How to build the stainless steel drum part number
  1. Choose the drum part number for the capacity and dimensions you require
  2. Replace the '*' with '4' if 304 grade stainless steel is required or '6' for 316L
  3. At the end of the part number add a 'P' if a pressed neck is required or 'S' for a solid neck
  4. After this add '1.2' for a drum wall thickness of 1.2mm or '1.5' for a thickness of 1.5mm


To order 100 ltr solid neck 316L stainless steel drums, with a 1.5mm wall thickness, the part number would be constructed as follows:

For Drum Lids, simply apply step 2 from the steps above to the Drum Lid code

For Drum Seals replace the '*' with an 'E' for EPDM material, 'S' for Silicone or 'V' for Viton

If you require your Drum to include swages to aid with mechanical handling systems please ask for this when making your enquiry.
