TabletSafe Foam Lined Drums

Our TabletSafe foam lined drums have been developed with customers, to mitigate the problem of tablet crush when shipping bulk tablets. The drums are fully lined on the inside with foam inserts. These inserts can be fitted in the drum manufacturing process, or supplied separately, to be fitted during the filling process.
