Kecol Pumping Systems Ltd is the leading UK manufacturer of air driven piston pumps and priming devices in polished stainless steel or painted construction, for transferring high viscosity non-flowable products from drums and containers as used in the cosmetic, food, pharmaceutical, chemical and general Industries.
Kecol air powered drum pumps and transfer systems are suitable for all standard size closed top or open top drums and can be adapted to suit open top containers with an
internal diameter up to 1200mm. All contact parts are manufactured from 316L stainless steel and clamp construction pumps are also available. Products in drums or similar sized vessels that normally need to be heated 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, with the Kecol follower plate system wiping the inside of the drum or vessel to minimise product waste.
Typical applications in the food industry include transferring tomato puree, concentrated fruit juice, honey, fruit pastes, biscuit creams, jams, butter, margarine, sweet mincemeat, sausage meat and meat pie fillings with cooked vegetables. Applications in the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries include transferring mascara, petroleum jelly, face creams, base creams, magnesium hydroxide, aluminium hydroxide, toothpaste, lip gloss waxes and suntan lotions. Applications in the chemical and general industries include the transfer of paints, resins, adhesives, polymers, latex, high viscosity grease, mastics and Inks – all pumped cold without pre-heating the products. As manufacturers, Kecol Pumping Systems can offer solutions to your particular product transfer problem, by offering a bespoke system designed to exceed your particular production requirements.
