Steel Drums or Barrels- Open Head and Closed (Tight) Head

We stock steel drums in sizes from 5 to 55 gallons.  Some customers refer to drums as barrels.  Drums, or barrels, where the top comes completely off are referred to as open head drums.  Normally the top is secured to the body of the drum with a bolt ring or a lever lock ring.  The drum in the picture to the right has a bolt ring. Drums, or barrels, where the top cannot be removed are referred to as closed head or tight head drums.  These tight head drums have bungs or fittings in the cover as they are meant for liquids.  Some of our drums are lined and some are unlined.  A brief description can be found under each drum.  All the drums on this page have a UN designation.
