Drum emptying systems VISCOFLUX

The unique VISCOFLUX drum emptying system is used by various industries for fast, cost-effective conveying of highly viscous, pasty and non-free flowing media. It guarantees virtually complete and gentle emptying from standard drums with lids.

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 partial vacuum 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. 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.

Features:

  • 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
  • Overall system has little dead space
  • Use of high-quality materials

Advantages:

  • Low initial purchase costs compared to stationary systems
  • High flexibility due to mobility of the system
  • Low disposal costs due to small residual quantity in the drum
  • Process safety even if the pumping process is interrupted during emptying due to hermetic sealing off the material
  • Fast cleaning thanks to dismantling with a few hand movements
  • User-friendly handling due to easy operation of the control unit and integrated transport device
  • Customized performance due to individually select able three-phase or compressed-air motor in conjunction with a suitable eccentric worm-drive pump
  • Easy system extension due to extensive range of accessories (flow meters, hoses, fittings and valves, etc.)
  • Compliant with FDA CFR 21

Application:

  • Vaseline (including from drums with inliners)
  • Cosmetic products such as creams, mascara
