Salvage drums are oversized drums engineered to safely contain leaking or damaged hazardous materials for storage or transport. Offering more protection than an overpack drum, they must meet UN Rating 1H2/X100/S, DOT 49 CFR 173.3, and pass a 3-PSI pressure test.
Available in blow-moulded high-density polyethylene (HDPE) with UV inhibitors, these durable drums come in high-visibility safety yellow and offer capacities from 30 gallons up to 95 gallons. Salvage drum containment units are lightweight, stackable, and come with metal lid-locking bands for increased security and easy deployment. HDPE is chemical resistant and suitable for dealing with a wide range of hazardous materials, including acids, bases, thinners, biological waste, pesticides, solvents, dry cleaning chemicals, paints, inks, degreasers, dyes, industrial chemicals, and other hazardous chemicals. Poly salvage drums are used to keep your company in compliance with state and federal regulations regarding the storage and transport of hazardous materials when the original packaging has failed.
Eagle salvage equipment has a reputation for solid construction and dependability. Each salvage drum is clearly labelled and comes equipped with a metal band with a bolt closure or lever lock to ensure your salvage drum doesn’t accidentally open in transit or while being moved from one storage area to another.
When using a salvage drum, make sure to properly pack the damaged container to avoid sudden destabilization, as the contents can shift during transport. It’s also important to use absorbent material to reduce or eliminate the presence of free liquid. Along with the included “SALVAGE” label, all drums have to be clearly marked with: the proper shipping name of the hazardous material inside, hazard class labels, and other applicable information as needed.
