Specifications
56BS5K is a 55 gallon black lab pack open head drum with a plastic lever lock closure. This lightweight but durable plastic drum is suited to store both hazardous and non-hazardous materials. HDPE drums are ideal for handling and transporting hazardous materials, storing spill kits, spill containment, biowaste disposal, and shipping. This HDPE drum is also food grade so it can store a wide variety of products. Lab packs are often used with non-damaged bottles, cans, carboys, and 5-gallon pails of non-leaking hazardous materials. The lever lock ring holds the cover on to the container with a latch 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 close. These drums are straight sided, meaning that you cannot stack them inside each other.

Material:

High-Density Polyethylene PlasticHigh density polyethylene (HDPE ) is the most commonly used resin. This economical plastic has good impact resistance, is naturally translucent, flexible and typically used for personal care products such as shampoo bottles. Adding color will give HDPE an opaque look that will result in an increase in weight and rigidness. We have a variety of these rigid and tough high density polyethylene products in stock, from containers, pails, bottles, caps, tubs and jugs. HDPE works well in below freezing temperatures. HDPE heat compatibility varies. Maximum fill temperature is generally around 145°F; however, testing is recommended with your specific product and application.
