Product Description

Powered by compressed air, this Tornado oil recovery vacuum creates waterlift substantially beyond that found in traditional wet/dry vacuums. This air powered vacuum is designed for wet recovery applications requiring extremely aggressive pick-up power, like those found in automotive repair shop settings. This specific model does extremely well in recovering all types of oil.

The unit is shipped standard with a 3/16" jet installed in the Venturi powerhead. A 7/32" and 1/4" jet is supplied in the unit and can be installed by the user. These larger jets are used to increase performance for the recovery of heavier material although the smallest air jet possible to do the job is strongly recommended to conserve plant air.

This 55 gallon drum air powered oil recovery vacuum does not come with any accessories. Those need to be purchased separately, and can be seen in the Tornado® 2 inch industrial vac tool kit, which includes a 2" x 10' poly hose, a 2" aluminum wand, a 2" x 12" floor gulper tool w/ brass shoes, a 2" x 22" aluminum squeegee floor tool, a 2" x 18" round nozzle, and a 2" hose adapter. Poly hoses are not ideal for oil recovery, so a neoprene hose (ID# TOR-90324) should be purchased separately. If you would like to purchase any of these tools individually, or have questions about them, please give us a call at 888-722-5508.

We also have a quad filter wet vacuum, which can be found in our jumbo industrial wet vacuums department, and is used for the recovery of heavier liquids. These include heavy oils and sludges. Both vacuums are manufactured by Tornado and come mounted on 55 gallon drums, so they can be sealed off when full and moved to a new drum. This air powered oil vacuum comes with 2 powerhead filters that create the vacuum suction. They come standard with float valves to shut the vacuum motors off when the barrel becomes full of oil or other liquids.

*Please Note: This vacuum requires an air compressor, airline, and line couplings to run, which are not available from
