FLUX barrel pumps also called drum pumps are designed for transferring, emptying or dosing must existing fluids, from low to high viscosity products, these pumps are typically used for fluids that are supplied in containers such as 205 litre/45 gallon drums/barrels, 1000 litre containers called IBC's or Intermediate Bulk Container and also smaller containers 25 litre, 100 litre etc. By using a barrel pump we can avoid having to tip up the container in order to emptying it something than can often be quite dangerous and illegal thus using a drum/barrel pump is the safest and more efficient way of extracting liquid from a drum or container as wastage/spillage during the operation is next to nothing.

 

There are several pump tube lengths each designed specifically for the various drums and containers available on the market, the most common are 1000 mm for 205 l drums, 1200 mm for IBC's and 700 mm for smaller containers - 25 litre jerry cans, 100 litre tanks etc..

 

Flux high viscosity barrel pumps are positive displacement mechanically sealed eccentric worm-drive pumps also called progressing cavity pumps, this highly engineered range of pumps is typically used for transferring highly viscous fluids within the industrial, food, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries, these pumps are available in both vertical and horizontal arrangements to suit a wide variety of containers or specific installations. These range of pumps are divided in two types, the F550 industrial range and the F560 sanitary pumps for food-grade or hygienic applications, both pump types are commonly used to transfer a wide range of products from medium to high viscosity fluids, up to 80,000 cPs. The Flux F550 and F560 pump range is particularly useful for shear sensitive products as thanks to being progressing cavity pumps they are incredibly gentle on the product being pumped.

 

These high viscosity positive displacement barrel pumps are suitable for both fixed and mobile installations as besides from the standard vertical barrel/drum pump execution they can also be supplied trolley mounted or with a baseplate for horizontal arrangements. ATEX, 3A (FDA) certifications are also available upon request. All models are available with electric or air operated motors, can also be supplied with a VFD/VSD rated motor for variable speed/capacity requirements.

 

These sanitary pump range has been specifically developed for the food, beverage, and pharmaceutical industry, the F560 S food-grade pump is available with FDA and 3A certification which means this sanitary pump complies with the highest European and American hygienic standards.

FAQS

The standard tubeset lengths are 700 mm for smaller containers - 25 litre jerry cans, 100 litre tanks etc, 1000 mm for 205 litre drums and 1200 mm for IBC's. Other bespoke lengths are available on request.
The food grade connections for this pump range include; 1 1/2” Tri-clamp and RD 58x1/6. Please contact a member of our sales team if another connection type is required.
Please note that the standards vary by model. Our food grade barrel pumps comply with standards FDA and 3A for use in the food, beverage, chemical, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries.
The body of the pump and the welds are polished and treated to very high standards, this greatly minimises dead zones. They are very easy to disassemble, making the process quick and pain free.
There are various motor types, including; air motor and mains powered electric. Selection is either a personal preference or due to site limitations. For instance, if an air compressor is not available on site, then a mains powered motor is the obvious choice. The power of the motor will be down to the application details, such as viscosity and flow rate required. An Atex motor will be required if the fluid is flammable or if the pump will be installed in a hazardous area.
ATEX is an abbreviation of “Atmospheres Explosibles”. It is a regulation set out by the European Union to ensure the safety of products that are used to handle flammable products or are installed in environments containing flammable gases, vapours, mists or combustible dusts. For instance, if the pump is being installed in an explosive environment, then only the motor needs to meet the Atex standard stopping it from causing a spark during operation and igniting the atmosphere. However, if the fluid being pumped is flammable, then the pump will also need to meet Atex standards to ensure that no sparks are caused inside the pump itself when the fluid goes through it. It is crucial that an Atex rated pump or motor are used for applications involving explosive environments or flammable fluids, using a non-Atex pump or motor in these situations is extremely dangerous and contravenes health and safety standards.
Please be aware that the figures displayed relate to the largest pump from this range of products, not specific models. For details on viscosity for specific models, please refer to datasheets or contact a member of our sales team.
