Exair Reversible Drum Vac System

EXAIR's compressed air operated Reversible Drum Vac System attaches quickly to any closed head 30, 55 or 110 gallon drum. Its compressed air powered vacuum fills a 55 gallon drum in less than two minutes. With the simple turn of a knob, the same stainless steel drum pump quickly empties the drum. Like all of EXAIR's industrial vacuum cleaners, the Reversible Drum Vac does not use electricity and has no moving parts, assuring maintenance free operation. An automatic safety shutoff valve prevents spills or overfilling. Drum Vac Systems include the two-way pump assembly (1/4 NPT), shutoff valve, 10' (3m) flexible vacuum hose (1-1/2"/38mm I.D.) with 90° quick release elbow connection and (1) aluminum wand (drum not included, except with 6196-5 Mini Reversible Drum Vac System).

How the EXAIR Reversible Drum Vac Works

How EXAIR's Reversible Drum Vac Works

The flex hose (1) is attached to the barbed connection (2) on the Reversible Drum Vac system. The knob (3) on the Reversible Drum Vac pump is set to the "fill" position. The air supply valve (4) is opened to permit compressed air at 80-100 PSIG (5.5 - 6.9 BAR) to flow through the Reversible Drum Vac pump which pulls liquid through the flex hose and into the drum. When all liquid is in the drum, the air supply is turned off. If liquid exceeds the drum capacity, the safety shut-off valve (5) will prevent overfilling. The liquid can then be pumped back out of the flex hose (1) by setting the knob (3) on the Reversible Drum Vac pump to the "empty" position and opening the air supply valve.

Warning: Do not use with any material that has a low flash point or with flammable liquids such as fuel oil, alcohol, mineral spirits, gasoline or kerosene.
