Blue Epoxy/Phenolic Lined Steel Pail (Drum)
We stock a 5 gallon blue tight head, or closed head, steel pail, or drum, with a Rieke opening, which means that you would need to attach a Rieke spout in order to use the drum. Click here for more information on Rieke spouts. This drum is lined with a 2 coat buff/epoxy phenolic lining. This lining has more flexibility than a straight phenolic lining, which tends to crack at dents. It would be suitable for food products, detergents and latex paints, although we strongly recommend testing of your product. It has a UN rating of UN1A1/Y1.8/300. Click here for more information on UN ratings. This pail is 0.5 ga or 24 gauge.

Tight Head Rieke Opening
Our 5 gallon blue steel pail with a buff epoxy phenolic lining is a tight head pail with a Rieke opening. It has a hole covered with a dust cap. Pails are shipped empty, with the dust cap on, so they remain clean. The end user fills the pail and then crimps on a Rieke Flexspout (sold separately). A Rieke Flexspout is a retractable plastic pour spout which offers a reliable and tamper evident seal. When the spout is closed, it has a low profile for ease of stacking. The tamper evident cap has a pull tab for fast removal. Once the Flexspout is crimped on, and before the first use, the cap is pulled off the spout and cannot be reattached. To use the pail, simply pull up the spout, dispense your product and reclose. UN1A1/Y1.8/300
