EXAIR's Reversible Drum Vac, available from CompressAir Technologies , quickly converts an ordinary 60 litre or 205 litre closed head drum into a powerful liquid vacuum, capable of filling the 205 litre drum in less than two minutes.
With the turn of a knob, the same pump empties the drum. It is an ideal way to vacuum coolant, hydraulic oils, spills, sludge, tramp oil and wastewater, and then pump it back out for disposal, storage or reclamation.
The Drum Vac is compressed air powered and has no moving parts such as motors or impellers to clog, freeze up, or wear out. An automatic safety shut-off valve prevents overfilling the drum.
A built-in pressure/vacuum relief is integral to the muffling body for safe, quiet operation. There is no shock hazard since electricity is not required.
Constructed of stainless steel, the Drum Vac is suitable for use with most non-flammable liquids. The flow rate in and out of the drum can be controlled with the knob, making it ideal for dispensing liquids.
The unit comes complete with a three metre vacuum hose, a 90-degree vacuum hose quick release elbow, and an aluminium chip wand. Optional floor tools for spill recovery are also available.
