Pail & Drum Ram Emptying Systems

Fluid Research® Pail & Drum Ram Emptying Systems provide accurate dispensing from barrels, drums and pails in standard and custom sizes of highly viscous and abrasive materials. Our systems utilize progressing cavity pump technology, providing the most efficient dispense possible, with continuous flow, no pulsation, and low shear.

The Pail RAM also increases operating efficiency, saving you time and money. Benefits include:

  • Pump down motion requires minimal downward pressure on the pumped material, resulting in clean and complete container emptying
  • Systems are easily adapted to cartridge filling, robotic dispensing, form in place gaskets or your unique process
  • Volumetric pumping at low discharge pressure creates almost no shear to fluid
  • Positioning guides allow efficient drum or pail changes
  • Low life cycle costs combined with easy serviceability
