With up to 99% evacuation rate, they are designed to increase efficiency with faster change-out of containers and provide a superior alternative to manual scooping for improved food and employee safety. Common applications include the transfer of tomato paste, peanut butter, jams and jellies, icing and frosting, caramels, corn syrups, toothpaste, and more.
How it works?
Once the drum is placed below the drum unloader, the ram plate and pump is lowered into the drum, just above the product. Then the seal is inflated to hermetically seal the drum.
When the pumping starts, the product is moved out of the drum and the plate with the inflatable seal travels down, scraping the products from the sides of the drum.
After the drum is emptied, the plate and pump can be lifted out by simply switching a button.
