Benefits of Our High-Volume Solvent and Blends Service

Performance and Productivity

Explore a broad range of high-purity chemicals to support your laboratory, pilot plant, or production environment.

  • Count on our purity standards to reduce the time you spend testing; each batch only requires one test
  • Choose from a variety of drum/container sizes, product grades (e.g., extra dry, ACS, HPLC, or USP), pure chemicals, and blends to meet your requirements
  • Trust in our inert packaging that reduces the risk of interaction/reaction with the chemicals inside the container and helps protect chemicals, solvents, and blends from external environmental factors like moisture and vapors

Reliability and Support

Mitigate supply risk to your business with the value-add elements of our service.

  • Get unbeatable choice and reliable service through our plentiful supply of chemicals and containers and our dedicated shipping fleet
  • Let us help you meet your unique service and accessory needs through our configurable, returnable container (drums/barrels/tote) program
  • Enjoy dedicated technical and logistical support from one of our specialists when participating in the returnable drums and containers program

Providing Peace of Mind

Support a positive, healthy, and safe working environment and help meet your organization’s sustainability goals by taking advantage of our high-volume solvent and blends service.

Safety and Reliability

  • Reduce the risk of solvent/chemical spillage; containers are available for use with various accessories to help ensure you can dispense the product safely and reliably or simply attach the container at the point of use
  • Because containers are made from either stainless steel or plastic, the risk of broken glass in the workplace is minimized
  • The unique drum/container design reduces the risk of flammable or toxic solvent liquids and vapors being released into the air


  • Reduce the amount of glass and cardboard that you need to dispose of by using our drum/barrel service instead of standard glass bottles; almost 200lb./90kg of glass and cardboard are eliminated by each 200L returnable drum/container system used
  • You also use less freight miles per liter of chemical; the drums/container freight miles are less when compared to the miles used for glass bottles and cardboard packaging
  • Empty drums/barrels are cleaned, maintained, and refilled, reducing your hazardous disposal costs, eliminating the rinsing step at your site, and saving you time and money
Providing Peace of Mind

Container Systems

If you are routinely using more than 4 L of solvents and blends, then it might be time to learn more about our returnable drums service.

Returnable drums and containers are an ideal choice for handling larger quantities of high purity solvents and blends. Re-usable, stainless steel drums with a closed system can help reduce the amount of solid waste generated and can prevent the release of flammable or toxic vapors into the air.

Ensure your product purity

  • Returnable drums – protect chemical from external environmental
  • Moisture sensitive – keep solvents and blends with low water content
  • Low interactions with the inert packaging – maintaining product purity

A safer way to manage and work with solvents and blends

  • Returnable drums and containers are made from high quality stainless steel, which means that there is no risk of breakage compared to a glass bottle
  • Flammable or toxic solvent liquids and vapors are not released into the surrounding air about our returnable drums service

Reduce Your Carbon Footprint with Returnable Containers

When handling large quantities of high-purity solvents, choose the correct Solvent Delivery System to enhance safety and reduce your environmental impact. Using this rotational supply chain model, you can get solvents delivered to your laboratory or production facility securely and efficiently in returnable containers, including stainless-steel barrels/drums, intermediate bulk containers (IBC), and container totes.

You can make a substantial environmental impact when you receive bulk solvents in containers:

  • A single 200L (44 gal.) returnable barrel/drum replaces eighty 2.5L or fifty 4L glass bottles, plus the cardboard boxes and packing materials used for shipping
  • The closed returnable container system reduces the release of flammable and toxic vapors into the environment through a unique combination of mechanical and manual controls
  • Using returnable containers also helps increase safety in laboratory and production environments; the bottle-free system reduces glass breakage and the likelihood of chemical spills and the movement of metal containers around the facility reduces glass transportation risks
