Actively filtering lubricants from storage drums can prevent contamination related problems. Trico’s Drum Pump Filtration System can prevent contamination or remove it when used in daily
operations, including filtering oil directly from the storage drum to fill totes and transfer containers.
The Drum Pump Filtration System provides a dispensing nozzle for continuous flow and metering of lubricants, and a protective rubber nozzle cap to prevent contaminates from entering the nozzle when not in use. This system is capable of delivering a flow up to 6.8 gpm and is rated for use with lubricants up to a viscosity of 7,000 SUS, depending on motor selection. The Drum Pump Filtration System comes standard with a 10 micron absolute Beta>200 spin-on filter element and a sealing bung adapter. Differential pressure gauges help specify the filter element condition and the need for replacement.
The universal design of the Drum Pump Filtration System integrates a quick change hand wheel design, allowing the motor to be transferred from one Drum Pump Filtration System to another without buying additional motors or removing the entire apparatus. This follows industries best handling practices by avoiding cross contamination of different lubricant types, reduces further particle contamination and eliminates messy lubricant spills.
A variety of filter elements are available to meet recommended manufacturer cleanliness levels.
