standard Diaphragm Pump is costing too much

Tapflo UK is the home of LEAP Technology. LEAP standard for Low Energy Air Pump and has been designed to allow the pump to begin operating at a much lower pressure than standard AODs, therefore reducing the cost of compressed air for your business.
