Fiber and metal drums are versatile in that they are used for many varying applications. For example, these containers can be used to hold items such as water, glue, fertilizer, pesticides, and chemicals.

When shopping for used 55 gallon drums for sale, this is why it is so important to understand what it previously held. Different specifications are used to describe its former contents and you should choose a bottle accordingly.

  1. Unknown – This means the drum(s) had unidentifiable fluid contents prior to resale.
  2. Non-food grade – Typically a label used to describe a drum that held items such as chemical, paints, herbicides pesticide or other hazardous contents not meant for food applications.
  3. PREV-food grade – Previously held contents that were of food grade nature. Please note that this does not necessarily mean the items were safe for human consumption but the contents were of food grade quality. 

Construction Material

  1. Metal - Metal barrels are a strong and reusable option. Along with your business needs, they can be repurposed for outdoor trash cans and DIY projects.
  2. Plastic – Molded HDPE and impact resistant, plastic drums and blue plastic barrels will typically have a closed head and a screw top for filling purposes.
  3. Fiber – Since these shipping barrels for sale are made from a paper type material, they cannot be placed outside, as they are not resistant to the elements. Fiber drums typically have removable and replaced lids.
  4. Wood – Wood drums, such as old wine casks, are held together with metal bands, making them a durable option.
