The Flux Viscoflux Barrel Pump is a cost-effective barrel unloading system for the transfer of highly viscous, pasty and non-free-flowing products from a drum. This Flux barrel pump is suitable for transferring a wide range of high viscosity fluid, including resins, wool wax, liquid PVC, cosmetic products and even materials, which gasify or react with oxygen. The system can be used in conjunction with any 200-litre barrel with a lid and is safe due to the material's hermetic sealing.

This high viscosity drum pump ensures that only less than 1% of the product remains after pumping, meaning there is low disposal costs due to the small residual quantity left in the drum. The follower plate system hermetically seals the pumped product, the pumping action pulls the plate down the barrel, ensuring that virtually no product remains attached to the drum wall. Easy to dismantle, this electric drum pump can be cleaned and/or serialised, making it a perfect solution for industrial and food grade application.

Viscoflux high viscosity pump has user-friendly handling due to the control unit's easy operation and the integrated transport device, providing high flexibility. This Flux barrel pump's progressive cavity style design ensures a smooth pumping, pulsation-free action with little disturbance to the pumped product. Compare to other stationary systems, the Viscoflux drum pump has a low initial cost and can be adjusted to various applications due to an extensive range of accessories (flow meters, hoses, fittings and valves, etc.). Available with a three-phase or compressed-air motor, this viscous fluid pump provides customised performance based on your requirements. The unique Viscoflux electric drum pump emptying system is also available in FDA approved models for food processing, cosmetic and pharmaceutical applications.

  • Low initial purchase costs compared to other stationary systems
  • Suitable for high viscosity, pasty and non- free flowing products (up to 50,000CP)
  • High flexibility due system mobility
