Anti-spill and drum retention bucket:


We advise you in choosing the right bucket!

The questions you should ask yourself in order to know which cube is ideal for your case are the following:

  • For what substance will you use the bucket?

The substance stored is the one that determines the material of the bucket, it can be made of steel or plastic. For flammable and polluting substances, such as oils or paints, steel tanks are necessary.

For aggressive chemicals, acids and bases, polyethylene (plastic) or steel retention basins should be used depending on the degree of aggressiveness of these substances, we almost always recommend polyethylene because the cost is much lower compared to stainless steel basins. Polyethylene and steel retention basins are corrosion resistant and therefore necessary to contain aggressive liquids.
