Because of their larger-than-standard size, Skolnik 85 Gallon Steel Drums are useful for disposal of hazardous materials or containing 55 gallon steel drums that are either damaged, leaking, non-compliant or in need of additional protection. The 85 Gallon Steel Drum can be used as a Salvage Drum, Overpack or for use in Type A & 7A Steel Drum applications. The drum measures 37" x 26" inches and can weigh up to 80 lbs. when constructed of 16 gauge carbon steel (1.5mm). The interior can be treated with rust-inhibitor or coated with epoxy phenolic linings. Drums can be secured with lever-lock or nut-and-bolt closing rings.
