55 Gallon Plastic Drum: Choose between Blue, Black or White. - Free Shipping

The 55-gallon plastic drum is an essential product for both industrial and personal use. Designed to handle a vast array of contents, this container is a quintessential tool for those requiring reliable and durable storage solutions. Made from high-density polyethylene (HDPE), these drums offer unparalleled resistance to impact, ensuring that they can withstand rough handling and transportation without compromising the integrity of the contents.

Blue, black, and white color options provide visual cues for categorizing different materials, though it’s worth noting that while the blue and white drums are FDA approved for food-grade materials, the black drum is not. The blue and white options sold out quickly due to their versatility and compliance with food safety standards, emphasizing their high demand.

Perfect for long-term water storage, these barrels are also UN-DOT certified, meaning they meet all regulations for transport of hazardous and non-hazardous materials. This feature alone makes them invaluable to organizations that require strict adherence to safety guidelines.

The durability of the plastic drum extends to its resistance to environmental factors. It is immune to mold, mildew, and rotting, as well as being impervious to insect infestations. This makes the drum a superior choice for outdoor storage, as it can endure the elements without succumbing to degradation.

The drums are equipped with two bung holes, secured by caps that come in fine and coarse thread options. This design allows for controlled access to the drum's contents and maintains the drum's integrity for secure storage.

    Key Features:
  • Food-grade material for safe storage
  • UN-DOT certified for transport reliability
  • Impact resistant, withstands harsh conditions
  • Resistant to mold, mildew, and insects
  • Includes two bung caps for secure closure
  • Recyclable and environmentally responsible

Additional Product Description:
In a world increasingly focused on sustainability, the 55-gallon plastic drum stands out as a recyclable option that contributes to a circular economy. The seamless construction of the drum means there are no weak points where leaks could develop, ensuring that the contents are always secure. Whether it is used as a rain barrel to collect and conserve water or as a water barrel for long-term storage, the drum's versatility is unmatched.

The lightweight nature of the drum makes it easy to move and transport, yet its strength is such that it does not compromise on capacity or safety. This balance of lightweight design and robust construction is a testament to the advanced manufacturing processes used in the United States.

For those in industries ranging from agriculture to chemical management, the drum's compliance with FDA regulations for food-grade materials offers a reliable solution for storing and transporting consumables.

  so far so good!, By: ,
Nice durable quality product , so far so good! I would recommend filling it with water letting it sit for a few days emptying it out and doing this two or three times. Noticed a mild plastic smell coming out of water that came out of first fill up.
