What’s the size and weight of the pail or drum?
Will the drum need to be tilted while still on the dolly?
Do you need to heat a steel drum on its dolly?
What type of surface are you moving across?
Need a double drum dolly? Or Spark-Resistant?
Would a dolly that catches incidental spills and drips be helpful?
Dollies are available in a variety of materials:
Stainless steel dollies are a top priority in food and pharmaceutical operations because they are FDA and USDA compliant.
Carbon steel dollies are heavy-duty, welded for maximum strength.
Molded HDPE and polyurethane dollies are corrosion-proof, chemical resistant, and come in a range of sizes and colors for easy visibility in your plant.
Style features you will want to consider:
Material and number of casters
Heat sensitive materials might require a heated dolly
Caster material makes a difference:
Polyolefin is chemical resistant and non-marking. It is generally a lower cost choice
Phenolic is a very hard compound that has excellent load carrying characteristics and is used to move very heavy loads
Steel is also for heavy duty jobs but they are noisy and will mark up a floor
Moldon Rubber are actually cast iron wheels that have rubber molded directly to them. They have the strength of steel but are quiet and have shock absorbing properties
Rubber is ideal for general purposes or light duty applications. They are very quiet and will not mark up floors
