There are multiple chemical pump options on the market today that can be used to transfer hazardous fluids such as solvents, acids, petrol, and alcohol. Tapflo manufactures suitable solutions for the chemical industry using high-quality, premium materials to ensure the long life of your pump.

All Tapflo Plastic Diaphragm Pumps (Air-Operated Double Diaphragm Pumps) are made from polyethylene (PE) or virgin PTFE and are suitable for handling almost any kind of liquid whether it is viscous, chemically aggressive, or with solids.

Polyethylene (PE) has a superior wear resistance which is 6 – 7 times better than polypropylene (PP). This fact makes the pump suitable for handling abrasive slurries etc. PE is resistant to most kinds of aggressive chemicals such as concentrated acids and alkalis. The maximum liquid temperature is 70°C. Tapflo uses different grades of PE depending on the part. For valve seats and ball stoppers, which are most vulnerable to wear - UHMW PE1000 is used for best mechanical strength and abrasion resistance. PTFE (polytetrafluorethylene) is a thermoplastic polymer with superior chemical resistance. The PTFE pump can handle even the most aggressive acids. The maximum liquid temperature is 110°C.

Tapflo also supplies Barrier Diaphragm Pump (available in PE and PTFE) that are equipped with a barrier system on both sides of the pump. It protects the pump internals from chemical attack in case of diaphragm break and, with dedicated accessories, also protects the environment from contamination and product from waste.

Tapflo diaphragms are of composite construction, superior for continuous heavy-duty service, with a completely smooth surface in contact with the liquid.

Our TD series Drum pumps are designed for mobility, easy and safe handling. They are mostly used for unloading barrels and IBC containers.

If you need pumps that are intended also for use in explosion hazardous environments Tapflo can offer ATEX-rated pumps that can be utilized in Ex-zone 1 and Ex-zone 0. The conductive material ensures that no electrostatic loads will be accumulated on the pump. The conductive pigment in the material reduces the surface resistance. Transfer of alcohol and solvents are examples of applications for the Tapflo TX and TZ pumps.
