3 Reasons to Purchase an Electric Drum Pump

If you need to transfer liquids safely from container to container, an electric drum pump could be the ideal solution. These pumps are perfect for emptying totes, barrels, and small containers. They provide a user-friendly, reliable method to complete fluid transfers safely and efficiently.

Versatility, durability, and ease of use make an electric drum pump the go-to option for a wide range of applications. These pumps are often utilized in settings such as steel processing, electroplating, odor control, fish hatcheries, and water treatment plants, and aquariums, to name a few. Potential applications number in the thousands.

Some of these applications could be served by a hand pump. However, many pump owners choose an electric drum pump over manual pumps due to the superiority of electric drum pump performance. Hand pumps are typically slower, less efficient, and less durable. In some instances, such as harsh chemical applications, they may also be less safe.

Is an electric drum pump right for your application? Here are three reasons you might want to consider purchasing an electric drum pump.

1. To Increase Efficiency

What makes an electric drum pump so efficient? First, it’s easy to use. Operation of these pumps does not require extensive training, and their simple design is user friendly. Second, they are portable. This minimizes the pump’s footprint, to conserve space. It also allows pump users to empty or fill containers throughout a facility, by easily transporting the pump wherever it is needed. Third, an electric drum pump can transfer high volumes of fluids quickly and effectively.

Because efficient operations improve productivity, use of an electric drum pump helps to boost your bottom line. Electric drum pump users can generate more volume each day to accomplish more work, fulfill more orders, or serve more customers. The increased efficiency can help a business expand its reach and achieve greater growth potential.

2. To Reduce Costs

An electric drum pump is an affordable option for safe, effective liquid transfers. A durable, reliable electric drum pump provides a solid investment that doesn’t break the pump owner’s budget. Plus, the increase in efficiency over hand pumps improves production. This improvement reduces downtime, which reduces overall cost of operations.

An electric drum pump also enhances safety, which can reduce costs related to accidents and insurance coverage. Two qualities of an electric drum pump provide this enhanced safety, as outlined below.

3. To Improve Safety

For facility managers who are seeking to enhance the safety parameters of their operations, an electric drum pump is a wise investment. Electric drum pump models are often safer than hand pumps. Why? Manual chemical transfers are high-risk transactions; however, the use of an electric drum pump keeps harsh chemicals safely contained. Employees can complete transfers with far less personal and environmental risk.

Additionally, pump users whose operations involve heavy-duty chemicals can choose an electric drum pump that is designed and made with materials specifically selected to handle these types of chemicals. Built to withstand harsh chemicals, an electric drum pump effectively enhances the safety of these applications.
