JohnDow Adds New 18-Gallon Self-Evacuating Oil Drain With Auto Check Technology

In an on-going effort to increase customer productivity, JohnDow Industries has added the JDI-18DC 18-Gallon Self-Evacuating Portable Oil Drain to its line of drains and fluid handling equipment.

The new oil drain includes “Auto Check,” a user-friendly feature found only on JohnDow Self-Evacuating oil drains, says the company. “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 36-½ “ to 92”
  • 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.

The JohnDow Industries line includes both steel and poly constructed oil drains. Products include:

  • Portable oil drains
  • Self evacuating oil drains
  • Low profile oil & fluid drains
  • Oil drain funnels
  • Pump assist oil drains
  • Economy self evacuating fluid drains
  • Fluid evacuators
