Drum Vac Video

EXAIR's compressed air operated Reversible Drum Vac™ System attaches quickly to any closed head 5, 30, 55 or 110 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.
