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.

It's a very nicely made solid quality steel drum. I turned mine into a charcoal kiln so can't speak to its longevity in a more normal use.Published 7 months ago by Stephan D
We purchased this to use as a burn barrel. After driving a few 1/2" holes it has preformed perfectly for the job. After a few burns the paint will burn off.Published 7 months ago by Twigs
Never owned a brand new 55gal drum. I've been missing out. Perfectly clean, and vacuum sealed. Perfect for scalding my pigs.Published 8 months ago by Amazon Customer
