Rolling hoop drums and light metal drums often accumulate in producing enterprises of the beverage and chemical industry. Liquids, granular materials and powder are packed in these drums. The empty drums require a lot of space when they are stored and transported, thus causing high costs. The Strautmann drum press helps to compact different kinds of drums. Due to a special bottom construction, other Strautmann baling presses can reduce the volume of drums by up to 95%.
