Safer Drum Handling with Morse Drum Lifters from Interstate Products

Interstate Products, Inc. (IPI), the leading provider of spill containment products and the preferred source for environmental and industrial solutions offers a wide variety of Morse Drum Lifters that are designed for safer handling of large steel, plastic and fiber containment drums.  IPI’s expanded selection of drum lifter hoist attachment options are designed for material handling safety and are ideal for industrial users who need to easily manipulate sealed drums in any industrial, warehouse or production environment.  When you need to move a closed drum for mixing, pouring or placement into a salvage drum or overpack, Morse drum handling equipment provide an ergonomic solution that allows for repositioning of containment drums for storage, removal and mixing of contents with fewer hazards.

Industrial applications that require lifting, moving and placement of rimmed drums can be accomplished right from a forklift by attaching the appropriate hoist attachment to your monorail, crane or chain block.  Designed to handle any type of 22″ to 23-1/2″ diameter steel, plastic, or fiber drums, our below-the-hook drum lifters feature a saddle and bottom support bar to keep every drum secure and in proper position.  Interstate Products has a variety of drum manipulators to choose from offering features to meet any drum handling requirement:

  • Drums with no upper rim to grip, requiring support under the drum and a secure fit around it
  • Lifting the drum by gripping under the rim, and remote grab and release functions
  • Spark resistant, galvanized and stainless steel drums
  • Models sized for a 30-gallon drum or for an 85-gallon overpack / salvage drum.
  • Lifting a horizontal drum and place it on a cradle or onto a drum roller
  • Drum Slings to lift an upright or horizontal drum and set it down upright or in horizontal position

Whether safe drum handling is required in industrial settings, marine or construction sites, it is important to choose the correct equipment for the job.  IPI offers both expertise and a broad selection of lifters to help you avoid dropping a drum and preventing the associated damage, lost or contaminated product, environmental impact and possible injuries associated with mishandling.  Every Morse Below-Hook Drum Lifter is load tested at the factory as per American National Standard ASME B30.20 and a load test certificate is enclosed with each unit.  IPI’s also offers a wide selection of 55-gallon drum mixers, drum tumblers and drum dumpers that provide an ergonomic drum handling solution that eliminates possible spills and splashing of dangerous contents on workers, decreasing the risk of contamination.
