Many discussions about reconditioning emphasize that the best use of an industrial container is its reuse. Organizations of manufacturers of reconditioned and new steel, plastic, and fiber drums, as well as intermediate bulk containers, work hard on their members’ compliance to the myriad rules governing the recycling process. Manufacturers of new industrial packaging and their North American suppliers do the same while emphasizing the importance of safety and reliability.
In drum reconditioning, empty, used drums are cleaned, re-shaped, assembled with the appropriate lid, drum ring and/or fittings, painted and recoated where needed. The method through which a drum is cleaned and reconditioned depends upon the drum’s prior contents and its construction.
All steel drums must have the heads removed prior to reconditioning. Steel drums that contained paints and related items are burned in drum furnaces at high heats, while open head steel drums which previously housed solvents and similar items are washed with high-pressure alkaline-based solutions and steam. After cleaning, steel drums are straightened, reshaped and blasted with steel shot before painting, recoating and assembling with the appropriate drum lid, drum ring and/or drum fitting.
Poly Drums are reconditioned with alternating submersion and high-pressure alkaline solutions, while fiber drums are usually cleaned with air, high-pressure steam and/or alkaline rinses and then visually inspected before reassembly. Visual inspection and leak testing to satisfy DOT and UN regulations are part of the final reconditioning process of all steel and poly drums
