Pump Cosmetics To Depositing And Filling Heads

A global contract personal care manufacturer with plants based in the UK are using the Flotronic 'One Nut' sanitary style air operated double diaphragm pump, to pump their full range of  personal hygiene products to filling Depositors. Successfully pumping to various depositors on site, supplying either a manual semi-automatic depositor or a fully  automatic depositor Head
