Exair’s stainless steel Reversible Drum Vac quickly converts an ordinary 30-gal. closed head drum into a powerful liquid vacuum capable of filling the drum in one minute. With the turn of a knob, the same pump empties the drum. This is a good way to vacuum coolant, hydraulic oils, spills, sludge, tramp oil and waste water, then pump it back out for disposal, storage or reclamation. This two-way drum pump is powered by compressed air and has no moving parts to clog, freeze up or wear out. The knob also can be used to control the flow rate into and out of the drum. Air consumption is only 19 scfm at 80 psig. The unit comes with a 3-m (10-ft) vacuum hose, a 90-degree vacuum hose quick release elbow and an aluminum chip wand.
