Flotronic has introduced a new drum / barrel unloading system, combining the unique 'ONE NUT' pump with their drum/barrel unloading skid. The new system enables you to pump highly viscous materials out of your drum / barrel at significantly increased flow rates. This system is built around our 'ONE-NUT' sanitary style pump which is based on our 3A and EHEDG design. This style of pump has already proven itself in the hygienic / sanitary industries and is a match for any environment or process where avoidance of product contamination is paramount. The system can be Cleaned in Place using the pump itself or an external CIP rig or, because of the 'ONE NUT'design of the pump, it can be easily stripped down for cleaning.
"Using an inflatable seal, the system ensures minimal wastage is achieved and the minimum of product remains in the drum / barrel." Says Leighton Jones, Sales Director, Flotronic Pumps. "As the seal inflates it creates an excellent seal while moving down the drum / barrel and at the end of the process it deflates for easy removal. There is less hold up compared to other systems, which means you can empty challenging viscous fluids from full size drums / barrels in a matter of minutes, improving productivity with increased profit potential."
This hygienic hands-free control of the unloading is efficient and reliable using proven technology, with application across the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries. Flotronic provide bespoke systems to customer requirements and can cater for any fibre, metal or plastic 200 litre/55 gallon drum or similar. The drum / barrel unloading skid can be fully mobile or fixed in place, with the system designed to suit your needs, including roller systems if required.
Significant accreditations awarded to two Flotronic pumps
Flotronic Pumps' recently developed 'E' Series Pump has been accredited by the European Hygienic Engineering & Design Group (EHEDG) - a consortium of equipment manufacturers, food industries, research institutes and public health authorities promoting hygiene during the processing and packing of food products.
Engineered for the food, beverage, dairy and pharmaceutical industries and tested to exacting performance standards by EHEDG, Flotronic's 'E' series pump features polished wetted surfaces to 0.8μm Ra or better and an electro-polished overall finish, making this pump the ideal choice for any environment or process where avoidance of product contamination is paramount.
Flotronic's ' H' Series 3-A Pump has also been designed for conditions demanding rigorous hygiene standards. The 'H' Series has been accredited by 3-A Sanitary Standards Inc, the US-based independent not-for-profit corporation dedicated to advancing hygienic equipment design for the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries. 3-A SSI accreditation confirms that 'H' series parts and raw materials are of the highest quality with their provenance duly certified.
Flotronic Pumps Limited
Flotronic Pumps Limited has been manufacturing air-operated double-diaphragm pumps since 1981.
Every pump we make benefits from our unique 'ONE-NUT' design, which allows rapid pump disassembly, cleaning and maintenance 'in place'.
Our pump range is comprehensive. From acids to adhesives, paints to petrochemicals and hand cream to hazardous materials, there's a Flotronic pump to suit your application requirements.
A unique air-operated, double-diaphragm pump machined from one solid block of PTFE, the Minichem is a cost-effective way of handling low-flow rate aggressive chemicals.
The Minichem is able to transfer aggressive chemicals and other hazardous materials at low 50 litre and 100 litre flow rates through ½" and 1" connections respectively. A key benefit of the 'ONE-BLOCK' design is that it avoids the need for separate manifolds. This means no manifold seals and therefore no potential leak paths.
With environmental protection in mind, Diaphragm Rupture Protection and Alarm Systems are available.
