Made from 16 gauge, 304 stainless steel, our UN Rated 55 gallon tight head stainless steel drums (closed head) 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 tight head stainless steel drums feature 2" & 3/4" Tri-Sure stainless steel fittings.
- Most common grade of stainless steel and is widely used for many applications
- Contains approximately 18% chromium and 8% nickel
- Also known as closed head drums
- Corrosion resistance
- Tensile strength
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.
