Back in 2004 Tapflo delivered more than thirty diaphragm pumps to a hot dip galvanizing plant in Sweden. At that time this plant was one of the world’s most modern of its kind, with one manual and two fully automated facilities.
It was an explicit demand of the plant’s maintenance manager to use diaphragm pumps from Tapflo: – “Because I know it works!”
The pumps are used to pump wastewater, acid, lye and flux to various parts of the treatment plant. All pumps are made of polyethylene (PE) with diaphragms in PTFE, a proven solution in the surface treatment industry. They have lived up to the expectations and most of the pumps are still running since they were put into operation more than 14 years ago.
