MINIFLUX, the pump for horizontal media transfer out of IBCs – now also for use in explosion hazard areas (Zone 1).
When accessing IBCs from above is impossible or very difficult, such as when containers are stacked or ceilings are low, the MINIFLUX enables pumping directly at the floor-level outlet. It is suitable for media with a viscosity of up to 1 000 mPas. In comparison to gravity draining via the IBC outlet tap the MINIFLUX enables a considerably higher delivery rate and delivery head. Depending on the media and motor, either up to 240 l/min can be transferred or a delivery head of up to 13 mwc can be achieved. This means that the media can be rapidly filled into the container or transported to an elevated container.
The mechanical seal design separates the media area from the pump drive. This means the shaft only comes into contact with the product in the rotor area. The pump is only 136 mm long, weighs just 1.2 kg, is easy to handle and requires minimal space. It can be easily connected to the IBC with a union nut. Ideally the drive of the MINIFLUX is provided by a commutator motor or compressed-air motor.
In 1950 the worldwide’s first electrical drum pump was named FLUX. Meanwhile the undisputed pioneer on the field of drum pump technology also has outstanding expertise and experience in many other areas of pump technology. The comprehensive product portfolio ranges now from various pump types with motors, flow meters and accessories to subsystems for the plant engineering and special system solutions like the drum emptying systems. The internationally acting family company with its 7 subsidiaries and numerous sales partners supplies its products to more than 100 countries worldwide.
