    4 Benefits of Drum Handling Slings & Risks when handling drums

    4 Benefits of Drum Handling Slings & Risks when handling drums
     

    Four Benefits of drum handling slings:

    1) Better load control via positive drum engagement

    2) Less damage to drums and/or contents

    3) Ability to keep drums to a minimum height during transport

    4) The ease of efficient drum handling.

    Four Risks when handling drums:

    1) Non-positive drum engagement:

    Placing drums on top of forklift tongs or “grappling”  drums under the rim does

    not provide for positive engagement and/or control of the drum.

    2) Handling partially filled drums:

    Fluid can “slosh” back and forth resulting in dynamic loading and loss of load

    control.

    3)  Handling damaged drums:

    Damaged drums do not allow a firm grip between the drum sling tightening band

    and the drum surface.

    4) Transportation of drums:

    Uneven surfaces may cause drums transported by equipment to become unstable

    during transport.
