Drummed Bitumen

Drummed Bitumen has been the most common type of packaging. Qualities of the drums have been improving during these years. Customarily, bitumen has been packaged and exported in a new steel drum. Drum bitumen capacity ranges from 150 Kg to 200 Kg. The most commonly used drum packaging capacity by nearly all bitumen consumers in the globe is 180 Kg. 180 Kg drums are used more widely by bitumen consumers as they are the most beneficial to them. Bitumen importers can save on costs by using 180 Kg drums. The areas of savings are associated but not limited to, drum production cost, handling, and shipping related expenses.

 

Standard size bitumen containers

20 feet or 40 feet Container for Bitumen Drums

20 feet containers are the standard size when it comes to transporting Drum bitumen. They are the most economical container size available in the market today. When it comes to carrying bitumen in 40 feet containers the cost is nearly double that of 20 feet containers. However; the capacity of 40 feet containers is 135 drums, which are only 25 drums more for the bigger sized container. This is not economical in almost every instance, as the Terminal Handling Charge THC of a 40 feet container alone is also higher. More containers equal more work, higher shipping rates and more port charges both the loading port and the discharge port. Drum bitumen clients are advised to use the standard 180 Kg drums to ensure savings on shipping expenses.

Handling

Bulk road tankers to deliver directly on site.
Expensive but swift.

Forklifts, 5-6 drums/mt.
Used Drums can leak. New drums if mishandled may break as well. Damaged drums that do not break will become difficult to decant.

3.5ton Fork lifts can handle 2 x 1mt bags at a time. All bags double slinged and self-stabilizing. Can go straight from container to Melter in one move. Highly efficient handling.

Ground Transport

Expensive Bitumen Tankers – cargo continuously heated.

Standard trailers, can visit remote locations in smaller flat beds as well.
Cheap and affordable.

Standard trailers, can visit remote locations in smaller flat beds as well.
Cheap and affordable.

Wastage

Certain revolving %age will always remain in the vessel, terminal tank and road tanker. A direct loss.

3-5% is always left in the drum and is wasted.

Inner lining is completely consumable. 100% of transported cargo is consumed.

Decanting / Melting

Product is always in liquid state, easy and immediate decanting.

Each drum has to be cut open (often manually). This is an arduous and inefficient task. Messy and often product is left behind in the drum.

Simple. Outer bag is cut away and the inner lining and cargo is melted in one go.

Environmental Impact

Large carbon footprint for entire supply chain as energy is used to keep the cargo heated throughout.

Very Poor as a steel drum has to be produced for just 160 – 180kg of bitumen. A 1000mt project results in 5000+ empty drums to be disposed of. The used drums will have bitumen residue that will inevitably pollute the ground and storage/scrap

Inner lining is 100% consumable and outer lining is 100% recyclable.

Other Points

Expensive, large carbon footprint and huge capital needs to be invested into a distribution chain that should be obsolete by now.

Old drums could cross contaminate the bitumen.
New Drums are expensive.

Triple layered technology and an outer woven polypropylene bag ensures chance of leakage is negated.
