The VISCOFLUX mobile S drum emptying system was specifically designed for use in pharmaceutical, food and cosmetics industries. It is perfectly suited for ensuring efficiency and process safety while pumping high viscosity, paste-like, non-self-flowing media out of diverse drums – either with or without aseptic bags. Media can be transferred low-shear and continously. The residual amount remaining in the drum is up to less than 1 %. The mobile drum emptying system offers a high degree of flexibility and can also be operated in wet or damp production environments. The system's stainless steel process device bears the protection class IP 66.
