  • Childhood and the Present

    Plastic buckets make me think of their uses today and my childhood and what a totally awesome kid I was just kidding. Everyone has that one item that they cherished as a child. For some, including myself, there may have been a few items, but nonetheless those special toys still hold a warm spot in our hearts back when the world was innocent and unfamiliar. Life was good then no? For me, I had two toys that I loved: my Power Ranger, and my plastic bucket and shovel. That plastic...

  • 3 Plastic Buckets Used in Factories

    Since the introduction of plastic into day-to-day manufacturing, plastic has replaced many other objects that were commonly used in the past. For example, plastic buckets have replaced many other types of containers previously used, such as baskets, metal buckets, and wood crates. A plastic bucket is versatile because it can hold both wet and dry objects, and can also be used to store a variety of products. Most plastic buckets are lighter than containers made from other materials, which makes them ideal for holding heavier materials. Plastic is also easy...

Industry Information

Plastic Buckets

Plastic buckets are round plastic containers. They are designed in many sizes and configurations and can be engineered to varied specifications. Most other kinds of plastic containers share plastic buckets’ ambiguity of purpose; the words “plastic buckets” are not prescriptive of a specific design or function, but descriptive of a general concept.

Plastic buckets generally tend to be portable, round containers of small to medium size that are used for the transportation or storage of a range of materials in small quantities. They tend to be smaller than plastic tubs, though there are exceptions; they also tend to be larger than plastic bottles, though there are exceptions. They can be large enough to transport emulsifier on a commercial or industrial scale, or they can be small enough for making beach sandcastles. The lifespan of some plastic buckets might involve both, given their reusability, light weight and low cost, though this would be more likely if the bucket originally contained consumer products. Most plastic materials’ ease of recyclability makes them attractive materials for container construction because many containers are only needed once for the transportation or delivery of a product. Virtually every industry makes some use of plastic containers, and many of those containers are designed as buckets.

The manufacture of all plastic containers involves either a blow molding or injection molding machine. Many buckets are made out of high-density polyethylene. HDPE is a durable, non-reactive thermoplastic that resists impact and inhospitable climates during transit or storage. In the blow molding process, raw HDPE resin, which in the beginning of the molding process is called stock, is loaded into a hopper. The hopper then directs the stock into a conveyance channel where a large screw forces the stock toward a mold. As the screw turns, the combination of friction and pressure heats the stock. This heating, combined with extra heat provided by heating elements along the channel, heats the stock to the point of liquefication. At this point, the liquefied stock enters a mold cavity and takes its shape. Compressed air is then blown into the cavity, hollowing out the middle of the plastic mold. Once the molding process is finished, the product is allowed to cool and harden. It is then ejected from the mold, cleansed of imperfections (if they are present) and either shipped or sent for additional processing.
