This form of drum is often much cheaper, as is typically the case with buying used products, but they also offer virtually the same advantages of purchasing brand new industrial containers for your project or job. Depending on your application there may be certain standards that you have to adhere to when shipping, especially if you are working with a dangerous or hazardous material. Be sure to check with the necessary officials on what these standards are and check with your reconditioned drum manufacturer to ensure that these standards are met before purchasing your order of drums.

There are two main categories or types of industrial drums, one is an open top drum and the other is a welded top drum. Open top drums have a removable lid to allow for easy access to the stored contents, and these are more commonly used for storage than shipping. Welded top drums, on the other hand, have their lid welded on to keep the contents from leaking or spilling, so these are typically used for shipping purposes or for more permanent storage. These two types of drums can be made from a number of different materials such as steel, plastics, paperboard, or a number of other metals depending on your application and requirements.

The manufacturing process is also heavily dependent on your applications needs and the material that is being used. For example if your application requires a plastic open top drum the injection blow molding process is typically utilized in order to achieve the right specifications. On the other hand metal drums are commonly manufactured from cold-rolled steel sheets that are then welded together and forged on a stamping press into their final shape.

Fortunately, with reconditioned drums, the manufacturing process is not quite as important, it still plays a part and is good information to know, but typically you will be able to evaluate the final product before your purchase to ensure that the right materials were used, the barrel was manufactured correctly, and that it has properly been restored since its previous use.

The best way to ensure that you receive a top of the line reconditioned drum is to work with an experienced drum manufacturer that has the right tools and knowledge to provide you with a reconditioned drum that will fit your needs and requirements.
