Industrial packaging plays an integral role in today's economy. From the manufacturing and shipping of goods to the protection of sensitive items, industrial packaging helps make businesses run smoother and ensures that products are maintained properly throughout transit. As the industrial age continues to evolve, industrial packaging solutions are more important than ever. They can either make or break the business.Industrial packaging involves a variety of shapes and sizes, with various materials to choose between. Each product has its own requirements when it comes to packaging, so it’s important to know which type of industrial packaging works best in any given situation.
Drums are a fantastic way of storing and transporting several different types of materials and resources. They are used widely across industries including waste management, healthcare and food services. However, their function in such a broad range of sectors means there isn’t a ‘one size fits all’ solution. When it comes to shipping and storage, the right barrel drums can make all the difference. That's why it's important to know the pros and cons of each material before making a decision.
They are constructed from heavy-gauge steel, these barrels provide reliable and durable storage solutions that can be trusted to remain leak-proof in even the toughest of conditions. They usually have lids with locking rings for added security and the interior has a non-corrosive coating to prevent corrosion making them a great choice for use in wet or humid climates. They are ideal for storing, transporting and containing toxic and hazardous materials,Lubricating oil, paints, chemicals, solvents etc as they tend to be non-reactive. Steel drums can be cleaned and decontaminated and used multiple times as and when needed and once it reaches its life span without any complication it can be easily recycled too. The unique ability of steel barrel drum to be recycled and reused make them an outstanding and earth-friendly option for industrial and transport packaging.
Plastic barrels are affordable because plastic is cheaper and easier to produce than metal, these barrels cost less than steel barrels.Plastic barrel drums offer the advantage of being lightweight and easy to transport, but they may not be able to withstand extreme temperatures or chemical storage. Unlike steel barrel drums plastic barrels take longer time to decompose meaning they are less environmentally friendly. plastic drums are not as strong or durable as steel barrel drums. They may be more vulnerable to denting and damage if dropped or mishandled.Plastic, or polyethylene barrels, may retain some of the flavour of the previous contents, which can leech back into the new contents.
Fiber barrel drums offer excellent protection against moisture, temperature, and corrosion. Plus, they have a higher weight capacity than plastic drums. However, they need to be handled with care due to their fragile nature. The main drawback, however, is that they generally are not appropriate for transporting hazardous materials. They are, however, hard-wearing and an eco-friendly option because they will degrade naturally over time.
