ViscoTec Pumpen- u. Dosiertechnik manufactures systems required for conveying, dosing, applying, filling and emptying medium to high-viscosity fluids. Among its innovations are its emptying and filling systems that optimise production lines in the cosmetics industry.

The beauty classic mascara is produced in quantities and made available in barrels for packaging. Getting the mascara paste into small applicators that millions of women worldwide use is where Viscotec comes in.

The company says it offers a simple solution especially suited for masses with high viscosities (up to 7.5 million mPas). The mascara is removed from barrels with a barrel-emptying system based on the endless piston principle and fed directly to the filling machine via a hose. The barrel-emptying pump is controlled by a two-point pressure control at the end of the hose.

Next is the filling: Viscotec’s filling systems are based on a modular series. The dispenser for this application is put together and adapted to requirements in terms of hygienic design, documentation, elastomer resistance, implementation and dosing volume. These configuration options allow, for example, a variant to be easily disassembled, manually cleaned and autoclaved. Alternatively, the dispenser can also be connected to a CIP/SIP system and be automatically cleaned and sterilised. The dosing principle enables precise filling even with temperature fluctuations during production.

At Formnext, Viscotec will be in Hall 3.0, Booth H54.
