The advantages of steel drums packaging and shipping
The Industrial Steel Drum Institute (ISDI), formerly known as the Steel Shipping Container Institute, released a new video, aimed at end-user customers in the packaging and shipping industries, that touts the versatility, security, cost-effectiveness and environmental friendliness of steel drums.
The short clip demonstrates how steel drums perform in extreme temperature, humidity and pressure variations, including fire conditions, and highlights the fact that steel drums maintain their structural integrity, which helps prevent leakage.
Properly emptied steel drums can be reconditioned or recycled many times over, making them eminently sustainable. A UN logo embossed on the exterior of steel drums – in addition to standardised construction – lets customers know the container has passed a series of rigorous performance tests, meets international standards and is rated to securely hold certain regulated and hazardous materials.
