announces the innovative Tite-Seal Brand S-Insertion of Octagon
Base flanges. This new method of inserting flanges into drums provides
the most secure closure available on the market today.
Technocraft Industries, with
almost 30 years'experience producing drum closures, is a world leader
in the drum closure industry. Through its advanced R&D efforts,
the company has developed the new S-insertion method of installing
flanges into steel drums.
The S-insertion method starts
with the standard process of punching and forming the pocket for
the flange and then installing it into the drum. The patented advancement
that the S-insertion provides is the crimping of the pocket around
the flange. This crimping operation pushes the metal at the bottom
of the pocket under the flange, thus locking the flange into the
With normal insertions, in
drop tests where the head of the drum falls flat on the ground,
the flange is pushed out of the pocket. Leakage of the closures
results. With our new S-Insertion method, perpendicular flat drop
tests do not result in flanges jarred from the pocket.
