Progressive cavity design for pumping low to high-viscosity media

High viscosity barrel and container pumps

FLUX progressive cavity pumps are suitable for pumping low to high-viscosity fluids. These positive displacement type pumps ensure low turbulence, constant delivery pressure and provide gentle, pulsation-free operation. Series 550 pumps are used in industrial applications and Series 560 pumps are designed for the pharmaceutical, food and cosmetics industries. All pumps can be used mobile and stationary, and the simple, robust design ensures the pumps are easy to disassemble.

There are versions for immersing in the liquid or for dry installation outside the container; versions with explosion protection, 3A certification and FLUX FOOD pumps (Directive (EC) 1935/2004 and FDA CFR 21 compliant). For connection of the motor there is a choice between bearing flange mounting (S) and gearbox mounting (GS). For pumping especially high-viscosity media, there are ViscoFlux drum emptying systems with progressive cavity pumps.
