Reversible Drum Vac™

Pump 205 litres in 90 seconds!
Two-way pumping action.

What Is The Reversible Drum Vac?

A safe, maintenance free way to recover:

  • Coolant
  • Hydraulic oils
  • Liquid spills
  • Sludge and chips
  • Tramp oil
  • Waste water

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.

EXAIR’s 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.

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.

How The Reversible Drum Vac Works

The flex hose is attached to the barbed connection on the Reversible Drum Vac system. The knob on the Reversible Drum Vac pump is set to the “fill” position. The compressed air supply valve is opened to permit compressed air at 80 to 100 PSIG (5.5 to 6.9 BAR) to flow through the Reversible Drum Vac pump which pulls liquid through the flex hose and into the drum. When all the liquid is in the drum, the air supply is turned off. If liquid exceeds the drum capacity, the safety shut off valve will prevent overfilling. The liquid can then be pumped back out of the flex hose by setting the knob on the Reversible Drum Vac pump to the “empty” position and opening the air supply valve.

Built To Last

The stainless steel pump has no motors or impellers to clog or wear out and there is no electricity or shock hazard! Safe operation is assured with a built-in pressure/vacuum relief and an automatic safety shutoff valve that prevents spills or overfilling.

Warning : Do not use with any material with a low flash point or with flammable liquids such as fuel oil, alcohol, mineral spirits, gasoline or kerosene.

With proper filtration of dirt, moisture and oil from the compressed air supply, EXAIR compressed air products will operate for years with no maintenance required. Use a 5 micron or smaller filter separator on the compressed air supply. To prevent problems associated with oil, use a 0.03 micron or smaller oil removal filter on the compressed air supply. Pressure regulators permit easy selection of the operating pressure, providing infinite control of flow, force and air consumption.
