FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT Drum Deheaders, Openers, and Tools

What is a drum deheader?

A drum deheader is a specialized tool designed to safely remove a steel drum's top or bottom lid (head). It creates a clean, smooth edge on the opening, eliminating sharp or jagged metal that could cause injuries. Drum deheaders come in two main categories: manual and electric.

How does an electric drum deheader work?

An electric drum deheader is a motorized tool typically guided around the circumference of the drum. As it moves, it cuts the lid (head) and folds the metal inward towards the rim (chime) of the drum. This creates a smooth, finished edge on the opening. Electric deheaders are generally faster and less labor-intensive than manual deheaders.

Can manual deheaders be used on any drum?

Manual deheaders are most commonly designed for steel drums with a thickness of up to 16 gauge. They typically have an adjustable gripping mechanism that allows them to be used by both right-handed and left-handed operators.

What are bung wrenches used for?

Bung wrenches are used to open and close the bungs or plugs on steel drums. Bungs are essentially large screw caps that provide access to the drum's contents. Bung wrenches ensure that the bungs are properly tightened, creating a secure seal. Using the right bung wrench helps prevent leaks and spills.

Are these tools portable?

Yes, portability is an essential feature for many drum-opening tools. Many drum deheaders, including electric models, are designed to be lightweight and easy to carry. This allows for use in various locations around a facility.

Can these tools be used in hazardous environments?

Some drum deheaders and bung wrenches are specifically designed for safe use in hazardous environments. For instance, non-sparking bung wrenches are made from aluminum bronze instead of steel. This eliminates the risk of sparks that could ignite flammable vapors.

What is the difference between manual and electric deheaders?

The primary difference between manual and electric deheaders is how they operate. Manual deheaders are operated by hand, requiring physical effort to cut through the drum lid. Electric deheaders, on the other hand, are motorized and automate the cutting process. This significantly reduces the amount of work required by the user.

Do you offer replacement parts for these tools?

Yes, replacement parts, such as blades for drum deheaders, are available for many drum-opening tools. This extends the tool's life and reduces the overall cost of ownership.

Are these tools suitable for all drum sizes?

While many drum deheaders and bung wrenches are designed for standard 30-gallon and 55-gallon drums, specialized tools are also available for other container types and sizes.

How do I choose the right tool for my needs?

Choosing the right drum opening tool depends on several factors, including:

  • The type of drum you will be working with (steel, plastic, fiber)

  • The size of the drum (30-gallon, 55-gallon, etc.)

  • The thickness of the drum material

  • Whether you need the tool for frequent use (electric may be more efficient) or occasional use (manual may be sufficient)

  • The presence of hazardous materials (spark-resistant tools required)

If you are unsure which tool suits your specific application, it is always best to consult with a professional or tool supplier.
