Steel drums are key tools in industrial packaging, but they can be improved farther than the way that their initially produced. Accessories for your steel drums like the ones below can change your steel drums’ performance for the better, so take a look at what’s out there.
Drum pumps come in a variety of materials and sizes, and are used to get liquid out of your drums. They’re intuitive and easy to use with a simple design. In order to use a drum pump, one must simply remove its safety latch, insert it into a hole in the drum, screw on the safety latch, affix a hose from the pump to the container, and start pumping. Unless you’re using your steel drums as glorified trash cans for waste products with no intent of accessing those substances ever again, a drum pump is necessary for getting out what you put into your steel drum. Especially if you’re running a business that hopes to recycle their steel drums by using a service such as those offered at Incineration Recycling Services, you’re going to want to be able to empty your steel drums without damaging them.
Drum liners vary a lot, and it’s best you know what liner will suit your needs before ordering liners that might not even end up being useful to you. Drum liners are able to decrease the amount of contact that the liquid in your drum will actually end up having with the drum itself. This proves useful in cases where you’re worried that the drum could contaminate the liquid in it (such as rust getting into water), or when you’d like to preserve the viability of the drum to be used in the future. Fold-back drum liners are designed to fold over the lip of the drum, its being kept in place contingent on the top of the drum staying sealed. By contrast, tie-top drum liners are more self-contained, the purpose of the drum itself then only really being transport.
Using accessories like drum pumps and drum liners only serve to extend the lifetime of your steel drums and should definitely be looked into for those trying to recycle their industrial packaging. Explore your steel drum accessory options and contact Incineration Recycling Services today!
