Innovating the way pumps handle the harshest applications

Where other pumps fail, Discflo pumps excel.

In severe applications where abrasion, viscosity, entrained air, excessive wear, and corrosion problems wreak havoc on pump systems, Discflo has developed a superior alternative. Our patented pump technology dramatically reduces pump wear, is virtually clog free, and prevents product damage.

Discflo Corporation was founded in 1982 and quickly became an industry leader in the hard- to-pump market and throughout the world.

Discflo disc pumps provide non-impingement pumping, which means less wear and more protection for your product.

No Close Tolerances

The disc pump is not a centrifugal pump, positive displacement, gear, or lobe pump. Unique in design, the disc pump bridges the performance gaps and is capable of out-performing most conventional pumps in many applications.

No Radial Loads

A boundary layer of fluid molecules collects and rotates with the discs. This creates a natural, protective buffer that separates the pump from the fluid.

Non Pulsating, Laminar Flow

Through viscous drag, fluid is pulled through the pump without impingement.
The boundary layer attracts and drags successive layers of fluid molecules
 into layered flows of parallel streams. This is the simple principle of viscous drag, 
and, in the disc pump, it is a powerful dynamic force that “pulls” the fluid
through the pump in a smooth, laminar, non-turbulent flow.

Rotary discs provide non-impingement pumping, which means 
less wear and more protection for your product.

The non-impingement and laminar flow pumping of the disc pump is similar to flow through an ordinary pipe. The layers of fluid at the walls are stationary (relative to the rotating discs), creating a protective boundary layer. Viscous drag pulls layers into flows of smooth laminar streams.

With no impingement device to damage your product, and a boundary layer of protection for the pump, the disc pump effectively eliminates the root cause of clogging, cavitation, excessive wear and product damage that plague the performance of conventional pumps. Discflo is reliable, efficient, and highly cost effective in handling tough applications. It simply lasts longer, requires fewer (if any) repairs, and doesn’t damage your product.
