Hygienic Drum pump operation

Drum pumps, as the name suggests, are designed to suit standard types of drums and to easily pump fluids out of drums or barrels.

In addition to standard drum pumps, we supply pump solutions for unloading other containers such as Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBCs), Totes, Eurobins, mixer bowls and even custom tanks.

There is no better way to empty a drum than by using a drum pump!

Commonly regarded simply as a drum (or IBC) length tube and powered by an electric or pneumatic motor, we offer these and much more!

Our drum pump solutions cater for all fluids and suit all shapes and sizes of containers.

We even offer sophisticated and powerful drum unloading systems that pump non-flowing products such as petroleum jelly, toothpaste, mascara or concentrated tomato paste.

Typical Applications

Drum pumps for non-viscous fluids

A common application is to pump from drums containing thin, low viscosity fluids such as fruit juice, ethanol, food oils etc. and this can be done using our ranges of centrifugal impeller type drum & IBC pumps.

Viscous drum pumps

For thicker, high viscosity fluids and semi-solids stored inside drums or containers, we supply screw type drum pumps for fluids up to 100,000 centiPoise and for thicker fluids up to 1,000,000 centiPoise, we supply twin screw and piston pumps suitable for pumping materials like petroleum jelly, mascara, tomato paste and other non-flowing media.

 

Bung hole drum pumps

Pumps for tight lid drums with ‘bungholes’

Drum or ‘stick’ pumps that are inserted into drums with ‘bungholes’.

 

Pumps for open top drums (cone-shape / parallel sides)

Pump high viscosity fluids and non-flowing media from open top drums with or without liners.

 

Pumps for IBCs Intermediate Bulk Containers

Solutions for pumping flowing or semi-flowing fluids from an IBC via top or bottom outlets.

 

Pumps for Eurobins and tote bins

Pump out of open-top Eurobins and tote bins – even highly viscous media.

 

Pumps for open top IBCs and bulk crates

Unload large bulk IBCs, tanks and crates in minutes (with or without liners) with a bespoke system.

 

Pumps for open top industrial mixer bowls

Pump viscous mixtures like dough directly from your open top mixing bowl.

 

Drum pumps for drums with ‘bunghole’ lids

Also suitable for open top drums, tanks and other containers.

DRUM PUMP ACCESSORY

Pump Lift

Battery powered lift designed for raising / lowering pumps into drums and tanks.

The mobile lift system is ideal for food processing and sanitary environments where water, foam and cleaning agents are present.

IBC pumps

Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBC) pumps for unloading IBCs via the top outlet port. Pumps and suction lances with immersion depth of 1200mm.

Centrifugal IBC Pumps

Centrifugal type IBC pumps are suitable for flowing fluids up to a maximum viscosity of 1,000 centipoise.

Hygienic high viscosity drum pump

Progressive Cavity IBC Pumps

Progressive cavity (screw rotor & stator) type IBC pumps are suitable for viscous fluids from 1,000 to 100,000 centipoise.

IBC Pump

Flexible Impeller IBC Pumps

An out-of-the-box IBC pumping kit featuring a flexible impeller pump, hoses, suction lance, nozzle and IBC mounting bracket.

High Viscosity Drum Pumps

We can pump tomato concentrates, petroleum jelly, mascara and many other non-flowing materials with viscosities higher than 100,000 centiPoise and from various sized open top drums. We minimise waste and our systems work on both parallel and slightly tapered conical shaped drums – even those with plastic bag liners inside.

PowerPrime

The PowerPrime solution is a single post pneumatic unit with piston pump on a follower-plate which can pump products up to 150,000 centiPoise – even when pumped cold.

MaxiPrime

A twin cylinder pressure priming system with a ‘stubby’ piston pump that pumps ultra viscous media – works on viscosities up to 1,000,000 centiPoise!

Articulated PowerPrime

The articulated arm enables the pump to transfer products from pallet mounted drums without removing the drums from the pallet, which avoids manual issues.

QDU drum unloader pump

Twin Screw Pump Drum Unloader

Pulsation-free, low energy, Clean-In-Place Drum Pump Solution

The QDU is a drum unloader system that is fully designed around an integrated twin screw pump driven by an electric motor to offer an alternative to pneumatic systems and to reduce energy consumption.

Safe and efficient handling of high viscosity products up to 1,000,000 cPs and allowing flows up to 227 litres per minute depending on the viscosity.

Viscous Eurobin Tote pump

Eurobin & Tote Bin Pumps

Pump out of open top Eurobins and tote bins – even highly viscous media.

With a Eurobin / Tote bin pump, you can increase yield, reduce waste, reduce manual labour, reduce cleaning time and increase productivity.

Viscous IBC pump MegaPrime

Pumps for open top IBCs and bulk crates

Unload large bulk IBCs, tanks, vessels and crates with or without liners in minutes with a bespoke system.

Our systems work on circular, square or rectangular shaped containers and are designed to suit the exact dimensions of your vessel.

For faster unloading, systems can be deployed with multiple pumps that run simultaneously.

Hygienic Drum Pumps

Hygienic drum pumps for all viscosities

Our range of drum pumps are suitable for barrels, IBCs, Eurobins, totes, mixers etc. and we can pump anything from water to concentrated tomato paste.
