VISCOFLUX Drum Emptying System

For pumping highly viscous media from drums with lids

  • Pumps materials that are not free flowing, even from drums with in-liners
  • Residual quantity in the drum <1 %
  • Mobile use, simply transport to the drum
  • Combination of pump and motor can be individually designed for the material to be pumped (modular design)
  • Eccentric screw pump for careful, low-turbulence pumping, handles the materials gently
  • Follower plate seals off the material, airtight
  • Flexible sealing lip ensures that virtually no material is left behind on the drum wall
  • The overall system has little dead space
  • Use of high-quality materials
  • Easy to operate control unit with dead man’s switch for the traversing movement
  • Transport device with two eyebolts and pneumatic transport locking

The VISCOFLUX drum emptying system is mounted on the drum with a clamping ring so that the system and drum form a secure unit. When the material is pumped by the eccentric screw pump, a partialvacuum is created below the follower plate. This vacuum automatically pulls down the plate. The follower plate therefore hermetically seals the pumped material. In addition, its flexible sealing lip ensures that virtually no pumped material remains attached to the drum wall.

In this way the VISCOFLUX system achieves emptying with a residual quantity of less than 1%. This saves time and costs; there is no need for time-consuming subsequent cleaning of the drum by hand.tes
Another advantage of this drum emptying system is that different drive motors and eccentric screw pumps can be combined so that the system can be optimally designed for the material to be pumped.
