No Mains Power is No Problem for Rechargeable Drum Pump Motor


How do you transfer liquids from drums and barrels safely and cleanly when you have no electrical or air supply available to drive the pump motor and manual, hand-operated pumps are not an option?

No Mains Power is No Problem for Rechargeable Drum Pump Motor

Michael Smith Engineers

A Lithium Ion Cordless Rechargeable Drum Pump Motor developed by drum pump specialists Finish Thompson (FTI) and available through Michael Smith Engineers . The S6 12-Volt rechargeable 2-speed drum pump motor can be used with any of the Finish Thompson EF polypropylene, pure polypropylene/PVDF or stainless steel tube sets. The result is an extremely versatile and portable option for remote or difficult-to-access

drum emptying applications.

The cordless design makes it easy to transfer fluids virtually anywhere, with maximum fade-free performance, equivalent to a corded AC powered motor. The latest Lithium ion batteries have a much higher energy density compared to nickel cadmium (NiCd) or nickel metal hydride (NiMH) batteries so the pumps can operate effectively for up to 50 minutes between charges. Also, Lithium ion batteries have no ‘memory’ effect which means they can be recharged at any state of their discharge.

The S6 rechargeable drum pump motor has a solid-state electronic control circuit that monitors all aspects of the motor and battery pack to ensure reliable operation and long-life, while dual cooling fans help to improve the performance and life of the battery pack. Multiple charging options include 115 or 230 volt AC and for mobile applications an automobile or commercial vehicle 12 volt port option will suffice. For permanent charging locations, a moulded wall hanger is available

which stores the charger unit internally.

On the low speed setting, the pump / motor will run for approximately 50 minutes between charges and the high speed setting, it will run for around 20 minutes.

The S6 Rechargeable Drum Pump Motor will be an ideal option for transferring fluids from drums, barrels and carboys where a power supply is not available, is too distant from the point of pumping, or where fluids need transferring in remote, isolated locations.
