What Is The Reversible Drum Vac?

A safe, maintenance free way to recover:

  • Coolant
  • Hydraulic Oils
  • Liquid Spills
  • Slurry and Chips
  • Tramp Oil
  • Waste Water
Mini Drum Vac cleans small messes Drum cleans spills fast
The Model 6296 Deluxe Reversible Drum Vac includes a Model 6901 Spill Recovery Kit and drum dolly.

Why The Reversible Drum Vac?

EXAIR's compressed air operated Reversible Drum Vac System attaches quickly to any closed head 205 litre (44 gallon) drum. Its high powered vacuum fills the drum in less than two minutes.

With the simple turn of a knob, the same stainless steel pump quickly empties the drum. Coolant sumps can be easily refilled, floor spills vacuumed, or contaminated liquids transferred to filtration tanks in minutes.

The flow rate in and out of the drum can be controlled with the knob, making it ideal for dispensing liquids.

Drum Vac Two Way Action

Electrically operated "all purpose" vacuums aren't designed for use in industrial environments. As a result, motors wear out quickly and impellers clog. The Reversible Drum Vac does not use electricity and has no moving parts, assuring maintenance free operation. An automatic safety shutoff valve prevents spills or overfilling.

EXAIR's new Mini Reversible Drum Vac System delivers the same two-way action for small jobs. It comes complete with a 5 gallon drum and all the tools.
