POY Finalist: Latching lid
Finalist in Fluid Handling in Plant Engineering’s 2011 Product of the Year competition
The PIG Latching Lid for Poly Drums has been designed specifically to fit open-head poly drums. This lid opens and closes easily with one hand—no need to remove and reattach the drum ring, lid, or bolt to access drum contents. The lid also features a 3-in.-wide EVA gasket and locking mechanism that not only completely seals the lid to help keep drum contents dry and pure, but also helps prevent vapor emissions.
Two sets of interchangeable drum spacers and extra wide-wide gasket design allow the lid to fit the five most common poly drum designs.
