Force-Flo: Vacuum Loader

September 27, 2000
This company’s new vacuum loader is an economical tool to move low-viscosity adhesives, sealants, caulks and other materials from 5-gallon pails to caulking guns. The loader fits metal and plastic, straight and tapered 5-gallon pails. By attaching the caulking-gun barrel to the outlet adapter on the loader, and pulling the follower rod of the caulking gun out, material is sucked into the gun without contact with the material. The large-diameter, flexible neoprene or Viton® seal assures a positive seal for priming and use of all the material in the pail.
