How to move and lift drums with a forklift truck
Efficiency depends on having the right tools for the job and this is certainly true when lifting and moving large numbers of drums. St Clare Engineering has made handling volumes of drums quicker, safer and easier with a range of waist and rim-gripping drum handling attachments for forklift trucks.
Waist Grippers for handling low volume steel 205/210L drums
Waist grippers grab 205/210L steel drums between the two middle rolling rims.
For drums with pronounced rolling rims, a single or double-drum handling option is available.
Waist gripper models DH-1 or DH-2 are suitable for low-volume drum handling.
Rim grippers for all sizes of drum
In contrast to fixed-diameter waist grippers, our rim grippers accommodate drums of various diameters, size and type even damaged drums. The DLR range includes single, double, triple or four-drum handlers, suitable for all steel, open top and tight head drums, plastic L-ring drums and most fibre board drums, offering great flexibility.
‘Egg shape’ mauser drums or heavy 1000kg drums can also be handled with specially developed gripping heads.
Flexible drum handling options
In industry, there is no ‘one size fits all’ solution, so flexibility is important. Our drum handling equipment has interchangeable and adjustable gripping heads. Options include rubber or webbing drum protectors and a quick attach/release system release for safer, faster operating. The complete range can also be manufactured from stainless steel, making it suitable for ATEX Zoned areas or clean room environments.
These high-quality products, designed for specific purposes, quickly become integral to our customers’ efficient drum handling operation.
