Barrels are made from polypropylene (PP) or polyethylene (PE500, PE1000). Barrel shell and cover are equipment with suitable perforation according dimension and kind of goods, which is plating in this barrel. Basic dimension goes from inside dimension of hexagon SW. Length of barrel is selected according customer´s requirement.
