Overpack drums provide a secure enclosure that makes it safer and easier to handle, transport, or consolidate packages of hazardous materials. Unlike salvage drums, drum overpacks are only designed to handle non-leaking containers. Don’t use poly overpack drums to store or transport free liquids - if an overpack drum is used for leaking packages, the manufacturer, distributor, and shipper can all be held liable by the DOT and other governing bodies, facing fines and sometimes legal action.
Any company that uses hazardous chemicals should have an overpack drum solution that allows them to quickly and safely store and transport used absorbent material, solid hazardous materials, and intact containers of hazardous chemicals in liquid form. These products are good for spill containment and hazardous material cleanup; whether you’re a transportation company, spill cleanup contractor, medical lab, warehouse, manufacturer, or distributor, make sure your overpack drums are high-quality, have a compact footprint when not in use, and won’t let you down when you need them most.
Each Eagle overpack drum offered by Herbert Williams is engineered to stand up to harsh chemicals and is UV resistant. Manufactured from 100% blow-moulded high-density polyethylene (HDPE), they’re rugged, lightweight, and can be used as original shipping containers for biological waste and items destined for the incinerator. All poly drums come with matching yellow screw-on lids, making storage, handling, and transportation of hazardous materials safe and more efficient.
