Mandar Pneumatic and Electric motorized as also hand operated barrel pumps are acknowledged as being simple, safe and reliable. Mandar Barrel pumps (also known as Mandar Drum pumps or container pumps are suitable for pumping various low-viscosity and high viscosity fluids as also for transferring of aggressive and highly-flammable fluids

Barrel Pump
What is a Barrel Pump?

A pump placed on or inside Barrel to remove and transfer the liquid which is inside is known as a Barrel pump. There are many types of Mandar Barrel pumps available in different tube lengths, materials and models. MAndar Barrel pumps can be Pneumatic Barrel pumps or Motorised barrel pumps or even manually operated barrel pumps

Pneumatic Barrel pumps are commonly used for the safe and efficient handling of flammable chemicals, solvents, petroleum products, diesel oil, and fuel oils,

Electrical Barrel Pumps are commonly used for the safe and efficient handling of corrosive chemicals, acids, other liquids.

The Mandar Barrel pumps allow easy removal of fluids from barrels and eliminate danger of spillage, explosion hazards.

Both the pneumatic and electrical Barrel pumps can be directly inserted in to the barrel and fits on the bung hole by means of threading provided on the pump adopter. It sucks the liquid from the bottom and hence less chances of leftover material.

The Piston type pneumatic Barrel pump does not have any type of motor and hence virtually zero maintenance.

  • Mandar Pneumatic Barrel pumps will not be affected when pumping against a closed outlet.
Applications of Mandar Barrel pumps :
  •  Pneumatic and Electrical Barrel pumps are commonly used for chemical, paints and ink transfer. They are used in Chemical, Mining, Construction, Cement, Food, Pharma and Marine (Sea water) , Agarbatti and aroma industries
  •  Pneumatic and Electrical Barrel pumps are used in  for transfer of Acids, Solvents, Chemicals, Bilge, Paint, , Fuel transfer, Lube transfer, Coatings, Printing Inks, Adhesives, Ink Circulation, Oil, Petrochemicals, Fluid transfer, Diesel oil and Fuels

How Do Barrel pumps Work?

A Barrel pump works by fitting into a drum by way of its narrow tube, which houses a vertical shaft. The Barrel pump also consists of a small motor attached to the shaft, which runs electric or air motor.

Check the compatibility of your application with the Barrel pump’s head and flow, chemical type, fluid, viscosity, size and motor.
Make sure the outer tube material is chemically resistant to the fluid in your drum.
Select an air drive motor if the liquid you are pumping is flammable or combustible.

How to Choose the Right Barrel pump?

The selection of a Barrel pump depends on many factors such as the chemical to be pumped, Viscosity, distance of liquid transfer, required flow rate and other parameters. Determine how the pump is going to be used to choose the right pump series, motor type, accessories and major pump type.

1. Check the compatibility of your application with the Barrel pump’s head and flow, chemical type, fluid, viscosity, size and motor.
2. Make sure the outer tube material is chemically resistant to the fluid in your drum.
3. Select an air drive motor if the liquid you are pumping is flammable or combustible.

Types of Barrel pumps

There are two major types of Barrel pumps: hand operated Barrel pump or motorized Barrel pump ( motor can be Electric or Pneumatic)

Mandar Hand-Operated Barrel pumps

Hand-operated Barrel pumps, as their name suggests, are powered by hand, instead of a motor. They are ideal for remote pumping applications and in instances where there’s little to no power available. Mandar Hand pumps are available as Rotary, Piston or Diaphragm type

Hand Operated Barrel Pumps

Mandar Motorized ( Electric or Pneumatic Barrel pumps)

Motorized Barrel pumps are great to use for tasks that involve a higher volume transfer. They are available with Electric motor or Air motors.

Hand Operated Barrel Pumps

Hand-Operated vs. Electric or Pneumatic Operated Drum Pumps


Hand Operated Electric Pneumatic Operated
Fluid Types Oils, diesel, gasoline, anti-freeze, kerosene, soap solutions Additives, dyes, chemicals that need blending, exhaust fluid
Volume Types Low-Medium High
Use Intervals Intermittent drainage of drums Regular drainage of drums
Working Mechanisms Must be twisted at the nozzle Can be plugged in or run on a battery

Benefits of Using a Barrel pump

Barrel pumps are both a practical and useful option for emptying out and transferring the liquids in drums. Other benefits of Barrel pumps include portability, the ability to be hard-piped into the system and that they are available in metallic and non-metallic materials to minimize corrosion when the pump is in use with corrosive liquids..
