A liquid vacuum cleaner with a 2-way pumping system: Pumps 205 liters in 90 seconds!

Why The Reversible Drum Vac?

EXAIR’s compressed air operated Reversible Drum Vac System attaches quickly to any closed head 30 or 55 gallon (45 imperial gallon/205 liter) 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. The Mini Reversible Drum Vac System delivers the same two-way action specifically 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. (Warning: Do not use with any material with a low flash point or with flammable liquids such as fuel oil, alcohol, gasoline or kerosene.)

The Reversible Drum Vac is a safe, maintenance free way to recover:

  • Coolant

  • Hydraulic Oils

  • Liquid Spills
  • Slurry and Chips
  • Tramp Oil
  • Waste Water
