FAQ about our Materials Safe Handling

What is a drum funnel?

Pouring from drums isn’t always easy, which is why you need the right material safe handling equipment. A drum funnel can help minimise drips and spills. We provide different types of drum funnels depending on your needs: our Poly Drum Funnel fits any 209-litre, tight-head steel or poly drum so you don’t need to stock different sizes. It even comes in different colours so you can segregate drums for safe, compliant filling. We also provide flexible draining tools which mould easily to create a leak-proof channel. By keeping their shape, they let you drain the very last drop of fluid and save costs. And our Burpless Drum Funnel features a one-handed lockable latching lid which opens and closes easily. The funnel is designed to reduce vapour emissions and prevent splash backs when pouring.

What type of safety cans are available?

Safety cans are an essential component of any storage and material safe handling solution. There are various types of safety cans, each designed for different liquids and applications: Liquid Disposal Cans, Safety Shelf Cans, Steel Oily Waste Cans, Type I Safety Cans or Type II Dispensing Safety Cans. Some cans are constructed from durable powder-coated steel that resists fuels, solves and lubricating fluids, while others are made from high-density poly which resists dents, punctures and chemicals. All our safety cans are designed to help avoid ruptures and explosions when working with flammables.
