What is the Purpose of a Steel Drum?

A tighthead steel drum is used for storage of liquids that need to be properly contained such as paints, chemicals, or solvents. This product's construction and heavy duty seal allows for low pressure or vacuum transfers of liquid, prevents leakage during transportation, and protects the contents from the outside world. Steel drums can also be grounded via grounding clamps for safe storage of flammable chemicals.

Where Can This Product be Used?

This product can be used in places where different liquids are manufactured such as paint production companies, chemical manufacturing companies, and solvent producing facilities. The mild steel construction provides durable storage. The coated exterior helps to prevent rust and corrosion and allows for quick and easy clean-up. The lacquered interior is chemically safe for many different types of chemicals.

Who Might Use This Product?

Tighthead steel drums might be used by manufacturing facilities that purchase, store, or produce chemicals from small to large scale quantities. They might also be used by companies that store and ship materials such as oil or petrol.
