Drum Pumps are a portable pump option, ideal for intermittent operation. These pumps are ultramodern, incorporating design features to keep operation simple, reliable and effective. They are suitable for transferring thin to low viscous, neutral or corrosive liquids.

Features of the Techniflo Drum Pump range:

  • metallic and non-metallic versions
  • flows up to 200 L/min
  • electric, pneumatic and hand operated models
  • lightweight and safe
  • available in 240 V


Drum pumps are suitable for a wide range of applications. They operate via the following working principle:

The motor, whether it be electric, air or hand-operated, sits on top of the immersion tube, on the outside of the container (IBC / drum). The pump tube (which is available in common drum sizes) fits through, and is often sealed to, an opening on the top of the container. The ‘pump’ is located within the lower end of the tube, driven from the motors on the other end of the tube.

The pumped liquid flows between the tube to the discharge port at the motor end of the immersion tube.


Techniflo Drum Pumps can handle a wide variety of dangerous, corrosive and flammable liquids, including but not limited to:

  • hydrochloric acid
  • sofa lye
  • formic acid
  • sal ammoniac
  • photo developer
  • lime potash
  • fixing baths
  • acetic acid
  • phosphoric acid
  • fruit acids
  • nitric acid
  • hydrofluoric acid
  • bleaching solution
  • water
  • lactic acid
  • boric acid
  • chromic acid
  • alcohols
  • soap solutions


What accessories come with drum pumps?

A full range of accessories such as trigger nozzles, hose, flow metres and grounding straps are available from Global Pumps.

Can I use the same pump to decant from 200 L drums and IBCs?

Yes, you can. Global Pumps would supply a 1200 mm long spear, so you can fully decant the IBC but when you use the pump on the 200L drums, it would just be 200 mm longer.

Do the drum pumps come with a discharge hose?

Yes - as an accessory. Discharge hose is an extra accessory, which our team believe make it easier to transfer into other containers. Standard sets come with 2 metre hose and a nozzle.

What materials are the drum pumps available in?

The most common and stocked materials and polypropylene, PVDF, 316 stainless steel and aluminium.


The Techniflo Drum Pump range are a modular design; every motor can be combined with every pump tube. The delivery rate can be regulated in accordance with your application requirements.

If pumping flammable liquids in explosive surroundings, explosion-proof drum pumps are available. The motor and pump are certified with ATEX approval for use with flammable liquids.
