Looking back at my plastic injection molding days we would occasionally experience a hydraulic hose failing. Anyone who has witnessed this knows it can create quite a mess. If only I knew about EXAIR and their Reversible Drum Vac™ (RDV) back then as it would have made the cleanup process so much easier.
The RDV is a purpose built, compressed air driven, high powered vacuum used to empty and fill coolant sumps and clean up spills. It can fill a 55 gallon drum in less than 2 minutes and can attach to closed head 30, 55 or 110 gallon drum. Once the drum is full this same stainless steel pump can be emptied by a simple turn of of a knob. The RDV does not use electric and has no moving parts, assuring maintenance free operation. An automatic safety shutoff valve prevents spills or overfilling.
The RDV is, hands-down, a workhorse of a product. It has been relied upon for 30+ years to empty and fill coolant sumps on metal working machines. They function time and time again in machine shop environments with very little to zero maintenance required. If they should diminish in performance, they can be returned back to new condition in the field – most of the time. You can rely on these rugged and effective vacuums for decades.
EXAIR has a Mini (5 gallon) RDV System that delivers the same two-way action for small jobs. It comes complete with a 5 gallon drum and all the tools.
