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.
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.
