If you’re trying to move liquids between containers—whether they’re lightweight, flammable, aggressive, or neutral liquids—you need a drum pump. These useful devices pump lightweight and aqueous liquids between containers to keep you and your work environment both clean and safe.
Depending on your needs, you can choose from one of any number of drum pumps. Read below to learn more about how PFC Equipment, Inc.’s Standard brand drum pumps can help you and which one you should choose.
Aggressive, Corrosive, or Neutral Liquids
If you’re transferring liquids like alkalis, acids, mineral oils, and neutral liquids, choose container pumps. These pumps come in a variety. of materials, including:
Many container pumps come with either air-driven or electric motors, and most have mechanical seals.
If you work with dangerous liquids, this is the drum pump for you. These explosion-proof pumps maximize your workplace safety as you transfer dangerous liquids. If you work frequently with combustible liquids or in an area where explosions and fires could occur, a hazard drum pump is a must.
All Standard-brand hazardous liquid pumps meet North American safety standards in both the United States and Canada.
Shear-Sensitive and Viscous Liquids
Both of these liquids demand extreme care during transference. To handle your shear-sensitive and viscous liquids as gently as possible, choose container pumps made specifically for them. As an added bonus, these pumps are particularly easy to disassemble for cleaning.
For thin-bodied liquids, choose laboratory drum pumps. As the name implies, these pumps are perfect for research work or in laboratory settings. These pumps have small diameters that enable you to empty the narrowest containers. They’re also incredibly versatile, allowing you to move small and large amounts of liquid.
You can also find more specialized drum pumps for more specialized liquids, including those that transfer:
- Diesel fuel
- Base and acid solutions
- Highly corrosive liquids
You might also use your drum pump for mixing solutions while pumping. Choose a mixing pump tube to mix and pump simultaneously. These pumps have small diameters, which make them particularly useful for narrow containers.
