Air Pressure Pump for Drum Can (for delivery of oil stored in drum cans)
Model APD-25N EX is suitable for regular oil, cutting oil and engine oil's transfer. This highly durable, efficient pump is outstandingly easy to use. It is also equipped with an elastic PVC hose and a handy nozzle.
If you are willing to transfer kerosene, gasoline or diesel oil, please choose APD-20GN EX model.
For transferring solvents, please choose APD-20ASN EX model.
Easy to use ! Explosion proof!
The pump is used for emptying drum cans. It is the most suitable model for high viscosity oil (3000 cP max recommended). The pump does not use electricity (all you need is a source of compressed air). It is an explosion proof model and can be safely used in hazardous areas.
Air (0.1~1 MPa) is let in
Through the regulator, the compression is set to 0.05
The compressed air is being let into the tank
The pressure inside the tank rises, pushing the surface of the fluid
The pushed fluid enters the suction pipe
The fluid enters the delivery hose and leaves the system through a gun nozzle
What is an air pressure pump?
By letting compressed air into a container like a drum can, the inner pressure of the container is being changed. This way the fluid can be dispensed (APD pumps), collected (APDQ pumps), or both dispensed and collected (APDX pumps). Because the liquid does not have contact with any other objects during dispensing, basically no harm can be done, therefore these pumps are suitable for dispensing contaminated fluids and high viscosity (up to 5000 cP, depending on the model) fluids. Also, the air operated pump guarantees safety during dispensation or collection in hazardous areas (models AS, G, SUS are equipped with a ground wire). It is impossible, however, to use to use a gun nozzle or a flow meter, when transferring contaminated fluids.
