Pneumatic batch control

Tapflo’s totally pneumatic batcher can control any Tapflo AODD pump to produce accurate and repeatable dispensed volumes. Fully programmable allowing you to set the batch amount (TPUK-BP) or batch time (TPUK-BT). Available also with internal mounted control to prevent unauthorized adjustments (TPUK-BPI and TPUK-BTI).

The pneumatic batch unit allows you to set and pump a certain number of pump strokes – all this without any electricity. The system is easily applied on all Tapflo pumps. Only the exhaust muffler has to modified with a hose connection.

How it works
When the batch is started, the unit will count the number of pump strokes the pump is doing. The pump strokes are sensed from the variation of pressure in the air exhaust by a pressure switch (placed in the counter unit).

Filling containers of various volumes
Let us say that you are using a T50 to fill containers of the sizes 5, 10 and 25 litres. What you first once have to do is to manually prime the different volumes and record have many strokes the pump needs. For future batching, just enter the number of strokes and press "start". The batch unit will start the pump, count down and finally stop the pump when the batch is finished.


TPUK-BP

The Pneumatic Batcher is a fully pneumatic predetermining counter system which records pump strokes as a series of low-pressure pulses from the air exhaust of an AODD pump, stopping the pump once a pre-set number of strokes have been recorded, thus controlling the volume of product dispensed by the pump.
The predetermining counter is mounted externally, allowing the user to adjust the preset value as required.

Installation TPUK-BP
1 TPUK-BP batch control
2 AODD pump
3 Blocking/needle valve
4 Muffler with connection/adjuster
P Air supply to batch control
P1 Air supply to pump

TPUK-BPI

The predetermining counter is mounted internally, preventing the user from adjusting the preset value.
Access to the predetermining counter to adjust the preset value is made using a screwdriver to release the hinged lid.


TPUK-BT

The Pneumatic Timed Batcher is a fully pneumatic run time controller for use with an AODD pump. The pump can be started locally or remotely, stopping automatically once the set time has elapsed, thus controlling the volume of product dispensed by the pump.
The timer is mounted externally, allowing the user to adjust the set time as required.

Installation TPUK-BT
1 TPUK-BT time batch control
2 AODD pump
3 Blocking/needle valve
P Air supply to batch control
P1 Air supply to pump

TPUK-BTI

The timer is mounted internally, preventing the user from adjusting the set time.
Access to the timer to adjust the set time is made using a screwdriver to release the hinged lid.
