Pail Closers

Whether for metal containers or plastic ones, pail closers are essential factors within beverage, food and chemical industries. Without pail closing systems and machines, these companies would be forced to pay excessive labor costs. Laborers and workers themselves would have to spend all day manually hammering friction and press-on lids onto pail openings with mallets, ruining their backs and causing repetitive stress to their joints and ligaments.

Pail closers can be either automatic or manual, depending on the scope and speed to which a manufacturing company aspires. Smaller companies with slower or minimum-volume output flows should consider either lever-based on pneumatic closers. Larger companies that deal with hundreds to thousands of product processings a day should go with an automatic machine that can be hooked up into an assembly line.

There are several issues surrounding UN standard lids, which are basically meant for 1H2-20 liter open head pails and capable of enduring packing group II and III levels less than 1.4 gravity and 50 kpa hydrostatic pressure. Some older pail closers are not able to comply with this relatively new standard and will not be able to close UN lids onto the pails properly. If this is a problem, contact a local or web-based manufacturer of UN pail closers and ask for a business recommendation.

Reliable Pail Closers Means a Reliable Product

Whether the ultimate intent is for shipping or storage, any container should be tightly and securely closed. If the containers in question are filled with toxic materials, this fact is essential to factory workers, transporters and consumers alike. If the product is unnecessarily spilled due to repeated poor closure or insecure lid fitting, a company's outflow losses can create a dent in the bottom line.
