Can I use a TC LEAP Pump with any application?

Our TC Pump with low energy technology can be used for any application where a standard Diaphragm Pump is already being used. The low energy pump technology ensures that the Diaphragm Pump can’t stall, which means when being used in a process critical application, it offers increased reliability and reduced downtime.

Is a Low Energy Pump always better than standard Diaphragm Pump technology?

Yes – any application using a standard Diaphragm Pump can gain additional benefits from the TC range, including lower operational costs or increased control. The benefits are specific to different installations and are dependent on what your business is looking for, as well as the application.

What pumps can low energy technology be fitted to? Can it be retrofitted, or do I need a new pump?

Our low energy technology can be retrofitted to all Tapflo, Dellmeco and Almatec Diaphragm Pumps. You don’t need to buy any special parts, just swap out the centre section of your current Diaphragm Pump for a new TC centre section.
