Construction, farming, pharmaceutical, and motor industries as well as the military all use steel drums. The long shelf life of a steel drum and compatibility for stacking makes storing these containers easy. Durable against extremes of weather, steel drums with lids help keep the product pure from environmental contamination.
Why Use Steel Drums?
Steel is a durable alloy that can be utilized for decades before being recycled. Breweries and dairies use 55-gallon steel drums and barrels because of their strength, stability, ease of filling, and dispensing of liquids. Stack them for storage and shipping for cost-effective space saving.
When exploring packaging for hazardous products that need a high level of containment, closed head steel drums constructed with environmental and product safety in mind are worth considering. For products where steel isn't needed or suitable, take a look at drums made from plastic and fiber.
Liners for Steel Drums
Add select liners to steel drums so they're suitable for storing food, water, or health products that need FDA-approved (for non-cooking food contact) containers. Some liners have anti-static properties that decrease static charges, making the drums appropriate for containing ink, paint, adhesives, and other slightly volatile products.
Choosing Closures for Steel Drums With Lids
Easy lid closures, including bolt and nut rings, lever lock rings, and lug finishes, are available. Select the closure style depending on how frequently contents need to be accessed. Customize drums with drum and barrel accessories, making your drums the best match for your products. Certain accessories, such as faucets, spouts and funnels, make filling drums quick on productions lines, while wrenches are invaluable during closure of steel drums.
