Drum Lifter And Dumper
You will often find a drum lifter and dumper in facilities that deal with liquid chemicals. It helps in the transfer of the contents from the storage drums to the destination for processing. Various types are available from different manufacturers. Consider the following when making purchases:
The load capacity is one of the biggest considerations. You want a lifter that can carry the expected weight of a full drum given the typical contents. Most products on the market can carry 400lbs up to 1,500lbs.
Consider the material used as well. Common options are steel, carbon steel, and polyester webbing. Steel is by far the most popular with its impressive strength and low cost. However, it is susceptible to corrosion. Carbon steel is even harder than steel. Polyester webbing is flexible, slip-resistant, and easy to clean.
The design of the product will determine the easy of use and the suitability for the particular application.
