Why Polyethylene Drums Could Be Ideal For Your Industrial Business

Why Polyethylene Drums Could Be Ideal For Your Industrial Business

Are you looking for drums that are capable of storing chemicals, food, pharmaceutical products, and more? Polyethylene drums, which are also sometimes referred to as plastic drums, would be an excellent choice for you. Here are some of the things you need to know about polyethylene drums before you start using them.

They’re perfect for those looking for drums for industrial purposes.

One of the first things you need to know about polyethylene drums is that they’re made from high-density polyethylene, also known as HDPE. HDPE is great for those searching for drums that can stand up to industrial demands because they’re resistant to anything that has either a high or low pH level. They also have sidewalls that are very thick and durable, which allows them to withstand the beating they often take in industrial facilities.

They’re easy to handle.

If you decide to use polyethylene drums in your industrial facility, you must be careful when handling them. Mishandling polyethylene drums can lead to them tipping over and spilling whatever is inside. This could be especially dangerous if you have hazardous materials in them. However, the good news is that polyethylene drums are fairly easy to handle. As long as you avoid rolling them and place them on pallets when moving them around, you shouldn’t have any trouble keeping them safe.

They’re available in open head and closed head options.

When you’re searching for polyethylene drums to store materials, you’ll have the option of going with either open head polyethylene drums or closed head polyethylene drums. As their names would suggest, open head drums have a lid that comes off, while closed head drums have lids that stay in place. Both are great options for those looking for drums, but you should consider what you’ll be storing in them before deciding which one would be right for you.

If your company is in need of polyethylene drums or any other types of containers, Container Distributors can supply you with them. Call us at 800-366-5098 today to place an order or to ask questions about the containers we have in stock.
