TAPFLO is introducing a new series of diaphragm pumps, this time electrically operated, an innovation the Swedish company describes as a more eco-friendly approach to the traditional air operated diaphragm pumps (AODD) pump.
Katarzyna Szałkowska from Tapflo Group Marketing Team said the new electrically operated double diaphragm (EODD) Pumps were still based on the original diaphragm pump technology, which had proved to be very successful.
"We have consulted our clients, who show a demand to get the functions and benefits of a traditional diaphragm pump but with the added advantage of lower operating costs.”
Szałkowska added that its low energy cost and clean and easy maintenance means the EODD pump does not place a heavy burden on the environment. It is powered by a highly efficient electrical drive (IE3 class) and there is no chance of hydraulic fluid leakage because the pump simply does not need one.
The new EODD pump has an almost identical design of the wetted side as standard Tapflo air operated diaphragm pump, therefore, it inherits most of its advantages and most of the spare parts are the same.
"After several months of designing, testing and inspecting the products, it has all paid off and we are finally ready to launch them! With great joy and pride, we present to you our new family member, thus expanding our product portfolio,” said Jakub Zduńczyk Product Engineer at Tapflo.
EODD pumps can distribute liquids with temperatures of up to 110° C and flow rates up to 220 l/min. According to the company, they are suitable for applications that require low pulsation or as an energy-saving alternative to their air operated counterparts.
