When it comes to storing and shipping large quantities, industrial drums remain the premiere choice across a multitude of industries. At Pipeline Packaging, we carry a robust inventory of industrial drums ranging from plastic and fiber to steel drums like this 55-gallon black steel open head drum.
The unique benefits of steel drums allow them to remain a popular choice for many customers. Though plastic drums are well known for their versatility and lightweight, the strength of steel drums gives them the capability to hold denser materials. Their durability also allows them to withstand more abrasive chemicals that can potentially damage and dissolve the walls of plastic drums. With these qualities in mind, products like the 55-gallon black steel open head drum stand out as an ideal solution for hazardous materials.
With a 1A2/Y1.5/150 and 1A2/X400S UN rating comes unlined, making it particularly well-suited for holding heavy oils. However, if you prefer a lined industrial drum, Pipeline Packaging carries a wide array of lining options that include epoxy, phenolic, and rust inhibitor linings.
The 55-gallon black steel drum is fashioned in an open head style. Though tight heads are a common selection, open heads provide allow for easy access to stored materials. There is a matching white lid cover included with the unit which maximizes this accessibility while maintaining a secure closure for storage or shipping purposes.
Made in the USA, the 55-gallon black steel open head drum is equipped with 2” and ¾” poly irradiated gasket fittings. These low-density gaskets are constructed using polyethylene which offers resistance to high temperatures and strong protection against harsh chemicals.
