  • Drum Faucets suitable for Chemicals

    Drum faucets are great for dispensing fluids in a controlled manner directly from a steel or plastic drum. Simple to use, just screw the faucet into the opening on the top of a drum and turn the knob on / off to use.

    But what if you need to dispense corrosive fluids / chemicals such as acids? The need for a suitable drum faucet is even greater due to spill containment requirements and hazards to workers handling drums with acids. The drum faucet construction material and any associated seals needs to be corrosion-resistant to prevent leaks as well.

    The solution: a drum faucet made of polyethylene. Rieke Packaging manufactures the "Flo-King", a polyethylene drum faucet with an EPDM gasket. With a 2" male NPT thread, connects easily to many plastic and steel drums. The Flo-King has a 2" opening and can empty a 208 litre drum in 3 minutes. Can be used with a wide range of chemicals, including 35% hydrochloric acid (HCL) and 80% sodium hydroxide (NaOH). Rieke also offers a version with a 3/4" NPT male thread call the Flo-Rite.

  • Choosing Drum Handling Equipment

    Users have a wide variety of choices when it comes to purchasing drum handling equipment. Before deciding on a particular product, an end-user should have clarity that the proposed solution will fit their requirements. With this in mind, Raptor Supplies has put together a quick guide of things to consider when evaluating drum handling options:

    Drum type: Should work with your particular drum type, whether a steel, poly or fiber drum. Be careful with fiber drums as picking the wrong product could lead to a puncture or damage.

    Drum size: Consider the drum size, whether it’s a 30 / 50 / 85 gallon drum that needs to be handled. Pay particular attention to the height of the drum. Drums that are too high or too short may require an accessory or a different drum handling solution.

    Drum diameter: Will the product work with the diameter of your drum? Drums with diameters less than the standard 22.5” diameter need to pay attention to this. From a safety perspective, drums need to fit securely and not be loose or too tight as to cause drum damage or work injuries.

    Drum capacity: Whatever equipment you are evaluating needs to rated for the weight of your drum. Not a good idea to handle an 800lb drum with equipment only specified to handle 400lb.

    Drum functionality: Does the equipment need to be multi-functional? For instance, do you need a drum lifer that dispenses as well? One should checking drum handling options that have more than one function. This can save you money and also space in your work area.

    Drum access: Can a drum handler easily access the drum? Is there 4-sided accessibility to a drum or pallet + sufficient free space in front for the equipment to manoeuvre without obstruction?

    Drum surface: Is the surface of the drum rimmed or smooth? This should be considered when handling drums from the side (long edge) as some drum equipment will only work on a rimmed or smooth drums but not both.

    Drum versatility: Do you need to handle only one or several drum types / sizes? Is it worth investing in a unit that can handle multiple drum types? It could save you both money and avoid the need for multiple drum handlers taking up valuable space in your facility.

    Drum position: Are you moving a drum off the ground, a pallet or a platform that won’t allow the legs of a drum handler to fit underneath? Any unit with forward legs will generally not fit under a pallet and would require a solution that can meet a pallet at right angles.

    Lifting height: Does the proposed solution lift the drum to the required height? The maximum height must fit your clearance requirement. Does the minimum height work with your drum height? (a unit that lowers to 25” will not work with a drum height of 20” that has to be lowered to ground level)

    Frequency of use: If you need to handle drums often, it may make sense to use a powered version to reduce injury risks. This could be battery or AC-powered depending on the need. For occasional use, a manual version would work both for your budget and drum handling needs.

    Voltage: If purchasing an electric drum handler, check that the electrical specifications conform to your region (115v vs. 220v / 50hz vs. 60hz / 1 phase vs 3 phase).

    Confined space: Is your equipment going to operate in a confined work space? Make sure your area has the required height clearance to enable the equipment to work properly. If your work area has narrow corridors, be mindful that your solution will fit width and turning radius restrictions.

    Vertical lifting: If you handle a drum vertically, make sure the drum has a rim that will securely catch with your equipment. Some handlers may require a minimum drum chime (length of the inside rim) to work.

    Non-standard drums: Handling pails and cans often cannot be achieved with the same equipment used for a standard 30 or 55 gallon drums. Generally, there are drum handling equipment available that is designed specifically for handling smaller containers such as pails. Drums or containers that may have protrusions may not work on some drum handlers.

    Environment: Is the drum handling product going to be used in the food / pharmaceutical industries or in a hazardous or spark-prone environment? Stainless steel and non-sparking monel versions should be in these work environments.
