In the basic configuration Drums are provided with two rolling beads in each thickness variant – type A. By 1.0 mm - 1.2 mm thickness the Spiraltainer® reinforcement can be added – type B. Combination of Spiraltainer® reinforcement and 2 x 3 additional corrugations – type C – is optimal for drum bodies with thickness less than 1.00 mm. Type C enhances the body resistance against deformations by radial forces during transport or manipulation.
Drums with Spiraltainer® reinforcement have increased resistance against decompression in comparison to conventional rolling beads of type A. Drums with Spiraltainer® reinforcement enable filling of substances under higher temperatures without the risk of drum body deformation.
Drums with all types of beads/corrugation at ∅ 585 mm are fully compatible with 20 and 40 feet ISO containers which can hold 80 or 160 filled drums placed by fours next to each other. The compatibility is also ensured by using of 800 x 1200 mm or 1200 x 1200 mm pallets.
