Tapflo UK is proud to offer our High-Pressure Peristaltic Pump suitable for high-pressure applications. Ideal for handling fragile and shear sensitive fluids. The Pump has been designed with an easy dismantling operation in mind, meaning minimal downtime and ease of use for operators. The pump features a hose manufactured from high-quality compound rubbers that are reinforced with braided polyamide layers to handle the technology’s use of compression. Our hoses last approximately 30% longer than other hoses on the market.
To protect the bearing of the gearbox against penetration of the lubricant or the pumped liquid we fit a lip seal around a hard shaft ring. If the hose ruptures, the pumped product damages the seal instead of penetrating the gearbox. Our casting is also fitted with a Leakage Channel, which must be kept open to the atmosphere.
The PT Peristaltic Pump Series employs a Vecobloc system which is very easy to dismantle. Done by unscrewing an Expandable Hub. Many of our competitor’s pumps have complex assemblies which means that wheel dismantling is often not possible in situ or by the customer.
The PT Peristaltic Pump is ideal for high-pressure transfer, metering and dosing applications of low or high viscous products. Typical industries and applications include:
Food & Beverage: Beer Yeast, Olive Oil, Wine, Egg, Milk, Yoghurts, Cake Dough, Mash Potato, Tomato Sauce
Paint: Water-based paint, Acrylics, Ink, Pigments
Pharmaceutical and Cosmetics: Chemical dosing, Shampoo, Syrups
Chemical and Petrochemical: PVDF Latex, Alcohol, Soap, Non-aromatic Solvents
Pump and Paper: Latex, Kaolin, Paper Waste Sludge
Ceramics: Filter press feeding, Plaster, Light Concrete, Cement Flooring
Surface Treatment: Abrasive waste fluids, Acids, Alkalis
Anaerobic Digestion: Digestate, Waste Sludge
Agricultural: Manure, Fertilizer, Sugar Mills, Molasses, Liquid Sugar
Tapflo’s High Pressure Peristaltic Pump is typically used for transfer applications of abrasive, viscous, solids laden and corrosive fluids where a reliable and robust pump which offers high pressure and high flow rates is required. The PT Peristaltic Pump range is ideal for accurate control and can achieve pressures up to 15 Bar. We have combined the best materials with smart design solutions in order to maximise running time and minimise service intervals.
The principle of operation of the pumping action in the PT Peristaltic Pump is achieved by pinching a circular loop of rubber tube with two diametrically opposed rotating shoes. Due to the rotational movement, the fluid in the tubes is pushed ahead of each wedge. When each wedge reaches the end of the loop, the hose is released, and the wedge rotates to the start of the loop to begin a new cycle. As the wedge releases the reinforced tube, it immediately returns to its original shape, thereby ensuring positive suction and priming. Additionally, solids in suspension are never damaged by the rotating shoes as the shoes either force the solids forwards or backwards, never trapping them. This construction of the pump makes it a smart and effective choice for a wide range of pump applications.
