Drums - loading and unloading spill bunds

Posted

Our Counterbalance Drum Depalletiser with tall-lift can take drums on and off bunds safely and easily.

What are spill bunds?

Drum bunds are a form of secondary containment used for storing liquids on; should a drum or other container be spilled or develop a leak, harmful chemicals are not able to escape the bund and cause environmental damage.
