Not all liquid vacuums are the same. We have seen motor burnouts, loud noises, single directional flow, and potential electrical hazards. EXAIR manufactures a liquid pump to remove all those issues; the Reversible Drum Vac System. It does not have any moving parts to wear; a two-way action to fill or expel liquid from standard drums; and is quiet. They only use compressed air to generate a powerful vacuum to lift liquid; and with a simple twist of the knob, it will push the liquid out. And by using compressed air, no electricity is needed, making it safe. They work great for fluid transfers or liquid spills, and they can fill a 55-gallon (208L) drum in 90 seconds. How can this product be useful for you? If you work with liquids like coolant, waste water or hydraulic oils, the Reversible Drum Vac System is a simple reliable product to have at your facility. In this blog, I will go over the specifications and packages that EXAIR offers.
The Reversible Drum Vac has stainless steel construction for corrosion resistance. It comes with a built-in safety relief valve to avoid over pressurizing and an internal float to stop any over-filling of the drum. The air consumption is minimal; 19 SCFM (538 SLPM) at 80 PSIG (5.5 Bar), and has a low noise level of only 86 dBA. Systems are available in 5, 30, 55 and 110 gallon capacities (19L, 114L, 208L, and 418L respectively) in different packages.
The 5-gallon size is our Mini Reversible Drum Vac System. They are designed for tight spaces, quick clean-ups, and small sumps. We offer two types of systems; the Standard and the Deluxe. The Standard System, model 6196-5, will come with a 5-gallon drum, two-way pump assembly, shutoff valve, 10′ (3m) vacuum hose, a 90° quick release elbow, an aluminum chip wand, ABS spill recovery kit, two extension wands, a crevice tool, and a skimmer tool. The Deluxe System, model 6296-5, will include every item in the model 6195-5 plus a 5-gallon drum dolly.
For the larger capacities, the Standard system will include the two-way pump assembly, shutoff valve, 10′ (3m) vacuum hose, a 90° quick release elbow, a standpipe, and an aluminum chip wand. The standpipe is cut to length for the properly-sized drum (the drum is not included in this option). The standpipe extends inside the drum to remove as much liquid as possible when emptying the drum.
The Deluxe system will include all of the items shown above in the Standard system and adds a drum dolly, ABS spill recovery kit, (2) extension wands, crevice tool, skimmer tool and a magnetic tool holder.
The Premium system will include all of the items in the Standard System and adds the drum with lock ring and lid, upgraded heavy duty aluminum tools, ABS spill recovery kit, (2) crevice tools, skimmer tool, a magnetic tool holder and a 20′ (6m) compressed air hose.
