Grease transport, disposal
GOLD (Grease One-Way Logistics and Distribution) system features a protective container that holds up to 1,800 pounds of grease — the equivalent of nearly five typical grease drums — and prevents contaminants, such as air and water, from entering the container. Placed on top of a transport pallet and stacking frame, the multi-layered flexible container functions much like a tube of toothpaste, gradually collapsing as grease is discharged through the automated dispensing unit. When the grease reservoir within the bag is used, the disposable container can easily be discarded, eliminating the cost and effort of dealing with returnable drums or totes.
