Skidz Posted April 19, 2013 Report Share Posted April 19, 2013 I spoke to a former TC dangerous goods inspector about this thread last weekend. He said he'd read it and perhaps put in his 2 bits. What Bif said is the correct interpretation, but TC knows that everybody does it (refill and transport used drums), and not only in aviation. The logic behind it is that drums when inspected, filled, sealed and labelled by a properly equipped and authorized supplier are supposed to meet certain "crashworthiness" standards if you will. Refilled drums with not enough air will leak, too much air can be an explosion risk, rusty and/or banged-up drums can leak or crack of handled roughly, yada yada yada... 5 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
