Drum Packaging

Drum Packaging

New drums are produced according to the following processes;

The Galvanised Drum bodies are welded on our automated drum welder these bodies are folded and palletised into nested clusters of 25 bodies, 6 nested clusters per pallet allowing for 150 bodies per pallet. The lids and bottoms are pressed with our uniquely designed profiles allowing for greater volume of product being transported.

The drum sets are loaded onto a Taut Liner Super Link Truck in quantities of 2000 or 2250 depending on the drum size.
The improved logistics model creates a 6-times saving for inward bound transport cost per drum thereby reducing carbon emission on diesel usage in the transport sector

Drum Assembly and stripping services
That Drum International specializes in the recollection of drums at the decanters. With our stripping technology TDI is able to collect drums strip them into their components knock them down and reuse the drum. Enabling TDI to relocate second hand drums at a cost effective rate anywhere on the globe.

Drum Stripping process

  • After drums have been decanted they are prepared for the stripping disassembly process.
  • The bottoms of the drums are pulled off of the body of the drum, reformed and packed.
  • The stripped body is folded and packed into clusters.
  • The lids and rings are repacked ready for despatch.
  • The Stripped drum is sent world-wide for reassembly

Drum Assembly
The drum sets are received and assembled when they are ready to be filled.
A trained That Drum operator is based on site or a customer’s employee is trained to assemble drums on site.

  • The drum body is rerolled in preparation for assemble
  • The drum bottom is seamed onto the body of the drum
  • The drum is then ready for refilling

Advantages of the assembly process:

  • Reduction of drum deliveries due to 1400/1650 drums being delivered per load.
  • Storage space for drums is greatly reduced.
  • Drums can be assembled only when they are required.
  • The assembly machines can be close to the drum filling points to reduce internal drum movement.
  • Our drums circumvent traditional reconditioning practices that lower the total CO2e of our drums
  • Reassembled drums are not cut, therefore height and capacity of each drum remains constant to original size and spec
