5 Gallon and 55 Gallon Composite Tight Head Steel Drums – Poly Liners with a Steel Overpack

Why would you need either a 5 gallon or 55 gallon composite drum?  Most likely the main reason would be that your product might not do well in unlined pails or in steel pails that have baked on linings.  Corrosive products would be one example.  A word on baked on linings can be found on this page.  Perhaps you need either an X rated drum or a Y rated drum.  Our 5 gallon drum has a UN designation of UN6HA1/Y1.8/100 and our 55 gallon drum has a UN designation of UN6HA1/X1.6/300.  An explanation of these ratings can be found below:

UN = United Nations

6 = Composite Receptacle

H = Plastic (Inner Container)

A = Steel (Outer Container)

1 = Tight Head Drum

X = May be used for Packing Groups I, II and III

Y – May be used for Packing Groups II and III

1.8 (5 gallon) 1.6 (55 gallon) – Maximum specific gravity the container has been tested to hold for 5 minutes

100 (5 gallon) 300 (55 Gallon) – Maximum hydrostatic pressure the container has been tested to hold for 5 minutes

These drums may also be used for products that are non-hazardous.
