We stock several selections in 5 gallon containers, both in steel and plastic.  We have heavy duty plastic pails in 5 and 5.5 gallon.  We carry a 5 gallon twist and lock and a 5 gallon UN liquid pail.  We carry solid teartab covers and spouted teartab covers (sold separately) for those pails.  Please note the 5 gallon UN liquid pail and 5 gallon Twist & Lock pail take specific covers as noted below.  Other selections in 5 gallon plastic are kubes, plastic drums, both round and rectangular, and water bottles.  You can click on an individual item for more information such as dimensions, price, and UN rating.  Please note that our plastic pails and drums are food grade with the exception of the black.

Our steel selections include both open head and closed head (tight head) pails and drums.  We also carry a 5 gallon composite pail or drum and a combination packaging Packing Group I drum. You will find a list below of dish covers, rings and lug covers for the 5 gallon open head steel pails, and also listed is a flexspout for the closed head steel pails. The flexspout is sold separately and a flexspout crimping tool, also sold separately, is needed to attach the flexspout to the pails.  Covers are sold separately and, as always, product compatibility is the responsibility of the end user.  Our customer service representatives can help you with your selection of the proper cover to keep the UN rating valid.
