    NETZSCH Barrel Emptying Pumps


    NEMO® Barrel Emptying Pumps suction themselves automatically to the bottom of the barrel or container to achieve almost residue-free emptying in the chemical, pharmaceutical and foods industries. The heart of the Barrel Emptying System is a volumetrically conveying NEMO® Progressing Cavity Pump. When the NEMO® Pump is started, a vacuum is created under the follower plate. This then simultaneously puts slight pressure on the substance in order to guarantee constant suction in the pump.

    Features of NEMO® Barrel Emptying Pumps:

    • very gentle conveyance
    • nearly residual-free emptying
    • conveyance also of compacted products
    • conveyance of solids

    NEMO® Barrel Emptying Pumps offer you:

    • conveyance volume in proportion to rotation speed
    • constant low-pulsation conveyance
    • high efficiency
    • low life cycle costs combined with easy serviceability

    Everything from a single supplier!
