Bidones de acero con tapa fija o tapa móvil y bidones compuestos

Steel drums are classified into two groups, with fixed or movable lids, depending on whether the product to be packaged is solid, pasty, powdery or liquid.

Stainless steel drums with movable lids are suitable for the packaging of solid, powdery or pasty products and those with fixed lids for the packaging of liquid products.

Depending on the type of product to be transported, the inner wall of the drums or inner finish can be neutral (without coating, and therefore the product is in direct contact with the metal), or coated with EPOXI (or one of its derivatives).

The coatings reduce or slow down the atmospheric oxidation of the metal, as well as the aggressions that the metal can suffer when in contact with aggressive products.

Capacities from 5L to 220L.
