An alternative to the traditional steel drum that offers a huge saving on storage space, has been launched by independent manufacturer Ramsden Steel Drums Ltd.
The conical 220 Ltr open head drums, in a range of four thicknesses, are ideal for all traditional oil and chemical markets, but are also suitable for food processing industries, powders, metals and much wider markets. "The ability to stack a high number of drums on a single pallet is already attracting a lot of interest from new markets," said sales director Dawn Richardson.
"A maximum of 68 drums can be stored on one pallet, compared to the traditional drum storage of four drums per pallet. This will dramatically reduce warehousing and logistical costs as less space is required for the storage of these containers."
The steel drums vary in weight between 13 Kg to 16.5 Kg, depending upon steel thickness and UN certification and can be supplied with or without head closures or internal lacquer lining.
Added Dawn: "Our focus on customer service will remain our priority. Our intention is to expand our range of standard steel drums to include innovative new products and we have commenced with this range of conicle space-savers."
