Container and Barrel Emptying Systems


The ViscoMT-D Can Emptying System, or Barrel Emptying System,  provides an optimal solution for the clean and effective emptying of small containers and cans using a conveying pump and adapted follower plate.

Self-priming action ensures that the follower plate exerts no pressure on the product, but practically draws itself down towards the bottom of the container. This pressureless method guarantees that no medium is pressed past rim of the follower plate.

Main Features of ViscoMT-D:

  • Container sizes from approx. 500ml to 5 l
  • Viscosities of approx. 20.000 to 1.000.000 mPas
  • Maximum emptying capacity: 130 ml/min.
  • Excellent emptying results: <1% residue
ViscoMT-XS, ViscoMT-L & ViscoMT-XL








The ViscoMT-XS, ViscoMT-L  and ViscoMT-XL barrel-emptying unit offer a modern solution for the emptying of containers.

Material can be emptied directly  from the original container, for example: silicones, adhesives, resins, grease, colour pastes etc.


Main Features of ViscoMT-XS, ViscoMT-L & ViscoMT-XL:

  • container sizes from approx. 5 l to 50 l
  • viscosities from approx. 80,000 to 2,000,000 mPas
  • very low shear stress of material
  • very low pressure load on material (max. 18 bar)
  • emptying of material with filler content
  • no backflow in the emptying pump
  • excellent emptying results (less than 1% residue)
