Manufacturing Process and Consistent Manufacturing Standards
CValérex 200 drum is made by a unique state-of-the-art manufacturing process where the body of the container is extruded in the form of a tube, ends are injection moulded and joined to the tube by a special welding process to form the drum. The fully automated PLC controlled process guarantees highest quality standards, exact wall thickness and avoids weak areas due to uneven distribution of material common to conventional blow moulding process. Van Leer’s unique manufacturing process results in minimum variation in height, diameter, wall thickness and drum weight.
With U.N. certification across the range and the most stringent process control and quality assurance procedures, Valérex 200 drums offer the performance and reliability to meet your needs.
