Product Description

The SKOLNIK carbon steel open-head drum comes with a removable cover and a bolt ring, has a 55-gallon capacity, and can be used to store and transport hazardous solids or liquids. The drum and the cover are made of carbon steel, which is resistant to impacts and wear. An interior epoxy phenolic coating helps resist rust and certain chemicals. The bolt ring can be used to secure the lid to the drum. A gasket helps prevent leaks and is made of EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer) rubber, which is resistant to heat, water, and wear. The drum has a storage capacity of 55 gallons, weighs 48 lb., and measures 33" high and 22-1/2" in diameter. The wall of the drum is 1.2 mm thick.

This product meets ASTM International criteria for carbon steel. It has United Nations (UN) specification markings of 1A2/X435/S for solids and 1A2/Y1.5/150 for liquids. (1A2 is the packaging code for a steel open-head drum; X435 indicates that the product has met tests for Packing Groups I, II, and III at a maximum gross mass of 435 kg; S is a designation for solids; and Y1.5/150 indicates that the product has met tests for Packing Groups II and III at a specific gravity of 1.5 and a hydrostatic test pressure of 150.)

Hazardous storage drums are used to safely store, transport, and dispose of hazardous materials. They are typically made of polyethylene or steel. Open-head drums have a removable lid and can store hazardous solids or liquids. Closed-head drums have a fixed top, can store hazardous liquids, and have bung holes for filling and pouring. Salvage drums, also known as overpack drums and recovery drums, can be used to store and transport smaller containers that hold hazardous materials and that are damaged or leaking. Certain drums may be incinerated along with the waste itself. Hazardous storage drums may meet U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and other federal regulations and United Nations (UN) guidelines regarding the storage and shipment of hazardous materials. Hazardous storage drums are often assigned a UN code to indicate the container type, performance level, specific gravity, hydrostatic test pressure, and other information. Hazardous storage drums are used in a variety of industries involved with manufacturing, shipping, and environmental services.

Skolnik Industries manufactures salvage drums, stainless-steel drums, carbon steel drums, wine barrels, and other industrial containers. The company, founded in 1985, is headquartered in Chicago, IL.

Needed drum to use as a burn barrel. Metal is thick enough to withstand fire. Have been using it now to burn brush & has worked wonderfully. Will continue to use it for this purpose for a very long time. Thank you.

Purchased for use in Hazwoper training, so this drum works fine for that. The shipper did not include the DOT-required closure instructions, not a big deal for us because we are not shipping hazardous materials in it. However, if you purchase it for shipping hazardous materials, you'll need to get the closure instructions either from the seller or from the Skolnik website. Even if you know how to close the drum, per DOT regs, you must have a copy of the instructions for at least 90 days after you ship it, if it contains hazmat.

Good thickness for a burn barrel / BBQ grill. Just in time for fall. Came in cardboard packaging but mine was dented in two places. Still functional for my purposes.

Great value and quality. We use it to burn sticks and leaves during our spring cleaning. The cover has a rubber rim so we don't use it to cover our burning ashes.

These barrels are strong and well worth it for the price! I would certainly recommend it for anyone shipping or needing a barrel for storage.

Very low quality. Started to rust on the inside within 3 days of arrival at my warehouse (I bought two of them, happened to both). Unless you want all the contents contaminated with rust, look elsewhere.
