Oil Pumps can be used for a wide variety of oil applications, varying in viscosities. Some of the most common pump types used are centrifugal pumps, peristaltic pumps, gear pumps and progressive cavity pumps. These pump types offer many different benefits for the oil industry and the versatility to pump both industrial and hygienic oil substances. Take a look below at some of our pump options here at Tapflo UK to find the best-suited system for your application.

Oil pumps for hygienic applications
Centrifugal pumps are possibly one of the common choices for oil applications due to them being a highly versatile pump system on the market that can be customised to suit client’s needs. Here at Tapflo, we have a wide range of centrifugal pumps available to pump oil applications, including the hygienic centrifugal pump, ideal for all food-grade substances, including edible cooking oils. It features a stainless steel AISI 316L casing meeting the demands of cleanability and can pump substances with a viscosity up to ~200 cSt. Take a look at everything the CTH hygienic centrifugal pump has to offer here.
Peristaltic pumps are another excellent option for edible oil applications and benefit from a highly efficient pump system. They offer low maintenance costs and design for the operator to quickly and easily change the hose inside if required. They are also ideal for transfer, metering, and dosing applications capable of pumping low and high viscous products.
Oil pumps for industrial applications
A progressive cavity pump is a great option for pumping oils with the ability to pump super thin and thick fluids. Tapflo’s Wobble pump is an excellent low-cost solution that can pump a range of industrial based oil applications, including oil sludges, mineral oil, sludge and greases. The wobble pump from the nova rotas diamond series features a modular design that can reach up to 48 bar pressures.
Another range that is ideal for industrial oil applications is from a French manufacturing company called Jump. We proudly supply their pump systems at Tapflo UK including disc pumps and a sliding vane pump system.
