A leading forklift attachment specialist has provided a safe and convenient solution to a chemical supplier's waste disposal issue.
Mid Wales-based Contact Attachments has provided Reagent Chemical Services Ltd (www.reagent.co.uk) in Cheshire with a drum rotator, a forklift attachment which ensures the controlled lifting and pouring of the contents of drums with a capacity of up to 210 litres.
The firm turned to Contact Attachments as the previous drum rotators weren't safely able to lift the 200 litre plastic drums it regularly used onsite. As Reagent Chemical Services deals with potentially hazardous material day-to-day, it was essential the equipment was easy to use and durable, and also that it had the ability to ensure controlled and safe pouring for the staff onsite.
Darren Wilson, Operations Director at Reagent Chemical Services explained "We approached Contact Attachments as we were aware the firm provided high quality products at a reasonable price. The service was excellent, the after sales support was second-to-none, and we'd definitely use them for future material handling issues".
Lewis Selby, Technical Sales Consultant at Contact Attachment, added: "We were delighted to be able to assist Reagent Chemical Services with their drum issue, and provide a convenient solution. There are many common challenges that firms face when handling drums, from lifting and moving heavy drums, loading and unloading, controlled pouring, and manipulating them onto shelves and racking - these drum handling issues are made all the more challenging when the contents could be hazardous"
"Our drum rotators have been designed to enable users to operate at both head height and above-head height, via crank handles or loop chains, all of which are connected to high quality gearbox, to help eliminate over-pouring or spillages, which ultimately reduces the risk of costly damages and injury to workers"
