Last week, as Mother Nature was doing her typical dance between warm, almost Spring like days and then quickly reverting back to her Winter ways, the southwestern Ohio area was hit with a powerful storm. Luckily, my neighborhood area was spared the really strong winds and tornadic activity that nearby areas experienced. We did however receive a decent amount of rainfall.
Every Spring when the ground is still slightly frozen, the first good rain always leads to some water leakage into my basement. The water comes in through the gaps between the floor and the walls and even seeps up through some of the floor cracks. I have my theories as to why it only happens in the spring, but I’ll save that for another day. As the blog title says, I wish I had taken home a Reversible Drum Vac with me.
EXAIR manufactures the Reversible Drum Vac (RDV) System, which attaches quickly to to any 30, 55, or 110 gallon closed head drum. The Mini Reversible Drum Vac has the same great performance and comes complete with a 5 gallon drum. Coupled with the Spill Recovery Kit, using the RDV to vacuum up the rain water would have been a short and simple process. Using a mop, towels, fans and a dehumidifier took much longer and still did not get everything dry.
The compressed air operated Reversible Drum Vac System is a high powered vacuum that can fill a 55 gallon drum in less than 2 minutes, and with a simple turn of the a knob, the same stainless steel pump quickly empties the drum. With no electric motor to wear out, or impellers to clog, the RDV is designed to work in industrial environments. An automatic safety shutoff valve prevents the system from over-filling.
EXAIR also manufactures systems made for cleaning up solids, such as machining chips and other debris.
