How to Use Drum Unloader Seal Protector

STEP 1: Place the Drum Unloader Seal Protector over the drum of material as shown on the right. Make sure the center hole in the seal protector is lined up with the pump inlet on the bottom of the plate.

STEP 2: Lower ram plate and seal into the drum and onto the fluid as you would without the protective film. The film should naturally protect the plate and seal from the material and wrap it over the edge to cover the seal.

STEP 3: Inflate seal it contacts the ID of the drum and sealing fluid from coming up around the edge of the plate. Start the ram pressure down and turn on the pump. The protective film will be trapped between plate and material and move down the drum as the pump and ram are pumping out material and moving down.

STEP 4: Stop ram, turn off the pump, and deflate seal to remove the ram from the drum. When raised, the protective film will stay within the drum on the material. Evacuation can be resumed at any time by reinserting the ram into the drum and following steps 2 and 3 above.
