Have you been inspired?

Storage Tanks

When drums are not big enough containers to contain your bulk products, it’s time to consider taking one or more storage tanks for your industry. The storage tanks we are talking about now have several premium advantages, such as:

A.      FDA and USDA compliant – making them safe for use with food and agricultural products.
B.      Made of corrosion-resistant low density polyethylene – keeping them durable and rust-free during use.
C.      Reusable and recyclable.
D.      UV resistant – perfect for outdoor storing as well as indoor.
E.       Translucent color – easy viewing of products.
F.       VTS series has flat bottom for easy mounting.

The tanks are designed seamless with ¼” thick wall and NPS bulkhead fitting for discharge. They have 7” diameter cap and fit on 48”x48” pallet. With sizes varying from 80 gallon to 500 gallon, you have rich choices in regards to deciding which storage tank you should take. Let’s go through the complete list of these versatile storage tanks.

-          80 gallon storage tanks
-          120 gallon storage tanks
-          160 gallon storage tanks
-          175 gallon storage tanks
-          190 gallon storage tanks

Step-by-Step to Making a Compost Bin from Plastic Container

Recycling is easy if you know how to do it properly. With the three recycling magic words in mind: Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle, we can start our own recycling program by making a compost bin at home using a big plastic container. Here is how we can create a compost bin.

Get an at least 15 gallon plastic container. The larger the better. Preferably with a lid so that if there is any odor coming out from the process of the organic recycling, you won't have to smell it too much. There's no need to get a brand new container. A used plastic drum will already do the job.

Drill holes all around the container. The purpose of this is so that there will be enough air for the things to decompose. Drill the sides of the container, the bottom and the lid as well.

Throw your kitchen scraps inside the compost bin. They can be of eggshells, vegetable and fruit peels, coffee grounds, garden clippings and teabags. It is important to note, however, that you cut or break these into smaller pieces. This will help it decompose faster.

Maintain the proper moisture level. If the contents are too wet – you recognize it from the bad odor coming out of the compost bin – drop some dry leaves or shredded newspaper into it. This will help them dry out. Otherwise, when the contents are too dry, spray it with some water.

Sift to use the compost. When the compost is ready, you can use the sifted compost directly in your garden. Those in larger bulks can go back to the compost bin to decompose further.

Easy, right? Doing this will not only save your money from buying ready-to-use compost, but it will also clear out the degradable kitchen waste into something useful than just ending up in a landfill.

Why We Have to Use Drum Proportioner

There are a number of reasons why companies should use proportioner when mixing chemical or other liquid concentrates with water is concerned. And here are why.

To get the right proportion of solution

As the name suggests, proportioner’s main function is to balance out the proportion of the solution you are mixing. It delivers correct dilution automatically and avoids proportion mistakes as could possibly happen when mixing coolant by hand. This also means that you’ll save money since you can eliminate the chance of wasting expensive materials when a disproportioned solution is incorrectly created.  

To save time

Proportioner uses less time to mix the chemical and water than by hand. It also functions as dispenser of the mixed solution into any type of container, which again eliminates activities that waste time.

To give safer performance

Face it, accidents are more prone to happen when you mix coolants by hands than by using proportioner. Lessen the chance of getting your employees hurt by simply using this proportioner.

To prevent spills

Proportioner helps prevent spills. It mixes the liquid concentrates with water inside and only dispenses the needed amount of ready-to-use solution when you operate it.

Using a proportioner in your workplace will give you the above advantages. It’s effective, efficient, safe, and definitely an ideal application for wide range of solutions. Use the proportioner to dilute soaps, cleaning agents, disinfectant agents, detergents, sanitizers, acids and caustics, coolants and many other types of chemicals.
