Oil Drum Pumps

There are 4 main types of oil drum pump available to buy from Easy Rack.  Under most circumstances, the best option is the electric pump.  This uses an internal motor to draw up the liquid, and operates at the touch of a button. Oil Drum Pumps


Having the correct model of oil drum pump for your needs available at a moments notice will allow your staff to enjoy a much easier way of getting lubricating oil or other liquids out of a standard drum and into a more manageable container for use elsewhere.  A typical barrel will contain as much as 55 gallons of oil, and this is much more than a regular job requires.  For this reason, it is important to be able to get a much smaller amount on demand.  By having a decent pump, you can reduce wastage from the barrel, and make the best use of expensive resources throughout your operation to maximize your profits.


There are plenty of different oil drum pumps available on the market today, and these serve a wide range of different purposes.  Pumps come in a number of different forms and these all serve slightly purposes, however there are a number of things to consider for all pumps.


Whether you choose an electric or manual pump, take care to ensure that the material that it is made of is suitable for the liquid that is being used. The most important thing to remember is that a different pump should be used for every single drum.  While it may seem economical to cut back on the number of expensive pumps that you buy, this is a false economy, as even with the best will in the world, there will be occasions where a member of staff does not properly clean out the oil drum pump after use, and then use it for another chemical.  This can contaminate the liquid with oil or vice versa, and in turn this can cause extensive and expensive damage in machinery when the oil is used as a lubricant.


 It is quick and simple to use, provides an instant supply of liquid, and has a nice smooth, even flow, which means less spillage and fewer accidents.


One of the main concerns that needs to be addressed when selecting the right manual hand drum pump for your requirements is to consider the kind of liquid that you are using. A rotary pump is another type of oil drum pump that provides a nice even flow, although it must be primed automatically using a crank.  This type of pump is best suited to extremely viscous liquids, and is therefore popular as a source of lubricating oil.


Traditional piston and lever pumps are two versions of the same basic design.  The piston pump is designed for lighter liquids, while the addition of a lever means that the liquid can be drawn up more effectively, and thereby it is ideal for a wider range of applications.  Both of these simple pumps have the benefit of being extremely reliable, and with little to go wrong with them, it is feasible to expect them to last for many years of effective service.


Whether you choose an electric or manual pump, take care to ensure that the material that it is made of is suitable for the liquid that is being used.  Never use a polypropylene based pump to transfer solvents, as these can actually dissolve the pump in use, and this can lead to injury as well as the general damage that any spillage creates.
