Precautions for the use of second-hand plastic barrels

- Sep 13, 2020-

1. The outer cover needs to be tightened by external force (torque can be used to tighten the wrench), the sealing ring must be in close contact with the surface of the barrel mouth after assembly, and the sealing ring is not allowed to be twisted and assembled.

2. If the temperature of the filled product is higher than 40℃, the filling must be tightened and the outer cover and stacking must be carried out when the product temperature is cooled to normal temperature; when stacking, the stacking should be kept flat, the contact area of the upper and lower layers of the stack should be maintained, and the upper and lower layers should be aligned , Displacement stacking is prohibited; this can avoid plastic barrel deformation.

3. If the filling product is prone to produce volatile gas, especially in February, April, and August when the temperature difference effect is obvious, the middle temperature time should be selected for filling, which can avoid the phenomenon of dents.

4. The dangerous goods contained in the company’s plastic drums must not undergo compatible chemical reactions.

5. The weight or specific gravity of the dangerous goods in the plastic drum shall not exceed the weight or specific gravity of the contents that can be carried.

6. Do not use low-hazard plastic drums to pack dangerous goods that require high-category packaging.

7. Do not use plastic drums without vents to transport dangerous goods that will release gas during storage and transportation.

8. The weight or volume of a single piece of dangerous goods contained in the plastic drum shall not exceed the limits of the international rules for the transportation of dangerous goods.

9. It must be ensured that after the dangerous goods are filled, the sealing of the package is firm (the inner packaging of the plastic bag of the plastic drum must be heat-sealed well or tightly tied), and there is no leakage or spillage.

10. When the plastic drum is filled with dangerous goods, it must not corrode or damage the outer surface of the plastic drum, and the appearance is clean.
