Solutions for pumping viscous materials

01 June 2020

Kecol Pumping Systems, the UK leader in the design and manufacture of piston pumps and pumping systems, has introduced several new solutions. 

Articulated systems from Kecol Pumping Systems are designed to enable the emptying of four drums mounted on a pallet without needing to remove them from the pallet, negating any potential manual handling issues. This new system is designed to complement other Kecol products such as its Megaprime and Maxiprime twin cylinder pressure priming systems, which are used to empty single vessels from 200l drums right up to 1,200l IBCs, and which can also be adapted for square vessels. 

Kecol has also recently added a batch weighing system to its range of viscous pumping equipment. The system allows an operator to enter the required weight of a batch of material, press the start, and the pump will automatically stop when the target weight is reached. Over 20 pre-set weights can be stored within the controller ready to be recalled at the push of a button.

The batch weighing system can be linked to any Kecol pump or priming system which are designed to handle viscous materials. The system can also be used with other air operated pumps such as diaphragm pumps.

The system is said to be suitable for weights up to 200kgs with bench-mounted or floor-mounted weighing platforms.

The above equipment has been supplied to a UK-based food manufacturer for use with tomato paste. The system was linked to a Syspal euro bin weighing system with the weighing controller controlling the Kecol pump. This has allowed the operator to select up to 200kg batches in 25kg steps and accurately fill the euro bin with the selected weight of paste.
