Drum Handling Equipment and Solutions UK - Fork lift attachments can provide safe and efficient solutions providing they are correctly specified. Low cost belly grab units may be suitable for steel drums whilst rim grip units are available for both steel and plastic drums. De-palletising drums of any design without a fork truck can be carried out safely by using either a straddle or corner de-palletiser. Straddle units allow drums to be removed from anywhere on the pallet, even when it’s against a wall. A major advantage if space is at a premium. Transporting drums was traditionally undertaken with a 2 wheeled trolley requiring the drum to be pulled backwards. This requires excessive force but models are now available that require less than 20kgs of input. Alternatively, drum dollies may suffice but their small castors need excellent surfaces to operate well. Decanting the contents can be undertaken with drum rotators fitted to fork lifts or specially designed pedestrian stackers. If an overhead hoist is available, a suspended rotator may be used. If space is limited compact units are available. Dispensing small quantities over a long period may best be handled by cradles which can be turned safely.Turningdrums ready for lifting and storing horizontally may now be undertaken with simple cradles which can be used with little effort.
