Industrial drums, like this 55 Gallon Blue Plastic Open Head Drum, remain one of the most reliable methods for storing and transporting high volumes of material. As a distributor rather than a manufacturer, Pipeline Packaging carries an extensive selection of fiber, steel, and plastic drum products, giving the flexibility to accommodate your particular needs at competitive prices.
As one of many packaging solutions, this Blue Plastic Open Head Drum comes equipped with a lever lock ring. Open head drums are a popular choice for customers who need regular access to stored materials while simultaneously keeping the contents tightly locked inside whether in transport or storage. Lever lock rings are an effective seal without the tediousness of traditional bolt-locking closures. Without the need for outside tools, the lever lock ring feature makes the 80221 a fitting choice for those looking for convenience as well as security.
The 1H2/Y250/S UN rated Blue Plastic Open Head Drum is outfitted with a 2” buttress and 2” NPT. The straight pathway of the 2” buttress offers a strong standard seal that prevents any material leakage. Alongside the buttress thread, the NPT thread uses a tapering effect that compresses against itself, making a tight seal well-suited for chemical fluids, gases, or any other liquid materials.
Beyond fittings, the 55 Gallon Open Head Drum is constructed using blue HDPE plastic. When it comes to high-volume packaging, plastic drums can deliver the same security as steel drum at a lower cost with a longer lifespan and a lighter weight. HDPE remains an incredibly versatile plastic due to its immense tensile strength, resistance to numerous chemicals, protection against impact, and maintaining rigidity at high temperatures. HDPE is also FDA-approved as food-safe.
