The 26W56S is a new black 55 gallon straight sided open head steel drum with an epoxy-phenolic lining. This steel drum has a black cover with a EPDM rubber gasket and a lever lock ring closure. The lever lock ring holds the cover on to the container with a latch (or toggle) that is pulled from one side to the other and applies torque to the two ring ends in a similar fashion to the bolt ring. No torque wrench is required to confirm proper closure. It meets strict wall thickness requirements, 1.2/0.9/1.2 mm or 18/20/18 gauge (top/body/bottom) ASTM grade carbon steel, and is tested for strength and durability.Key benefits:
- Ideal for storage and transportation purposes
- Open head containers (1A2 drums) have a removable cover creating convenient access to the inside of the drum
- Epoxy-phenolic linings have been designed to provide outstanding chemical resistance in a pH range of 7.0 - 9.0
- Includes a black cover with a EPDM rubber gasket and a lever lock ring closure
- Drums are not UN Rated
Carbon steel (CS) is metal alloy that is made of iron and carbon. It is known as a cost-effective alloying material. There are four types of carbon steel that vary in strength level: low carbon steel, medium carbon steel, high carbon steel, and very high carbon steel. Engine parts, car body panels, and select knives are made of carbon steel. The Cary Company also has carbon steel IBC tanks, filter vessels, and drums that work well with many liquids.
