How The 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.

Reversible Drum Vac

Pump 55 gallons in 90 seconds!
Two-way pumping action!
A safe, maintenance free way to recover 
  • Coolant
  • Sludge and chips
  • Hydraulic oils
  • Tramp oil
  • Liquid spills
  • Waste water
EXAIR's compressed air operated Reversible Drum Vac System attaches quickly to any closed head 30, 55 or 110 gallon drum. It is high powered vacuum fills a 55 gallon 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.
EXAIR’s new Mini Reversible Drum Vac System delivers the same two-way action for small jobs. It comes complete with a 5 gallon drum and all the tools.
Electrically operated “all purpose” vacuums aren't designed for use in industrial environments. As a result, motors wear out quickly and impellers clog. 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.
