Wide Variety of Pail Faucets

Pointers to Help You Choose the Right Pail Faucet

Choosing a bucket faucet might seem simple at first, but many factors are involved in choosing the right one:

What’s The Product? The two most important factors are physical properties and chemical properties.

  • Working with thin, free-running liquids? Choose a 3/4” 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.

Chemicals like acids or alkalis call for a corrosion-resistant plastic faucet.

  • Low cost
  • Easy, tools-free installation

Metal faucets are available in iron, brass, aluminum, or diecast zinc.

  • 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.

"Flammables" Require Special Handling. Use an FM Approved Safety Faucet.

  • Examples: SKU 502 or SKU 752
  • Factory Mutual (FM)-Approved with self-closing handle and built-in flash arrestor to prevent flashback of fire into the bucket
  • Work perfectly with our FM-Approved vent plugs, safety cans, and grounding/bonding wires
