Signs You Should Swap to a Tapflo Diaphragm Pump

Here at Tapflo, we’re strong believers in the superior design of our Diaphragm Pumps compared to others on the market. We want you to have the best pump for the job so that’s why we want to compare our Diaphragm Pumps to the standard pumps on the market. Here are our 7 signs that you should swap your current Air Pump for a Tapflo Diaphragm Pump. 

  1. Tapflo’s full Air Operated Diaphragm Pump series includes pumps ranging from Metal Powder Transfer Pumps and HDPE/PTFE Filter Press Pumps to Pharmaceutical Air Pumps and ATEX AODs. That’s just the tip of the iceberg, so it’s more than likely that whatever you need, we’ve got it covered!HDPE/PTFE Diaphragm Pump

So, if you’re in need of a Diaphragm Pump or you’re remembering the average customer service that you received from the last company that supplied you with a pump, then our friendly, customer-focused team are here, quoting pumps within to blow your socks off. The purchasing process will have never been so easy; you’ll be wondering why you’ve never ordered from Tapflo before!

  1. You’re still using a pump with hundreds of tiny parts, which means more weak points to cause leakage…or maybe your pump actually is leaking!

Tapflo’s Air Operated Diaphragm Pumps are machined from solid block HDPE & PTFE, Aluminium, Cast Iron or Stainless Steel. The cut of the HDPE/PTFE Pump’s frames means that there are no weak spots for the liquid to leak from, and as explained below, all diaphragms across our range are designed with a no-nut seal meaning there is no room for leakage. The design also ensures that the frame is stronger and can withstand aggressive chemicals.

  1. Diaphragms for your PumpEven worse, your diaphragms are causing the leak, so you have to keep replacing them!

The standard market design of diaphragms means that there are multiple layers that are held together with a bolt through the middle of them. Tapflo’s diaphragms have a completely smooth, no-nut face design, which means swapping to a Tapflo Diaphragm Pump means swapping your old pump for a superior design of diaphragm! The no-nut design is achieved by the layers inside Tapflo’s diaphragms being chemically bonded together. Not only does this mean that no metal comes into contact with the liquid being pumped, but the pumps have a long life, lasting for millions of stroke cycles – the obvious choice of an Air Diaphragm Pump!

  1. Tapflo uses superior materials to manufacture pumps.

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. We also produce pumps in Stainless Steel AISI 316L which is a high-quality grade material used across our Metal range of Double Diaphragm Pumps. Similarly, Tapflo’s Sanitary Air 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.

Metal Diaphragm Pump

  1. You’ve got a pump in plastic housing but the environment that you keep it in has changed.

It’s now in a hazardous environment and you want to know if this affects the pump… Well, I hate to be the one to tell you this… but it does. Luckily for you, Tapflo manufactures the TX ATEX series which can be supplied in HDPE & PTFE or Metal. The HDPE/PTFE ATEX Pump is manufactured from carbon filled, conductive plastic, which safeguards the pump from electrostatic building inside the pump.

  1. Have you always needed a specialist to fit your Diaphragm Pumps for you?

With the Tapflo Air Operated Diaphragm series, installation is easy, which keeps 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.

  1. Your standard Air Diaphragm Pump is costing you too much!

Introducing LEAP technology (Low Energy Air Pump)! This technology comes in 3 different housings including PTFE, Metal and Sanitary! The LEAP technology will do wonders for your maintenance costs due to its ability to start at low air pressure. Head to our Low Energy Diaphragm Pump page on our website to find out more!

If you’re worried about the costs associated with Air Pumps, then Tapflo have the solution in our article,‘Are your Diaphragm Pumps costing you too much?’, where you can find out about the benefits of switching to LEAP.
