Drum handling


A cable is a valuable product usually transported on drums. The flanges on the drum seem thick enough to remain unbroken. But, with a cable that might weigh more than four tons, careless handling can easily damage the drum. The drum must protect the cable from damages during transport. If the drum is damaged, the cable can also be damaged. The damage might not be discovered until after installation, when repairs can be extremely expensive. The purpose of below documents is to tell you how damages can be minimized by correct drum handling and transport.
