Replacing Gas Powered Sump Suckers

A dyeing machine builder was using gas-powered sump suckers to change fluids throughout their facility. They spewed fumes throughout the plant, creating environmental issues; constantly needing LP fuel tanks changed and at the most inconvenient times. Batteries would run low, requiring a jump-start or replacement. They purchased an air powered EXAIR Model 6196 Reversible Drum Vac to compare performance. The results were impressive. The Reversible Drum Vac was  faster, quieter, smaller, safer, and with no smelly exhaust. There was also a cost advantage. The cost of the Drum Vac was less than they spent on general maintenance and fuel for the gas-powered ones. Payback was within a few months and will continue to provide savings in the future as the Drum Vac has no moving parts and will operate indefinitely.
