To minimise degradation, contamination, and even costly waste disposal, lubricating oils and liquids must be stored and handled properly. Many issues that might cause degradation and waste, from defective containers to excessive heat or cold exposure, can be readily prevented by adopting a few best practises. Examine how you might enhance your lubricant storage and handling methods to maintain their integrity.
Fuels, oil, lubricants, chemicals, adhesives, rubber latex, essential oils, and other liquid commodities are stored and transported in drums and barrels. Depending on the contents to be packed, drums and barrels come in a range of sizes and gauges. As a result, in order to prevent drum contents from leaking, pilferage, internal moisture, and other concerns, the right type of drum cap seals must be placed flawlessly to complete drum packing.
What Kind of Transport Do do You Need for Stainless Steel Drums?
Barrels and drums are some of the most extensively used and durable pieces of industrial storage equipment, but while transporting steel drums, organisations and people must adhere to strict health and safety standards and regulations.
Chemicals, gasoline, oil, explosives, and other potentially hazardous or dangerous industrial items are routinely stored in these large and heavy containers (which may weigh up to 200 kg when completely filled).
If you’re planning to move steel drums, keep reading to learn more about what you should think about before doing so.
What Needs to Be Considered Before Transporting Steel Drums?
Drums and barrels are tough industrial storage containers, but there’s a lot to think about and plan for when it comes to transporting them. If you want to transfer steel drums, you’ll need to devise a strategy to determine the safest mode of transportation.
The following are the most important considerations:
- The contents of the steel drums (are the goods hazardous? delicate?)
- The weight of the drums when fully loaded
- The number of steel drums to be transported
- The distance they are being transported
- The methods and routes of transport available (are they being flown or traveling by road?)
- Health and safety rules
- Laws that need to be followed
You should also think about your previous experience carrying industrial items. If you’ve never transported hazardous chemicals before, hiring a professional rather than doing it yourself is an excellent option.
