More information about drum pumps:

Drum pumps use a narrow vertical shaft pump with the pumping end at the bottom of the tube that is inserted into the barrel. The outlet connection on the pump may lead to smaller containers or a larger basin meant to hold the fluid.

Some are run by an electric motor, while others may be cranked by hand power. Hand-cranked pumps are common in the food and agricultural industries, and electric-motor drum pumps are more often used to pump viscous or corrosive liquids when minimal human contact is preferred. For larger containers, electrically powered piston pumps, diaphragm pumps, and pneumatic pumps are often used.
