How to Tighten the Oak Rain Barrels

Sep 16th

Oak Rain Barrels – Oak barrels made for wine and whiskey aging are often sold. And also reused as planters, rain barrels and containers for other liquids. These barrels are constructed from strips of oak staves called dry. The rods are arranged in a circle, then wet and formed by heat in a convex barrel shape. Iron or steel bands known as hoops are driven down on the staves. By a hydraulic press to extract the staves with force.

The barrel rings are riveted and are not adjustable. The compression tension of the hoops is based on the level of humidity in the staves. They will loosen if the barrel is left empty and staves are allowed to dry and shrink. The barrel rings can be re-tightened by restoring the hydration of the staves.
