Castle Pumps received an enquiry from a new customer in the UK that was looking to feed an adhesive fluid to a bead applicator for use in timber construction. The customer wanted to gravity feed the fluid from the bottom of an IBC to a piece of machinery that applies the highly viscous fluid in a specific way to products in their production line.


Our first consideration was the high viscosity of the fluid, which was 4000 - 5000cP, so immediately we selected a gear pump for the application knowing it would be more than capable of handling the thickness of the fluid. After consulting with the customer we settled on a 90deg configuration as we are always cautious of the space available and pride ourselves on our ability to cater for any special requests. Using a gear pump running at such a low speed we were able to achieve the low flow rate required by the customer to feed into his production line.
