With more than 25 years’ experience in pumping viscous materials, Kecol is the first choice of many of global pharmaceutical, cosmetic and food manufacturers. The company manufactures pneumatic, positive displacement piston pumps and priming systems in polished stainless steel, for transferring high viscosity non-flowable products from drums and containers as used in the cosmetic, food, pharmaceutical, chemical and general industries.
Products in drums or similar sized vessels that normally need to be heated in order to reduce the viscosity – can be transferred cold. Products with a viscosity up to 10,000 Poise can be transferred (cold) using the Kecol Maxiprime system, which can also used to transfer pastes and products that stick to the inside of an open top drum, wiping the inside of the drum or vessel, minimising product waste.
