Frequently Asked Questions

What makes the Global Drum Funnel "global"?
Fifty-five gallon drums are not the same worldwide. The standard in North America is not the same as it is in Asia. We designed the Ultra-Global Drum Funnel with its unique "locator feet" so that it would fit nearly every 55-gallon drum (or its international equivalent) in the world.

What is the Global Funnel made of?
The Ultra-Global Drum Funnel is made with a low-density polyethylene which provides excellent chemical resistance and will not rust or corrode.


Is there a cover available?
A snap-on cover (p/n 0498) is available for the Global Funnel. There is also a hinged model Ultra-Global Drum Funnel (p/n 0499) for those who prefer a cover that stays attached and won't get lost or misplaced.


Is the Ultra-Global Drum Funnel lockable?
The hinged Global Funnel can be locked with a standard padlock. The snap on cover does not lock to the Funnel. Please keep in mind that locking the Hinged Funnel locks only the cover down to the Funnel, the Funnel can still be lifted off of the drum. If you would like to secure the Funnel to the drum, please contact us for details.


Is the Ultra-Global Drum Funnel covered by a warranty?
The Global Funnel is protected by our 5-year warranty. Find out more here.


Will the Funnel prevent liquids from coming out if the drum gets tipped over?
The Ultra-Global Drum Funnel sits on top of the drum (it does not screw into the bung) so it not liquid tight and will not prevent liquids from coming out of a tipped drum. The Funnel can be used in conjunction with an accessory item such as the Ultra-Vapor Lock to accomplish a liquid tight seal. A specifically modified Funnel is necessary for this type of application. Please contact us for more information.


Will it work with poly drums?
