PCM IVA-LVA-GVA hopper progressive cavity pumps

The growing demand for more concentrated and sophisticated products often implies an increase in the viscosity of the products being transferred. If your product is viscous, pasty, sticky, greasy, thick, or concentrated, PCM provides an appropriate solution for each type of rheology through its range of force feeding progressing cavity pumps – IVA-LVA-GVA Series.

IVA/LVA/GVA pumps are fitted with a feeder hopper and a conveyor screw. The open-throat design allows the fluid to flow in without restriction while the screw feeds the materials into the rotor/stator. The IVA/LVA pumps are ideal for viscous and heterogeneous fluids pumping. The GVA pumps allow to transfer very viscous, sticky and heterogeneous products.

Benefits of IVA/LVA/GVA feeding pumps


  • Transfers high viscosity, non-homogeneous and pasty products
  • Small investment, low power consumption
  • Compact solution for simplified integration


  • Transfers very viscous products
  • Accomodates non-homogeneous products containing pasty and even sticky pieces
  • Improved circulation of the fluid thanks to the hopper’s shape
