Wide Variety of Drum Faucets

How do you choose the right drum faucet

Things to consider when choosing a drum faucet

  • Working with thin, viscous liquids? Choose a 3/4” drum faucet. They won’t drip, and you can control the flow easily in most cases.
  • Have heavier liquids like syrups or oils? Use a 2” faucet or gate valve.

Three types of drum faucets to consider – Plastic Faucets, Metal Faucets and Safety Faucets.

Plastic Faucet:

  • Low cost
  • Easy, tools-free installation
  • For chemicals like acids or alkalis that need corrosion-resistant faucet

Metal faucets:

  • Iron is extremely durable.
  • Brass and aluminum are non-sparking.
  • Zinc is the most economical for light oils, cleaners, and non-flammable solvents and paints.
  • Most metallic faucets are self-closing and lockable.
  • Working with heavier oils and lubricants? Use an oil gate.

Safety Faucet:

  • Examples of this kind of drum faucet: Model 502 or Model 752
  • Factory Mutual (FM)-Approved with self-closing handle and built-in flash arrestor to prevent flashback of fire into the drum
  • Work perfectly with our FM-Approved vent plugs, safety cans, and grounding/bonding wires
  • For Flammables that require special handling
