This is a un rated black 55 gallon open head steel drum that includes an epoxy-phenolic lining on the inside. The drum includes a steel cover complete with three fittings: two 2" NPT and one 3/4" NPT Tri-Sure style plugs & flanges for pouring and dispensing. The drum's cover also includes a sponge gasket as well as a Solid Seal™ bolt ring closure. The 55 gallon steel drum is UN Rated UN1A2/Y1.6/150 for liquids. 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. 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.

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.
