Specifications
This UN Rated black 55 gallon open head steel drum includes a rust inhibitor. This steel drum has a black cover with 2" NPT and 3/4" NPT Tri-Sure style plug & flange fittings with EPDM bung gaskets, a sponge rubber gasket and a bolt ring closure. 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. UN specifications include a rating of UN1A2/Y1.6/100 for liquids. This drum 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:
  • These 55 gallon steel drums are ideal for storage and transportation purposes
  • Open head containers (1A2 drums) have a removable cover creating convenient access to the inside of the drum
  • The rust inhibitor prevents the drum from rusting prior to being filled and is not intended to act as a lining

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.

What are open head steel drums used for?
Though they can be used for liquids, open head drums are commonly used for solid and dry materials. They are also a good option for thicker liquids such as oils, syrups and glues. Open head drums are also a good option when the drum’s contents have to be accessed repeatedly. Some of our open head steel drum lids have fittings that allow controlled flow of liquids in those applications.

Our most common size is a 55-gallon capacity. However, we also offer 5-, 10-, 16-, 20- and 30-gallon capacity drums.
Are open head steel drums food grade?
Most of our new lined steel drums are FDA approved for food or pharmaceutical storage. Unlined and reconditioned drums are not FDA approved for food or pharmaceutical storage.
Are open head drums strong?
This open head drum is made of carbon steel making it a strong and durable container for storing and transporting a variety of contents. These drums can often be reused. We also offer UN-rated drums that can safely store certain hazardous materials.
