Specifications
The 26WG55 is a new UN Rated (UN1A1/X1.8/300) 55 gallon black tight head carbon steel drum with a white top and a rust inhibitor enamel. The 18/22/18 gauge (top/body/bottom) carbon steel is tested for durability. This tight head steel drum has 2" NPT & 3/4" NPT nylon fittings and is ideal for storing and transporting gasoline or diesel. The nylon plugs melt as temperatures rise, which relives container pressure and helps prevent explosions. The plugs are made from highly impact resistant nylon resin for durability and protection. Diesel is a flammable liquid so proper storage is essential for personnel safety. Movement during transportation increases the risk for chemical reactions like explosions, which makes this steel drum with nylon plugs the perfect storage solution for such liquids.

Key benefits:
  • Ideal for storing and transporting gasoline and diesel
  • Tight head containers have a non-removable top
  • 100% HDPE
  • Rust inhibitor enamel prevents drum from rusting prior to being filled, not intended to act as a lining
  • Nylon plugs melt with raising temperatures, preventing the drum from exploding from within
  • Melt range 490°F (254°C)
  • Nylon plugs meet DOT/UN Performance Standards Groups I, II, and III
  • Factory Mutual certified for National Fire Code- NFPA 30
Rust Inhibitor Enamel
Rust inhibitor enamel is not intended to act as a lining. This enamel does not add protection but instead prevents rusting prior to filling by slowing the oxidation process. This enamel is manufactured with FDA-compliant raw materials.

Material:

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.
