Drum emptying systems (VISCOFLUX)


Drum emptying systems (VISCOFLUX) by FLUX-GERÄTE GmbH

For pumping highly viscous media from drums with lids

VISCOFLUX drum emptying systems were specially developed for emptying lidded drums with high-viscosity contents. The medium is continuously and particularly careful extracted with FLUX eccentric worm-drive pumps. All systems achieve an almost complete emptying of the drum with < 1 % residual amount (under 2 % for drums with inliners).

The unique VISCOFLUX drum emptying system is used by various industries for fast, cost-effective conveying of highly viscous, pasty and non-free flowing media. It guarantees virtually complete and gentle emptying from standard drums with lids.


  • Vaseline (including from drums with inliners)
  • Cosmetic products such as creams, mascara
  • Lanolin and wool wax
  • Structural adhesives
  • Resins
  • Peanut paste
  • Greases up to grease class 3 and coating compounds
  • PVC printing/insulation dye, liquid PVC

  • Paints and silicones
  • Sealing paste for sealing with hemp
  • Materials, which gasify or react with oxygen


  • Low initial purchase costs compared to stationary systems
  • High flexibility due to mobility of the system
  • Low disposal costs due to small residual quantity in the drum
  • Process safety even if the pumping process is interrupted during emptying due to hermetic sealing off the material
  • Fast cleaning thanks to dismantling with a few hand movements
  • User-friendly handling due to easy operation of the control unit and integrated transport device
  • Customised performance due to individually selectable three-phase or compressed-air motor in conjunction with a suitable eccentric worm-drive pump
