The Flux F550S eccentric worm drive drum pump, is designed to transfer highly viscous fluids up to 80,000 CP and even process paste-like fluids from drum or IBC, such as pastes, soaps, paints and adhesives. Equipped with a robust bearing flange that provides additional support, this barrel pump is perfect for continuously running applications. Due to the progressive cavity style design, this high viscosity pump provides smooth flow at constant pressure, ensuring little disruption to the pumped product and offering low shear liquid transfer. The F550S viscous fluid pump can be used in fixed installations, but also it is a portable pumping solution that can be easily moved between drums and IBCS. Easy to disassemble and clean, this Flux barrel pump is a perfect solution for many industrial applications.

The stator of the F550S barrel pump can be supplied in various materials, making it a versatile solution for any application involving transferring high viscosity fluids. This Flux electric drum pump can handle fluids containing solids up to 8mm and is also available with ATEX certification for flammable fluids or environment. The motor options for these drum pumps include three-phase electric motors and air motors, and the sealing options include a mechanical seal or stuffing box.

Viscous Resin Transfer for Stamp Manufacturer - Barrel Pump

Viscous Resin Transfer for Stamp Manufacturer - Barrel Pump

Castle Pumps have a wide customer base including many manufacturing companies in different industries. As a result, there are very few liquids or pumped medium that we do not have experience in specifying a solution for. In this instance, the customer were struggling to find a pump for photopolymer resin, yet our experience knew that a progressive cavity barrel pump would be ideal.

The F550S barrel pump is known as a progressive cavity or eccentric worm drive pump, able to transfer high viscosity fluids from a barrel or IBC. As a Flux pumps supplier, we can supply this viscous fluid pump with an electric or compressed air motor.

  • High-quality barrel pump – Flux pumps are well known German-made barrel pumps that have been in the market for over 70 years.
  • Wide viscosity range - This electric drum pump for chemicals can handle both low and high viscosity fluids up to 80,000cP, making it an ideal solution for transferring even paste-like fluids.
  • Solids – Flux F550S barrel pump can handle hard and soft solid particles up to 8 mm in diameter.
  • Suitable for shear-sensitive liquids - This high viscosity pump has a smooth flow at constant pressure offering low shear, pulsation-free liquid transfer.
  • Easy to disassemble and move - The F550S can be easily taken apart for cleaning, and due to the lightweight design, it can be quickly moved between barrels and IBCs. 

This Flux pump is a versatile pumping solution for a range of industrial applications involving viscous, shear sensitive fluids with solids. Due to its unique features, this electric barrel pump can provide smooth pumping and low wear as there are no valves, vanes etc.
