The Secret of the Search: Industrial Steel Drums

Sometimes, okay a lot of the time, Google is a Godsend. However, whether you’re searching for something online or in your garage, it helps to be specific. Otherwise, your search could turn up dry. In the case of searching for steel drums, your search could turn up slightly more musical than expected.

If you’re searching for a good industrial container, be sure to search for an industrial steel drum — not just a steel drum. Industrial steel drums are great containers for for the storage or transport of food, chemicals, hazardous materials, and so much more. Steel drums are great for calypso music.

Steel drums, also known as steel pans, are a musical instrument originating from Trinidad and Tobago.

The more traditional name for the instrument is a steel pan, but since the modern steel pan is made from a reused 55 gallon industrial steel drum, people started referring to them as steel drums. As a result, a mere Google search for steel drums turns up mixed results.

Luckily, if you’re in need of an industrial container, the team at Skolnik Industries can help you find exactly what you’re looking for.

Calling All Customizations

The standard size, gauge and closure options for steel drum containers exist to fill a wide range of containment needs for a wide range of materials. However, our customers’ storage and transportation needs are rarely one-size-fits-all. Even with all of the standard options, it’s common for businesses to require custom drums…and commodity steel drum manufacturers are not up the customization task.

Don’t search high and low looking for a vendor that can create a steel drum container to your precise design specifications – just call Skolnik. We offer a wide inventory of standard steel drum sizes, wider than many other manufacturers. And, when our standard selection doesn’t fit the bill, our in-house engineering team relishes the chance to build a custom steel drum container.

We welcome special requests, so never hesitate to ask us for:

  • Additional or reduced height drums
  • Special interior coatings
  • Custom plug, bung or flange placement
  • A drum-within-a-drum
  • Drums tested to meet non-standard requirements
  • And virtually any other special requirement you might have!

Deeply versed in all aspects of drum manufacturing, our engineers love a good challenge or custom request. Think of the Skolnik team as your own personal steel drum container think-tank, ready to brainstorm, innovate and deliver a drum to meet your precise industrial packaging requirements.
