FLUX Pumps for the Cosmetic sector

Cosmetic

In the world of commodities, every detail is decisive when it comes to a well-groomed appearance. That is why cosmetic products in particular are available in every shade. At FLUX, we make sure that the usually costly media are always precisely filled, decanted, and metered.

In order to carefully transfer pastes, gels, Vaseline or high-visity cosmetics such as mascara at a constant volume and fill or decant them into a variety of containers, we rely on FLUX pumps, which do exactly what they should and reliably deliver what our customers expect: convincing filling results in consistent quality.

Application descriptions

Transfer of peeling cream for filling

Task:
A wide variety of facial and body peeling creams are to be transferred from drums and mixing containers to the filling process.

Solution:
Eccentric worm-drive pump F 560 GS
Three-phase motor
For the application designed accessories on request

Application description:
Prior to the use of the FLUX eccentric worm-drive pump, the various facial and body peeling creams were transferred by hand into the supply containers for the filling machines. This proved to be not only time intensive but also hygienically problematic. Now the FLUX 560 GS eccentric worm-drive pump in the gear unit version has taken over this transferring path.

The material is pumped out of drums and mixing containers that are placed alongside the filling systems. Low rotational speeds ensure very gentle pumping. Shearing is very low – as is the case for FLUX eccentric worm-drive pumps in general – and therefore there is no danger that the consistency of the peeling cream will change. The levels of the supply containers are monitored, i.e. the eccentric worm-drive pumps are switched on and off as needed. All in all, the filling process runs much more quickly – with significant time savings for the customer.

Transferring shampoo raw materials

Task:
A wide variety of shampoo raw materials are to be filled from 200-litre plastic drums into a mixing tub – this had previously been done manually. A simple and, most importantly, time-saving solution was sought.

Solution:
Eccentric worm-drive pump F 560 GS
Commutator motor F 458
For the application designed accessories on request

Application description:
A mid-size firm producing high-quality cosmetics (natural cosmetics) had been filling its raw materials manually, for example by dumping them out of drums. This proved to be cumbersome and above all time-intensive; therefore the FLUX F 560 GS FOOD eccentric worm-drive pump in the gear unit version is now used for these media.

This pump is ideally suited for this, because it can be flexibly and easily used. Removal from the 200-litre drums is problem free. The raw material for shampoo and also for creams can be quickly filled into the mixing tub, where the final product is produced. Then the finished product is metered into consumer bottles in a filling line and packaged.
