Plastic and Fiber Drum Handling

Plastic and fibre drums are often extremely unstable during pickup and pouring operations due to the flexible side walls of the drums. Through the installation of a stabilizing collar, also called a drum support, around the top flange, plastic and fibre drums can now be rotated and picked up safely.

During the squeeze operation at drum pickup, the stabilizing collar makes use of the tabs that mate with the lifter grippers. To assist in maintaining position, the collar keeps the drum walls from deforming during the pour operation. Once the drum’s contents have been poured out, the collar is then removed and reassigned to the next drum that requires dumping. The primary focus of these designs is to produce an ergonomic solution while maintaining a Clean Room Finish (CRF). Solve your plastic and fibre drum material handling problems today and ensure that you are able to safely and efficiently move and use drums of all materials.
