Plastic Barrel Drums Questions

A poly drum is a type of drum made from polyethylene. They’re commonly used for storing, transporting and containing hazardous materials. Eagle poly drums comply with specific regulatory requirements, such as those outlined by the Department of Transportation (DOT).

The following set of questions and answers provide insights into poly drums—what they are made of, their use cases, and the distinctions between closure types and containers.

What are plastic drums used for?

Plastic drums have a wide range of applications across various industries. They can be used to safely store, handle and transport hazardous materials. They can also be used for spill containment and clean up or biowaste disposal and incineration. Other use cases include serving as a spill kit container or original shipping container.

What are the different drum closure types?

Drum closures refer to the various mechanisms used to seal and secure the openings of drums. The choice of closure type depends on the specific requirements of the contents being stored or transported. Some common drum closure types include lever-lock closures, metal bolt ring closures and screw-on lid closures. Lever-lock closures provide easy access for applications where the drum needs to be opened frequently. The built-in latch clamps the drum’s lid or ring into place. Metal bolt ring closures fit around the circumference of the drum’s opening, and require a torque wrench to tighten or untighten. This provides a more secure closure. Screw-on lid closures provide convenient drum access, with a simple twist to tighten or loosen. This type of closure is commonly used for smaller plastic drums or containers.

What are poly drums made of?

Poly drums are made of high-density polyethylene with UV inhibitors. This versatile and durable material is chemical resistant, making it suitable for a wide range of applications across different industries. Polyethylene is relatively lightweight compared to alternatives, like steel drums.

What is the difference between overpacks and salvage drums?

Overpacks and salvage drums are both used for storing, handling and transporting hazardous materials. While they serve similar purposes, there are distinct differences between the two. Overpacks are used to contain larger containers and cans holding hazardous materials. They’re not intended to replace the original container, but serve as an extra layer of containment to facilitate handling and transportation. Salvage drums, on the other hand, are designed specifically for the storage and transportation of damaged, leaking, or non-compliant containers of hazardous materials. They’re built to contain and prevent the spread of hazardous substances in case of leaks or spills.
