Piston Dosing Pump 110 L / Hour at 17.0 Bar

Piston Dosing Pump TAP15-38 with PVC head

TAP15-38 Piston Dosing Pump available with a choice of 3 gearbox sizes, with either PVC or Stainless Steel head materials.

TAP15-38 Piston Dosing Pump Introduction

The TAP15-38 Piston Dosing Pump works on a cavity displacement principle with a reciprocating piston causing a linear volumetric displacement to enable steady, even and continuous chemical metering.

As a process device, the TAP15-38 is designed to deliver a defined amount of chemical reagent with high precision. Manufactured with an aluminium body and foot mounting stand, the TAP15-38 is designed to be horizontally mounted and connected to a process using the 3/8" BSP connections.

The TAP15-38 is driven from a 3 phase 0.37kW 400VAC motor and is also available with a single phase 0.55kW 230VAC motor.

TAP15-38 Piston Dosing Pump Head Options

The TAP15-38 Dosing Pump is available with a choice of two head material types, either all manufactured in 316 Stainless Steel or in PVC with a ceramic piston.  The piston has a 15mm stroke length and a diameter of 38mm.

As well as the head material, the other liquid end components, otherwise known as the wetted parts, which constitute the materials in contact with the solution to be dosed.  The options available provide greater compatibility with a range of chemicals.

Head MaterialPiston MaterialSeal MaterialBall Valve MaterialValve Seat MaterialConnections
PVC Ceramic Viton / EPDM Ceramic PTFE 3/8" BSP
Stainless Steel 316 Stainless Steel Viton / EPDM 316 Stainless Steel 316 Stainless Steel 3/8" BSP

The TAP15-38 makes use of a double ball valve for both the suction side and discharge side of the pump.  This aids both the priming of the pump and ensures precision chemical delivery during operation.

The valve seats are available in either EPDM or Viton (© DuPont / Chemours) and we recommend checking our chemical compatibility database and check with your chemical supplier, to ensure that all the parts of the liquid end are compatible with the chemical to be dosed.

TAP15-38 Gear Box Options

As with all the pumps in our TAP range, the TAP15-38 is available with a fixed speed gear box to give either 58 strokes per minute, 78 strokes per minute or 116 strokes per minute.

By increasing the number of strokes per minute, the output flow rate of the pump changes as per the following table:-

Model NumberStrokes / MinuteLitres / HourMax Pressure (316 SS)Max Pressure (PVC)Connections
TAP15-38-58 58 0 - 55.0 17.0 Bar 10.0 Bar 3/8" BSP
TAP15-38-78 78 0 - 73.0 17.0 Bar 10.0 Bar 3/8" BSP
TAP15-38-116 116 0 - 110.0 17.0 Bar 10.0 Bar 3/8" BSP

Piston Dosing Pump Adjustable Flow Rate

The TAP15-38 has a micrometer stroke length adjustment dial, mounted at the side of the pump. This allows the stroke length to be reduced from the maximum length of 15mm to anywhere between 0 - 100% of the strokes full output.  To maintain accuracy, however, we don't advocate running the pump below 20% of the rated output.

TAP15-38 Features & Benefits

The TAP15-38 piston dosing pump is a foot mounting piston dosing pump, designed to be secured on a horizontal surface to deliver a chemical reagent to a process.  With accurately machined and assembled components, the TAP15-38 is designed to meter a defined volume of chemical steadily and evenly into a process, with high precision.

The TAP15-38 can be fitted with either a 0.37kW 3 phase 415 VAC motor or a 0.55kW 3 phase 230 VAC motor.

Each motor drives a gearbox which either outputs 58, 78, or 116 strokes per minute with an output of 55.0 Litres / Hour, 73.0 Litres / Hour, or 110.0 Litres / Hour respectively. Each option has a maximum pressure output of 17.0 Bar, when using a 316 Stainless Steel Head or 10.0 Bar with the head material in PVC.  Both options have 3/8" BSP connections for easy connecting directly into a process.

The TAP15-38 includes a range of options for the liquid end or wetted parts, including options for 316 Stainless Steel, or PVC with a ceramic piston and either Viton or EPDM seals / O-rings.

With a micrometer adjustment, the output rate of the pump can be user adjusted between 0 - 100% of the flow rate to give greater control over your chemical dosing.

The TAP15-38 is fully compatible with a range of dosing accessories including: pulsation dampeners, anti-syphon, back pressure and safety valves.
