Drum Pumps

Durability and reliability are two of the most important features of any drum pump. They take a lot of abuse and are often used to transfer a variety of chemicals out of drums and process tanks. Drum pumps are typically sized with a 39-40” pump tube to fit a standard 55 gallon drum. JSA supplies complete pumps and replacement parts for most manufacturers including Finish Thompson, Galway, Lutz, Serfilco & Sethco.

When Selecting a Drum Pump it is important to consider:

  • What types of chemicals will you be pumping?
    • Chemical Composition
    • Viscosity
    • Temperature
  • How fast does the solution need to be transferred?
  • How far does the solution need to be pumped?
  • What style of pump do you require? Air operated or electric?
