Ezi-action® Drumpumps are fully serviceable. This differentiates them from any other hand drum pump on the world market. Servicing may never be required.

Ezi-action® Drumpump seals are made from LDPE plastic which has excellent chemical resistance and are well proven.

The addition of an OR -116 Brown Viton O ring above the LDPE seals on the plunger shaft can be beneficial when the Ezi-action® Drumpump is being used to pump large volumes.

It can also be useful when there is an increase in back pressure because the pump is being used to pump fluids against gravity or when the fluids are very viscous.

When very strong acids are being dispensed ( e.g. 85% nitric acid) the addition of a Viton O ring can improve the longevity and performance of Ezi-action® Drumpumps.

We now offer a Viton Seal Pack.
This includes a OR-116 Brown Viton O ring and LDPE seals.

Yes. If a long hose is fitted and siphoning is not desired this can be easily managed.

To break the siphon air needs to enter the hose, the hose needs to be crimped and/or the hose needs to be stored higher than the contents of the drum.

When the Ezi-action® Drumpump is not in use removal of the long hose or removal of the Ezi-action® Drumump from the drum will prevent unintentional siphoning.

For extra safety install an Ezi-action® Non-Siphon Check Valve in your hose.  This will prevent accidental siphoning as it permits air to enter the hose.
