INJECTED AND WELDED BARRELS

THROUGH A SINGLE PROCESS

Itoplas is proud to present its new drums from 20 to 200l, manufactured through plastic injection. Using this process allows for the use of cheaper resins with excellent physical properties, as well improving their resistance to compression, since it is possible to achieve a uniform thickness.

RESISTANT TO IMPACTS AND FALLS

OIL AND AGROCHEMICAL PACKING

The itoBarrel drums are not dented by light walls and any kind of oxidation is avoided, as opposed to traditional metallic drums. In addition, they are designed to transport alimentary and agrochemical products, as well as lubrication oils and chemicals, with the exception of solvents.

A CUSTOMIZABLE PRODUCT

FULL PRODUCTIVE UNIT PROJECT

Itoplas Engineering provides the productive unit to manufacture this drums from 20 to 200l. Itoplas engineers can also customize the drum design and adapt it to any requirements the customer might have. The drums can even be designed with a cap ready for bag-in-box use.

OIL AND AGROCHEMICAL PACKING

This drums are designed to transport alimentary products, agrochemical products, lubrication oils and chemical products - with the exception of solvents -. In the case of hydrocarbons, while they can be used, the used polyolefins must be modified with some resin barrier to avoid migration.

PRODUCTIVE UNIT INSTALLATION

Itoplas Engineering provides the productive unit to manufacture this drums from 20l to 200l. Itoplas engineers customize the drum design and adapt them to the customer requirements. The drums can even be designed with a cap ready for bag-in-box use.

SAVING IN TRANSPORTATION COSTS

Injected-Welded drums weight less than metallic ones, therefore reducing transportation expenses and CO2 emissions.

RESISTANCE TO IMPACTS AND FALLS

These drums are not dented by light falls, as opposed to the metallic ones. If they suffer an impact, the plastic drum reverts to its old shape, unlike a metallic one, which stays dented. The itoBarrel 200l drums have passed every fall tests from 2 to 5m while filled with liquid.

PLASTIC-MADE DRUMS

As a means to achieve a proper resistance to impacts, High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) or polypropylene (PP), both copolymers, can be used indistinctly. Since they're plastic material, any kind of drum oxidation is avoided, as contrary to traditional metallic drums.

MANUFACTURED BY INJECTION

One of the advantages of using the injection process as an alternative to the blowing process is the use of cheaper resins with excellent physical properties, which improve the stress-cracking resistance in comparison to lubricant oils. The injection increases resistance to compresion because it achieves uniform thickness in the drum's manufacturing and a high quality finish in shiny surfaces. From an aesthetically perspective, the drum can be customized with different colors.

ACHIEVED CAPABILITIES OF itoBARREL

  • Stacking up to 5 barrels.
  • Maximum pressure up to 2.1 bar.
  • Resistance to falls up to 2m filled up, 6m empty.
  • Useful for the food market without any additional treatment.
  • Lower weight in front of the metal barrel, thereby reducing the cost of transport and CO2 emissions.
  • Can be customized with different colors.
  • Alternative to injection blow molding:
  • More economical resins (excellent physical properties).
  • Resistance improvement to stress-cracking.
  • Uniform thickness.
  • Will not get a dent to slight falls.
  • It tends to get back to its previous shape.
  • Does not accumulate water at the top when it rains.
