Tapflo doesn’t just supply Industrial Process Pumps, we also supply to those industries requiring Sanitary Pumps. In fact, did you know that Tapflo UK sold more Sanitary Diaphragm Pumps in 2018, 2017 and 2016 than any other Tapflo in the world? So, it’s safe to say we know what we’re doing!
Industries requiring Sanitary Pumps include:
With such a variety of applications requiring a fully sanitary process, it’s important that Tapflo have a large range of pumps that are up to the job. We have spent time building up our portfolio and creating lasting business relationships with several pump manufacturers. So, what exactly can Tapflo UK offer for sanitary applications?

Our range of Sanitary Pumps come with hygienic certification which ensures that the pump has been manufactured to the highest standards. It is important for products being pumped to be handled by a Hygienic Pump if they are intended for consumption or close contact with the body. Our pumps come FDA approved or with EHEDG certification. FDA approval ensures that a product has met certain safety and hygiene standards. EHEDG stands for European Hygienic Engineering and Design Group. EHEDG certification means that food is ‘processed and packaged hygienically using hygienic equipment’.

Our Sanitary Product Portfolio has been developed to meet the highest standards. Pumps are manufactured from Stainless Steel AISI 316L and have a surface finish of 0.8 as standard or 0.5 upon request. This ensures that the internals of the pump is smooth with no areas for bacteria to grow.
Several of our pumps support CIP or SIP (Clean In Place or Sterilisation In Place). This ensures that the pump can be cleaned efficiently as the pump can be cleaned when the pipework is flushed through, without having to remove the pump from its installation.
One difference in our range is a Peristaltic Pump. When the product is transferred by this type of pump, it only comes into contact with the hose. We supply hoses that are designed for sanitary and hygienic applications: The NR Food hose is manufactured from Natural Rubber with a CE 1935-2004 certificate and FDA approval. The NBR Food hose is manufactured from Nitrile Buna, again with a CE 1935-2004 certificate and FDA approval.
