New Pig Introduces Latching Drum Lid

The PIG Latching Drum easily attaches to new or reconditioned drums, and its FM-approved plugs make it ideal for use with flammable or combustible solids.

TIPTON, PA -- New Pig Corporation has introduced the PIG Latching Drum Lid with FM-Approved Fusible Plugs for converting 55-gallon steel drum into a safe storage container for oil- or solvent- soaked materials. The PIG Latching Drum easily attaches to new or reconditioned drums, and its FM-approved plugs make it ideal for use with flammable or combustible solids.

The only latching lid that satisfies NFPA 30 venting requirements, FM-Approved nylon plugs with Buna-N seals melt to vent pressure and prevent drums from bursting in case of a fire.  A Nitrilegasket and locking mechanism completely seals the Drum Lid to help reduce vapor emissions, and a removable hinge lets workers remove the lid without loosening the band around the drum.  In addition, the Drum Lid’s latching handle easily opens and closes in one single-handed operation so there is no need to remove the Drum ring, lid or bolt to access Drum contents.

The company's 500 + page Pigalog catalog features a wide variety of exclusive and innovative PIG Brand products, including the largest selection of absorbent socks, mats, pillows, pans, and booms in the world. In addition, the expanding product line includes material handling equipment, personal protection apparel, spill response supplies, disposable and pre-moistened wipers, and other workplace safety products.
