Open Top Plastic Drum 30L

What is the Purpose of an Open Top Plastic Drum?

This product is typically used with powdered solids, because the lid can be opened allowing for easy access to the material inside. It is much easier to be able to scoop out a certain amount of solid than it would be to pour it out. A plastic drum can be used to hold foodstuffs or other fine solid substances.

Where Can This Product be Used?

An open top plastic drum is important in pharmaceutical production and transport as well as powdered solid storage that might be encountered in a facility that handles foodstuffs. Pharmaceutical ingredients can be expensive so it is important to make sure they are transported in containers that will not react with them like metal might.

Facilities that manufacture food or food additives will also benefit from such a storage container. Plastic ensures safe storage and transport, because it is approved for food-grade materials.

Who Might Use This Product?

Food production workers might use an open top plastic drum to store necessary ingredients in bulk or to transfer a finished product. Pharmaceutical manufacturers would benefit from an open top plastic drum because of its ease of access and its ability to safely hold material without risking a reaction.

Open Top Plastic Drum Specifications

Made for materials with a granule, paste, or solid consistency, these drums are sturdy. They are made to handle food grade polyethylene and are suitable for hazardous solids by UN standards. The lids are removable and have a metal band and tension clasp to keep them in place when they are on the drum. Open top plastic drums from the Workplace Depot are blue and come in 4 different sizes: 30L (carrying handle), 60L (carrying handle), 120L, and 220L. This product has a 1-year warranty.
