Dreams of EXAIR’s Reversible Drum Vac

This time of year I think about family, friends, football, food and the memories being made with the Holiday Season. I have one constant memory. All the glorious food and the feeling of being so full from the never ending snacks, meals and desserts at our family’s gatherings. It seems my eating motto is “Hunger has nothing to do with it” I just love to eat. This has me dreaming of if only I could be an EXAIR’s Reversible Drum Vac (RDV). How grand would it be to fill up on all the goodies without overfilling. You see, the RDV has a built-in valve to prevent overfilling and spillage of the liquid being pumped into the drum. Then, with the turn of a knob the liquid is reversed and emptied back into your machine sump (after scooping out the chips and swarf) or kept in the drum for recycling, and the lid assembly is easily placed on to another drum.

Back to reality. EXAIR’s Reversible Drum Vac (RDV) operates on compressed air and fills a 55 gallon drum in less than 2 minutes. The RDVs come in 30, 55 or 110 gallon drums. Once full, just the 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 our drum can be controlled with the knob, making it ideal for dispensing liquids.

EXAIR’s 5 gallon RDV System delivers the same two-way action for small jobs. It comes complete with a 5 gallon drum and all the tools.

Electronically operated “all purpose” vacuums aren’t designed for use in industrial environments or run as long without suffering from burnt up motors or repairs. As a result, motors wear out quickly and impellers clog. The RDV does not use electricity and has no moving parts, assuring maintenance free operation. An automatic safety shutoff valve prevents spills or overfilling.

Well, I guess I will never be that RDV in my dreams but knowing that EXAIR has Great Industrial Housekeeping products including the RDV is a huge comfort. If you have questions or need help help sizing your RDV please contact on of our Applications Engineers.
