Wooden barrels function much as they have throughout history, and are used to store or transport liquids such as wine, beer or liquor. They are also used to ferment and age various types of alcohol. A growing practice in this industry, however, is to employ stainless steel 30 gallon barrels in the place of wooden ones. In wine-making in particular, stainless steel offers some distinct advantages.

These advantages include: economic, environmental and impermeability improvement, as well as increased corrosion resistance. In general, plastic and metal 30 gallon barrels have a wider array of applications, most notably in industries such as lawn and garden, food storage and distribution, aviation, emergency and emergency planning, defense and laboratory research.

Plastic 30 gallon barrels are generally made of high density polyethylene, which makes them weather, chemical and dent resistant, and may be treated with coatings like UV inhibitors. These types of barrels offer the advantage of indoor or outdoor usage. In gardening or farming, they may be used for rainwater collection, water storage or in irrigation. Metal 30 gallon barrels are usually made from steel or stainless steel. These barrels may hold many materials and substances, as steel is both corrosion resistant and able to withstand extreme heat.

For this reason, they are ideal for storing volatile chemicals. This may apply in the storage of laboratory chemicals or sensitive liquids used in the creation of defense weaponry. Steel drums may also be used to hold and transport aviation fuel. Such applications often require tools for safe manual handling, such as a drum bung spanner, a tab seal remover, a drum tilting lever or a drum trolley.

Barrels are customizable to fit many needs. For example, plastic 30 gallon barrels may be equipped with wheels. Such barrels are often used in spill kits and salvaging. Plastic barrels may also be made a number of colors, which aids in differentiation and distinction. Additionally, 30 gallon barrels may be ordered with accessories such as covers, recycling lids, steel drums, safety funnels, inspection lights, heaters, measures and gauges.
