Fluid Transfer Systems For Oil And Anti-Freeze
Emerson sells a Lubeq self-evacuation oil drain that holds 21 gallons and comes with two sturdy plastic drain bowls. The basic bowl is 15 Ĺ in. in diameter and a 14 in. size is a strainer for oil filters. A 21 in. diameter model funnel is used to drain transmissions. The drain bowl mechanism for the holding tank adjusts up 40 in. to 60 in. and is secured by a locking pin to hold the bowl in place and protect accidental blow out. The tank rolls on 3 swivel casters, 2 which can be locked to hold the unit in place. Emptying the tank is done when the tank is pressurized to 12 psi and a valve to the 6 ft. drain hose attached to the bottom of the tank is opened. A safety valve is set at 15 psi. The unit sells for $445.
Emerson also offers an ATF-16A Antifreeze Caddy and the OC-16A Waste Oil Caddy for quick and mess-free fluid changes. Both devices catch fluids in a 16 gal. recepticle thatís 9 Ĺ in. high and 20 in. in diameter. A splash guard on the catch basin defuses fluid as it drains into the pan. Emptying the pan is done by pressurizing it to 12 psi, then moving the 8 ft. long drain hose to a tank or barrel. For easier storage, the caddy stands on end and has a drip guard in the drain pan to keep fluids from draining on the floor. The Antifreeze caddy has a ĺ in. flow control valve on the drain hose and a reusable 100 micron tubular screen filter.
