Steel Drums

Steel drums provide a durable and economical solution for storing a variety of materials, including flammable and combustible substances. The standard drum size is 55 gallons for the U.S., though the capacity can range based on the manufacturer. Steel drums have a ribbed exterior wall and a sealable and weldable lid to prevent spills and leaks. Radioactive substances and other hazardous or highly regulated materials typically require steel drums that meet certain specifications for material and thickness in relation to capacity.
