festo air treatment

Since February 1, Tapflo has provided air treatment systems with FESTO equipment. The air treatment system is a basic air-line set of equipment that increases lifetime and ensures proper operation of AODD pumps. FESTO has become Tapflo’s standard supplier of air treatment equipment to ensure high quality with competitive prices.

The standard FESTO air treatment set is not designed to be used in explosion hazardous environments, however, ATEX-compliant versions are available on request.

The air treatment system is made up of 4 main components:

  1. Filter regulator – cleans compressed air by straining the air and trapping solid particles
  2. Water separator – separates liquids contained in the compressed air
  3. Needle valve – adjusts exact speed of the pump to achieve requested duty point
  4. Connector & Mounting bracket – additional equipment for set-up and repair

Putting it all Together

diaphragm pump principle

The vital components described in our last post contribute to Tapflo’s simple, but efficient working principle. The diaphragm pump is driven by compressed air, which is distributed behind the diaphragms by the air valves.

The diaphragms are connected by a diaphragm shaft and are pushed back and forth when the air valve system cycles and pressurizes the air chambers. This enables the diaphragms to prime and push the liquid through the pump system.

Why diaphragm pumps are the most versatile in the market

Tapflo’s diaphragm pumps are best known for their simple operating principle and compact, reliable designs. The pump is composed of two vital components that allow its simple, but versatile design to meet the demands of heavy industrial duties.

Long life diaphragms

The pump’s diaphragms sandwich a metal core, making them ideal for continuous heavy duty service. The liquid comes into contact with a completely smooth surface, reinforced with two layers and reinforcement webbing. The lack of nuts and washers allows for no leakage and easy cleaning.

Pollution-free air valves

These air valves are made for maintenance-free duty with no lube air. They offer short air distribution ways and low friction sealing solutions that make for an energy saving and pollution free drive.
