This 20 litre drum was developed for JCB Service for the company’s aftermarket range of hydraulic and lubricating oils. It is blow moulded in recycled HDPE, which has been sourced from both post-consumer and post-industrial reclaimed material, including a large part from automotive manufacture.

A further environmental benefit is that the container can be re-used for oil and other applications following correct washing and cleansing procedures.

The use of recycled material has not compromised the pack’s performance and it remains fit-for-purpose with a number of valuable practical and user-friendly features. It is lightweight yet robust and fully waterproof, allowing it to be stored outside without additional protection. It incorporates a strong and easily-accessible handle for ease of use, and a drum pump can be screwed directly onto the pack. The 59mm closure, which is available in a range of colours and formats, is supplied by RPC Halstead.
