Tapflo has launched a plastic version of its CT centrifugal pumps family; the CTP pump for aggressive liquids containing solid particles.
The new Tapflo CTP pumps are available with BSP thread, flange or hose connections. They can be used for chemically corrosive and toxic liquids as well as for clean and thin liquids like pure chemicals, acids and alkalis because the wetted components are non-metallic, injection moulded thermoplastics which enable high levels of corrosion resistance.
The version in glass fibre reinforced polypropylene (PP-GF) is designed for liquid temperatures up to 70°C and the PolyVinylidine DiFluoride (PVDF) version has high chemical resistance for temperatures up to 80°C – 90°C.
The new pump is equipped with a drainage option, intended to protect the motor against contact with any aggressive medium and it can pump solid particles up to 3mm in size and 10% in concentration and can handle metallic particles.
The CTP pumps from Tapflo can be used to transfer chemicals from storage tanks, for the filtering and circulation of surface treatment baths, the pumping of CIP detergent used for cleaning of pipes and other food process equipment as well as the dosing of acids and alkalis used as cleaning chemicals in nano filtration.
