Modern technologies of production of drums
Semi-finished products used for drums assembling are made on presses or by cutting. Drum bodies are welded with a longitudinal continuous resistance weld, tops and bottoms of drum are interlocked to drum body by forming rollers.Tops of drums with removable tops are secured with a properly profiled closing ring with lever. Tri-Sure ® closures are installed by pressing the flanges into the drum tops.
The surface finishing is performed by airless spraying of one paint layer. Specific spray nozzles enable also two colour wet painting of the drum body.
The water based paints used contain max. 1% of organic solvents. After wet application the painted drums are cured in efficient ovens heated by natural gas. The investments into the curing ovens enabled us to use only 15% of the allowed emission and pollution limits. Every large 216,5l drum is leak-proof tested by a special in-line device able to detect and isolate drums which are not completely tight.
Steel drums produced by our company fully meet the requirements for environmentally friendly products – from production, through use, up to the end of their 'life-cycle', as the production is supported by technologies and processes creating minimum of waste. The drums are produced with high performance properties by a minimum material consumption; each drum can be recycled to 100% of its weight.
