Drum Faucets / Drum Spigots

to control the flow of liquid from your drums

Drum faucets / drum spigots are available for standard 2" and 3/4" bung sizes (5.1 and 1.9 cm bung diameters) on 30 and 55-gallon steel drums (114 and 210 liter steel drums). They allow you to start, stop or adjust the flow while you dispense from a drum. Order a drum faucet compatible with the liquid you are dispensing.

Note about buttress thread adaptorsNOTE: The bung on your PLASTIC drum may have more coarse "buttress thread," which requires an adaptor to accept the pipe thread on Morse drum faucets.

Morse drum faucets are NOT considered "food grade"
