JohnDow Adds 18 Gallon Self-Evacuating Oil Drain

Barberton, Ohio – In an on-going effort to increase customer productivity, JohnDow Industries has added an additional oil drain to its extensive line of fuel handling equipment.  The JDI-18DC 18-Gallon Self-Evacuating Portable Oil Drain fills an industry need for a quality, mid-sized, economical product and will open additional markets for JohnDow.

The new oil drain includes “Auto Check” a user-friendly feature found only on JohnDow Self-Evacuating oil drains.  “Auto Check” technology eliminates the confusing procedure of opening and closing manual ball valves with its automatic pressure valve located at the bottom of the down tube.  Emptying the drain has never been cleaner, easier or more automatic!  Additional features include:

  • 18-gallon steel tank
  • 6′ discharge hose
  • pressure relief safety valve
  • OSHA friendly labeling
  • reinforced 16″ deep drawn “centered” funnel
  • 4-caster design providing superior stability and mobility
  • height adjustable from 36.5″ to 59″
  • weight – 42 lbs.

The pressure relief safety valve provides added safety by preventing the tank from over-pressurizing.  Once the optimum evacuation is reached in the tank, the safety valve will relieve any excess pressure.  The four 3″ swivel casters make this drain easy to move and position under a vehicle.  The casters are made of an oil and chemical resistant material that gives them an extended service life.  The 16″ deep drawn funnel makes it easier to accurately position to catch every bit of oil.
