Oil handling containers

A proper solution for oil handling

Oil handling containers LAOS series
LAOS Series includes a comprehensive assortment of drums and dispensing lids, which are fully interchangeable to meet virtually any specific lubrication requirements. The lids are available in ten different colours, in order to fit with any colour coded identification system in place.

  • Indeed, lubricant handling is one of the basic steps of a good lubrication management program.
  • Proper storage and handling of lubricating oils helps make lubrication tasks easier, safer and cleaner.
  • Lubricating machinery with polluted oil might result in extra costs in maintenance and production downtime.
  • Oil consumption has to be controlled due to its increasing cost and to minimise environmental effects.
  • Health and safety is also improved due to the minimisation of oil spills.


  • The unique ‘O’ ring sealing, twist spout and lid design, keep out rain, dust and other contaminants.
  • Heat and chemical resistant. Containers are rugged and durable as they are manufactured from special HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) material, containing UV stabilisers and anti-static agents.*
  • Drums are see-through and have a measuring scale (in both metric and imperial units) so that lubricant levels are easy to identify and measure without opening the containers, reducing the risk of contamination.
  • Their ergonomic design makes them easy to carry and manipulate in a safe and comfortable way.
  • Drum and lid threads are one size, allowing lid exchange to be a quick procedure, resulting in tight seals and easy assembly.
  • Drums are designed with wide openings to facilitate filling and cleaning processes.
  • The spouts have a quick twist design for easy opening and closing, whilst controlling flow and keeping contamination out.
  • Spout lids are provided with a push button vacuum valve, which helps to speed up and control the pouring of lubricants.

* Contact with strong oxidizing acids (e.g. ozone, hydrogen, peroxide, halogen etc.) should be avoided. Not suitable for fuels or solvents.
Mini spout
Mini spout
Ideal where the reservoirs to be filled have small filling holes. Outlet diameter is approx. 7 mm
(0.28 in.)
Stretch spout
Stretch spout
Ideal for precise pouring tasks and difficult to access points. The 12 mm (0.48 in.) outlet is ideal for viscosities up to ISO VG 220.
Stumpy spout
Stumpy spout
Due to the wide opening of 25 mm (1 in.), ideal for high viscosities and/or when a high flow is required.

Designed with wide necks and a standard thread size. Fits any LAOS lid. Available in 5 different sizes.
Standard pump suitable for viscosities up to ISO VG 460. High flow (approx. 14 strokes per litre/US quart).
High viscosity pump for viscosities up to ISO VG 680. High efficiency with approx. 12 strokes per litre/US quart. As a protection against airborne contaminants during the pumping process, a 10 micron breather is available.
For both pumps an anti-drip long discharge hose of 1,5 m (4.9 ft) and reducer nozzles are available.
Hose extensions
Hose extensions
Designed to extend the reach of the lids. Two different versions available for stumpy and stretch lids. The stretch version‘s length can be adjusted by removing the fitting and cutting it down to the desired size.
