A follower plate pumps high viscosity materials from barrels. This system is used for food manufacturing, resin dispensing and gluing. The plate closes tight to the wall of the barrel and is lowered slowly. The material rises through a hole in the center of the plate into the intake socket and is then pumped through the pump.
How to Install a Follower Pump
As with most hand-operated pumps, a follower pump must be installed correctly. To do this, first flush out the grease in the stuffing box to remove any clogs or buildup. Then, run the gland nuts finger tight and secure them to the follower plate.
Note: Make sure the banjo bolt and brass fitting threads are clean. The pump will not hold its tightening torque very long if the threads are damaged or burrs appear on them. In addition, be sure to reinstall the fuel lines and electrical connectors before tightening the bolts.
In accordance with this, the follower plate 14 with its superstructures lowers with increasing emptying of the barrel 26 into this, as in 1b shown. The lowered follower plate and its structure – as usual in such follower pumps – on vertically extending guides 16a, b led, attached to a guide frame 15 are arranged, in which the barrel 26 must be set exactly.
Installing a Follower Plate
A Follower Plate is a must have for any gun enthusiast. These specialized components will allow you to vacuum extract materials from 2.5L tins of liquid gold into empty cartridges or barrel guns, and the best part is that they are super easy to install. The most complicated part is making sure that your pump can handle the task! This will require a bit of trial and error, but a little work can yield big dividends. Whether you’re looking to upgrade a standard duty, manual or industrial pump or you’re simply in the market for a new tin of magic, our team of experts can recommend the most suitable Follower Plate for your needs.
Installing a Follower Pump in a Drum
Drum follower pumps are used to dispense medium to high viscosity fluids that can be difficult to pump from a drum. They can be used for food, resin dispensing, gluing and various other applications.
ABNOX drum pumps are available in modular design and can be customized to the specific viscosity of the material being pumped. They include a FLUX eccentric worm-drive pump with motor, a centring plate fixed above it on the drum’s edge and a flexible process seal to ensure almost zero material remains on the drum wall after media transfer.
A rubber flange minimises waste by wiping the inner drum wall. This drum emptying system is fast and easy to install, with few components and a low installation height. It is also gentle on the media, which prevents structural change. It is also simple to extend, and offers a variety of benefits, including custom output, quick cleaning, and process reliability. These benefits make this solution a cost-effective, resource-saving, and simple way to use your drums for many applications. For more information, contact us today.

Installing a Follower Pump in a Container
Follower pumps can be used to pump fluids directly from barrels or containers. They are a useful device for food manufacturing, resin dispensing, gluing and more. The most popular use is to pump highly viscous materials, such as grease. For this purpose, a plate is placed on the surface of the material in the barrel, which closes tight to the wall of the vessel. Then the plate is slowly lowered, and the material rises through the hole in the center of the plate into the intake socket of the pump. The result is a pumping action that is smooth and precise, and the material remains at its desired level.
To aid in the task, a follower plate that is designed to be used with a RAASM grease pump has a rubber outer edge that ‘wipes’ the interior of the container and maximizes the amount of grease available for collection by the pump. The plate also features a handle to aid in the removal and re-installation of the follower plate from the pail. It’s a good idea to buy a follower plate with a nitrile rubber seal for the best performance and long life.
