We’re proud to manufacture such a versatile product. While our industrial containers are designed and certified for specific uses, those uses are constantly growing and expanding. For example, the durability and sterility of stainless steel make it a particularly valuable material in sensitive environments such as pharmaceutical, food and beverage handling. These are industries that are constantly evolving, and so the uses for our stainless steel processing containers are evolving with it.

One expanding industry is the CBD market. Stainless steel process containers are favored for consumable products because of their durability, anti-corrosion and ease to thoroughly sanitize. And so, stainless steel is a popular, safe, efficient and reliable material for CBD oil processing equipment.

To be considered food-safe or consumable-safe, containers need to meet stringent hygiene requirements. Stainless steel CBD and hemp oil drums are made top-to-bottom with stainless steel and are also offered in seamless, crevice-free configurations to enable the highest levels of hygiene. Food grade process drums and CBD oil processing equipment prevent contamination during processing and storing.

In the pharmaceutical industry, the most popular stainless steel for process drums are grade 304, 306 and 306L. These drums have the highest resistance to chemical corrosion and oxidization. Type 316 is incredibly heat tolerant and therefore can withstand high-temperature sanitization practices. 

Like all of our drums, our process drums are strong, heavy and, in many cases, reusable due to their ability to be safely sanitized. All of our food and chemical grade stainless steel is easy to clean and disinfect, so our CBD industry partners can sanitize and reuse containers as needed while their businesses grow and evolve. 

Our CBD oil stainless steel process drums are just one of the many solutions Skolnik provides to support the safety of our customers in the pharmaceutical, chemical and food-processing industries.
