This is a milestone decision for the drum reconditioning industry.  Reusable Industrial Packaging Association (RIPA) has worked closely with DOT to ensure the ultrasound technology meets and exceeds leak detection standards by DOT.  Ultimately, there can be no leaks in the steel and plastic drums.  “We waited 6 years for this, and we are thrilled we had the chance to move the process along,” says Peter DeWitt, vice president of DeWitt Barrels.

“CTRL Systems is a custom solutions provider; and we are excited to help other drum reconditioning companies like DeWitt Barrel,” says Bob Roche, CEO of CTRL Systems.  “Other drum reconditioning companies can procure the test apparatus from Adria Machine and take advantage of our exclusive relationship.”

All steel and plastic drum reconditioning companies must seek their own approval as required by DOT.  “We are happy to share our experience with others seeking an approval,” says DeWitt.  “We see this as an enhancement of safety and an extension of a proven technology.  DeWitt Barrels is immensely proud of its safety and environmental record, and we hope to see similar modernization approved for other RIPA members.”
