We use these (exclusively) for our Hazardous Waste Satellite accumulation drums. They easily latch down to keep flammable fumes from escaping, yet have nearly full openings for putting in large items like gallon cans and boxes. Ours are used hard. We fill an average of 6 to 10 drums per month, which is a lot of opening and closing, and the lids are usable for 10 to 15 months before we eventually break the hinge. (prior, similar, products lasted a max of 6 months before they were broken). The only negative I have is the shipping packaging. We have received several in damaged condition due to shipping damages (it's obvious that the container was broken when dropped or crushed during shipping). I have contacted PIG, and they have quickly replaced the product, but they really need to improve the cushioning of their package, which I have also discussed with them. Maybe the next one we get will have improved packaging!
I have purchased several of these lately. They are much more sturdier and easier to mount/dismount on a drum than the other traditional latching drum lids. These are of a much more solid construction and can rest on top of a 55 gallon open head drum while being attached. These also have the option of adding a course screen for draining containers or sample jars.
This is not the first of these we've bought. We first bought our first one more than 6 years ago. With hard handling, they last about a year. With gentler handling (but that's hard to get with 3 shifts a day opening and closing, opening and closing them) they last a couple of years. When the welds finally give way and the lid is no longer attached, we place the funnel on drums of non-hazardous waste and continue using them. We also install the screens and use them for "drip drums", where a can of liquids that can't be disposed of in the regular trash can be turned over and drained, eventually allowing for the cans to be disposed of (we can't have any liquids in our trash to the local disposal sight). We then treat or dispose of the collected liquids in a waste stream that allows liquids. I could not do without these things.
