A large pharmaceutical company who were already using our drum trolleys in ATEX designated areas were struggling to find ways to safely de-palletise and transport plastic carboys containing highly concentrated acid.

The answer lay in designing a new head for our straddle de-palletiser which could also be used with the trolleys in other areas covered by DSEAR.  By supplying both the standard and special head, the de-palletiser could be used for carboys plus a wide range of drums. An extended lift on the straddle de-palletiser enabled the carboys to be stored on a spill pallet.

Bespoke equipment can be very expensive but a simple redesign of the lifting head together with the extended lift improved safety, reduced the risk of acid contaminating the environment with little more investment than for standard equipment.
