SL Composite drum
SKF 205 L

The SL composite drum 205L combines the high performance of the SL tight head steel drum with the chemical resistance and food suitability of a high quality plastic packaging. The inner container made of high-molecular polyethylene is adapted to the shape of the steel body and complies with the strict specifications of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), as well as the European food safety regulations.

To maintain dimensional stability and the highest cleanliness requirements, the inner container is tightly sealed immediately after manufacture and is only folded in after the steel container has been painted. The intermediate space is additionally hermetically sealed with a round seal, made of EPDM.

A ventilation screw connection is optionally available as pressure compensation. The dimensions comply with the international standard DIN EN 15750. Variants in the sheet thicknesses and the mass of the inner container (3.0, 4.5 and 6.0 kg) adapt the SL combi drum to the highest performance requirements. The handling is optimally adapted to filling, transport, storage and removal.

ReUse and recycling capabilities of our packaging follow the high standards of SL’s modern environmental policy.
