In industries, most materials especially the hazardous ones, are stored and moved in drums
. For efficient production in your facility, you need the right drums and drum handling equipment. In some cases, the equipment might also include the filing, sight gauges and dispending systems.
Drums help to hold the material being stored/ moved. Depending on the nature of the materials being handled, you might need plastic or metallic drums. For example, many vegetable oil processing facilities use plastic drums while beer manufacturers go for barrels.
The drum handling equipment is used for transporting or holding the drums in position for filling or dispensing. For example, drum trolleys
and dollies are designed with solid or pneumatic tires to hold the drums during movement.
Another category of drums and drum handling equipment is the lifting equipment
. These are important types of equipment that help to lift drums and place them on trolleys or machines. They have a chassis and a hydraulic pump grip for holding drums.
