What AODD Pumps Do We Recommend for Drum Pumping?
Drum kits are available for all ¼”, 3/8”, ½”, and 1” All-Flo pumps. However, we’ve narrowed it down to show you a couple of our top selling pumps that are used primarily for drum pumping:
A 3/8-inch, lightweight drum pump constructed with Conductive Nylon, Polypropylene, or PVDF in the fluid end and Glass Filled Polypropylene in the air end. Diaphragms are available in Geolast®, PTFE, or Santoprene®. The pump requires a ¼-inch air inlet connection. Maximum pressure is 120 psi (8.2 bar). The pump has a maximum flow rate of 9 gpm (34.0 lpm). Drum pump kits are available for this model that feature a 40-inch suction tube and bung adapter separately.
A ½-inch drum pump constructed with Conductive Nylon, Polypropylene, or PVDF in the fluid end and Glass Filled Polypropylene in the air end. Diaphragms are available in Geolast®, PTFE, Santoprene®, or Viton® / FKM. This pump requires a ½-inch air inlet connection. Maximum pressure 120 psi (8.2 bar). The pump has a maximum flow rate of 17gpm (64.6 lpm). Drum pump kits are available for this model that feature a 40-inch suction tube and bung adapter separately.
Why Choose All-Flo drum pumps
With considerably faster suction rates than traditional pumps, All-Flo’s 55-gallon drum pumps can emptya barrel of fluid in minutes. Our air-driven drum pumps are also relatively cheaper than motor-driven pumps from some of our competitors.
Choosing your drum pumps – materials of construction
All-Flo offers a range of air-operated drum pumps with different materials of construction – ensuring that there is a suitable pump for every application, regardless of the nature of fluid for transfer.
Note: Before choosing a pump for a particular application, you should be aware of its chemical compatibility with the fluid for transfer. Please consult our chemical database for specific chemical compatibility with our products.
