The Dual Force Vac Drum Pump from Vortec is a two-way, air-powered drum pump designed to be a convenient and versatile solution for liquid material handling and spill cleanup. The vacuum installs on a 55-gallon drum in less than a minute, the company says, and can fill or discharge the drum in 2 min. The unit includes a vacuum hose and long-reach wand for out-of-the-box functionality. It can handle viscous liquids to 1,500 cPs, as well as chips, swarf and particulate, making it ideal for cleaning coolant sumps, sludge and wastewater from parts washers, solvents, hydraulic oil, tramp oil, liquid spills, liquid transfers and more. 

An automatic safety shutoff valve prevents overflows, while a relief valve limits internal drum pressure to 8 psig. Powered by compressed air with no moving parts this quiet-running drum pump requires virtually no maintenance, the company says. It is resistant to most non-volatile, non-flammable liquids, accommodating many industrial and commercial environments. An optional kit includes aluminum wand and squeegee spill pickup tool.
