Air and electric drum pumps for the emptying of containers

Castle Pumps have been suppliers of barrel pumps for over 15 years; a truly versatile pumping solution for any fluid. Suitable for fuel, chemicals, fats, resins, paints, or food products, our electric drum pumps can handle low and high viscosity fluids, shear sensitive mediums and those with solid content. The beauty of the barrel pumps design is that they are easy to install, can be easily moved between drums and IBCs and do not require additional installation space. With some models being able to empty 99.98% of the fluid and others being used to mix as well as transfer, our range of electric drum pumps offer solutions for industrial, cosmetic, pharmaceutical and food processing applications. Working closely with the market and having extensive product knowledge, our technical sales can also provide product selection advice and help you select the right the drum pump for your application.

Past Barrel Pump Project

We have over 15 years of experience supplying air and electric drum pumps and have helped hundreds of clients find the best solution for their application.

Read our case study to find how we helped one of our clients, a food production company, that needed a foodgrade barrel pump to transfer the hot, viscous Bolognese sauce containing meat solids hygienically from production to packaging. We provided them with a completely bespoke drum pump kit with all the required features and supplied all within five working weeks.

Factors to consider when selecting a barrel pump

  • Type of container – whether it’s a small 25l tote, 205l litre drum or IBC this effects the immersion tube length required
  • Fluid – is the product being pumped corrosive, highly viscous, shear sensitive or contains solids?
  • Multiple uses – do you require one pump to be moved from container to container pumping different fluids?
  • Required approvals – is it a food grade application? Or maybe a flammable liquid requiring an ATEX motor?
  • Power – what power is available on site? Is an electric or air operated motor preferred?
