Stainless Steel Drums & Industrial Containers – Seamless Construction

Seamless construction ensures there are no crevices within the drum which can trap materials or cause impurities in your product. These drums are easily cleaned because no crevices or material folds exist inside the container.

Our high quality manufacturing ensures a robust, strong drum that can withstand the rigours of years of transport and storage. The 16 gauge construction and 14 gauge top and foot chimes ensures a drum you can use reliably for years.

These sanitary drums can meet your specific process or project requirements with a variety of custom add-ons, liners and finishes.

If you have a unique applications that requires a customized solution, we have the experience to work with you on your project: custom designs, custom finishes (e.g. coatings, polishing, passivation, epoxy, electro-polishing, anodizing, embossing, paint), custom sizing, accessories and additions, testing.

We specialize in producing containers and pallets for use in clean areas, for high purity products, in sanitary environments and for dangerous goods which must be stored or transported including radioactive materials. Our drums are used as well for mixing and in other processing activities in industry: food and beverage, fragrance, cosmetics, chemical, medical.
