7A Type A Steel Drums

7A Type A Skolnik Drums have been tested according to 7A Type A regulations (IP 1, 2 and 3) and are intended for use as shipping and storage containers for permissible radioactive materials. Made of carbon or stainless steel, drums are available in five to 110 gallon capacities. They have also passed rigorous water spray, free drop, penetration and stacking tests. Skolnik can manufacture custom designs in both carbon and 304, 316 and 409 stainless steel. Our in-house test lab can also perform surrogate 7A Type A tests per your specifications.

Skolnik does not, and cannot, certify this packaging as a DOT 7A Type A package. It is the responsibility of the packager/shipper to certify that the package meets all applicable requirements.

Our products are thicker, heavier, and stronger than industry standards require, offer extreme durability, and comply with domestic and international regulations.

Skolnik is a manufacturer with some minimum quantity requirements and a $500 order minimum.
