Barrel Pumps

Barrel pumps for transferring liquids from drums and IBC's

Drum pumps

The FLUX name has been associated with barrel pumps for over 65 years. Flux introduced the world's first electric barrel pump back in 1950 and has been innovating ever since. 1953 - First ATEX barrel pump, 2003 - First brushless ATEX barrel pump motor, 2014 - First brushless battery motor for barrel pumps. Flux pumps are used in the toughest applications by some of the world's largest companies for example, Rolls-Royce, Shell, BASF and Haribo. 

Select F300 or F400 series pump depending on duty cycle and application - both are axial impeller designs providing pulsation free pumping action.  Pumps are available for industrial, agricultural, cosmetics, pharmaceutical and chemical industries, including ATEX (Ex) approved pumps for handling flammable liquids.  FLUX food pumps are compliant with EC directive 1935/2004, FDA CFR 21 and some versions also have 3A sanitary approval. 

Flux can provide a complete range of barrel pump accessories including flowmeters, hoses, dispense nozzles and even complete automatic filling systems. The pump selection advice page will help you select the right pump for your application - alternatively call our sales team for further assistance.
