Open top drums
Our open top drums are manufactured to British Standards and some of these meet the requirements of UN Group 1 Solids or UN Group II Liquids.
The lids fit onto a pressed body curl on the top rim and contain a gasket for sealing. A variety of different closing rings are available depending on the best fit for the customer and their processes.
The standard size is 210 litres (often referred to as barrels), but we can supply large open top drums of different capacities ranging from 180 to 225 litres.
We also manufacture intermediate size open top drums in a range of diameters and heights that provide a capacity of 50 to 173 litres. These are also available with reduced bottoms that make interstacking possible.
