SLES, a widely used surfactant renowned for its foaming and cleansing properties, is a crucial ingredient in cosmetics and common household products such as soaps, detergents, shampoos and liquid body gels. Typically, SLES is purchased at a high viscosity concentration of 70%. However, to seamlessly integrate it into your process line, it needs to be diluted down to approximately 27%. Buying SLES at a 27% concentration can be a significant financial investment for companies. And manually mixing the 70% concentrate is time consuming, ineffective and inaccurate, often leading to affected end-product integrity.

With Tapflo UK’s SLES Mixing & Dilution Pump System, manufacturers gain complete control over the dilution process, ensuring a homogenous and stable SLES solution every time.

System Components:

Our SLES Mixing & Dilution Pump System incorporates top-of-the-line components to ensure optimal performance and reliability:


  • Progressive Cavity Pump: perfect for feeding the highly viscous 70% SLES solution without compromising product integrity
  • Centrifugal Pump: ideal for mixing SLES with water and pumping the solution, generating internal turbulence for effective mixing during transfer

Control & Automation:

  • Control unit including PLC with touch screen for seamless operation
  • Pressure and temperature transmitters
  • Frequency inverters
  • Flow meters for precise monitoring and control
  • Valves with a dedicated control system for efficient regulation


  • Piping: AISI 316 Stainless Steel for durability and resistance to corrosion
  • Frame: AISI 304 Stainless Steel for robust construction
