There are many efficient options, other than tipping, for getting liquid out of a drum. Electric drum pumps, also known as stub pumps, affix to openings atop drums, barrels, or storage tanks. While there are many different types, the principle is simple: an electric pump motor draws fluid up through a tube and ejects it through an outlet. Electric drum pumps are used for sanitary applications, chemical transfer, diesel exhaust fluid transfer, oil transfer, and flammable liquid transfer. Electric drum pumps are used in a variety of applications, including agricultural, food and beverage, and pharmaceutical manufacturing. Items vary by voltage, horsepower, motor type, application, gpm, psi, agency compliance, and other important considerations.
