Made from 304 stainless steel, our UN Rated open head 5 gallon stainless steel drums are an ideal solution for products requiring drum purity and compatibility of materials, depending on their composition. Due to unique properties, these drums can outperform carbon steel drums in terms of corrosion resistance, tensile strength and reusability. These drums include an EPDM rubber gasket with a bolt ring closure. A bolt ring is a closure ring that holds the cover on to the body of the container by encompassing the cover and the top of the container in a groove. This ring is then tightened by a bolt that pulls the ends of the rings together. A calibrated torque wrench is used to confirm proper closure.

- Contains approximately 18% chromium and 8% nickel
- UN Rated
- Can be used as a Salvage Drum
- Bolt ring closure
Stainless steel 304 (SS304) has excellent corrosion resistance and weldability. SS304 has an oxidation resistance of 1600°F for intermittent service and 1690°F for continuous service. We have a collection of stainless steel 304 drums, power drill mixers, and filter vessels. Stainless steel 304 products, such as pans and cooking tools are common household products that people use on a daily basis.
