The Tapflo series will be available in three sizes for sterile applications in primarily the pharmaceutical, bio-technology and foodstuff industries. The company says that due to its special design this is the first Tapflo series to be approved according to European Hygienic Engineering Design Group (EHEDG) regulations. EHEDG is the leading organisation for hygienic industry equipment certification in Europe.
The Tapflo aseptic pump series will come in three sizes and cover most market needs. The first to be launched is the smallest, with a maximum flow of 94 litres per minute.
In order for a pump to be EHEDG certified the pump must not feature any internal horizontal surfaces. The reason for this is to prevent any liquid from remaining in the pump after it stops. The pumps are supplied on a platform that allows them to be rotated. Rotation allows the pumps to be emptied and cleaned simply, without dismantling.
