When I tell people about Skolnik and that we produce steel drums, their minds probably drift off to a Caribbean island. However, once I clarify that these steel drums are industrial grade, UN certified containers and not the kind for island rhythm, they probably immediately think of the 55 gallon drum. That’s because the 55 gallon stainless steel drum is the popular kid.

Stainless steel drums come in a variety of shapes, sizes and materials, but the 55 gallon construction is the most ubiquitous. The 55 gallon stainless steel drum is a reliable, secure and durable choice for many different contents and needs. It’s a quality product that Skolnik Industries is proud to offer.

With a range of different steel grades, closures and liners, the Skolnik team can customize your 55 gallon stainless steel drum to fit your specific needs. We’ll ensure your drum is stronger and thicker than the industry standards so you can feel confident that whether you’re storing or shipping, your contents are safe and secure.

These drums are a tough and safe choice for many industries and uses and their ‘cousin’ product, the 55 gallon carbon steel drum is a downright workhorse. It’s no wonder drums of this size are the gestalt image when someone mentions steel drums.

While there are seemingly countless configurations, styles and sizes of steel containers, the 55 gallon stainless steel drum has earned its place at the popular table. However, at Skolnik Industries, we know that the popular choice isn’t always the right choice so our team will work with you to ensure you are using the right container for your contents and needs. Understanding your unique storage and transport needs will help us direct you towards the proper drum for your situation, and proper beats ‘popular’ every time.
