Specifications
56BM0B is a 10 gallon blue HDPE lab pack open head drum with a metal bolt ring 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 blue color is useful for color-coding products in warehouses or other facilities. A bolt ring is a closure that holds the cover on to the body of the container by encompassing the cover and the top of the container in a groove.

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.

Q & A
Customer Questions
What is a Salvage drum and what is it used for?

A salvage drum is a specialized open head drum designed to contain a smaller vessel (such as smaller drums and pails) that holds hazardous material which has been damaged, is leaking or has spilled. Offered in both steel and plastic versions, salvage drums come with a cover that has either a bolt ring or lever lock closure. All salvage drums are UN rated, which means they are designed to meet the requirements set by the DOT for safe transport of potentially hazardous materials within the primary container. Salvage drums can also be used to temporarily store hazardous material soiled absorbents for later disposal.

What type of Salvage drum do I need for my hazardous materials?

Each salvage drum is tested and rated to meet or exceed UN performance requirements for either Packing Group III, II or I hazardous materials. Additionally, these containers, as well as their cushioning materials, must be compatible with the hazardous material in the primary container.

Are Salvage drums DOT certified?

Yes, salvage drums are regulated by the DOT as containers to be used once product is in transport. The UN rating required for salvage drums to hold potentially hazardous goods is determined by DOT.

What are the differences between Salvage drums and Overpack drums?
Salvage drums are used to contain damaged, compromised or leaking containers that hold hazardous materials. The damaged container is placed inside of the Salvage drum and sealed. They are UN rated which means they're tested to ensure they can safely transport the type of hazardous material they are designed. Although overpack drums can also be UN rated, they are simply a secondary container for intact packaging or damaged non-hazardous materials that offer additional protection to the primary container.
How many times may I use this Salvage drum?
Salvage drums are designed for a single transport.
What size Salvage drum is needed for a 55-gallon drum?
Since the Salvage drum must be larger than the container it’s holding, 55-gallon drums typically need an 85-gallon Salvage drum to ensure the primary drum will fit in the Salvage drum.
