The Agitator drum, manufactured by Greif in the United States and the United Kingdom, brings a technological advancement in paint mixing. Used widely in the U.S. coatings market, the Agitator drum offers precision in cross mixing to give consistency throughout the batch. Standard 216.5-liter/55-gallon tight-head and open-head steel drums are modified to accept single- and double-bladed agitator assemblies, which are welded to an operating rod mounted on brackets attached to the drum ends. Agitator drums can be operated through a center fitting, which is plugged during shipment.
The blade itself has a socket in the bottom that allows the mechanism to fit over a welded pivot pin attached to the center of the drum base. It rides close to the bottom, enabling full blending of virutally all settled pigments. The Agitator drum creates a vortex effect to give a more accurate overall finish than traditional paint-mixing methods, such as hand blending. Tests show that the drum can restore even heavily pigmented material to laboratory conditions. Due to these properties, the Agitator drum is also effective for the adhesives, sealants and lubricants industries.
Salvage drums are specifically designed for the safe and economic transport and storage of damaged drums.
In the unusual event that a steel drum leaks, possibly due to extreme mechanical loading or impact, temporary solutions may be required. Salvage drums can be such a solution.
Several customized options are available to meet customer requirements, including drums that exceed UN performance specifications.
Bitumen Steel Drum
The bitumen or asphalt steel drum is a light gauge, one-trip drum with a 160-liter/42-gallon capacity and an internal diameter of 500 mm. This type of drum is used for hot filling of asphalt/bitumen that will solidify or create viscosity after cooling.
These externally painted drums are supplied with seamed or expanded lids for which a special hand-closing tool can be provided. Depending on the exact product to be packed, the lid contains a compound or no compound (to prevent vacuum collapse after filling and closing).
Greif can supply galvanized drums upon customer request. Galvanized drums have the advantage of excellent weather resistance, suitable for external storage. In addition, galvanized drums have specific advantages in terms of chemical resistance.
Regular re-conditioning, especially with acid washing, should not be applied to galvanized drums.
