Thirty gallon steel drums can be customized in a number of ways. First, they may be fitted with a number of different lining styles. An unlined interior, for example, can be plain steel or steel sprayed with a rust inhibitor. Internal linings come in a large range, including but not limited to, phenolic coating, epoxy-phenolic coatings and specialty coatings. Not to be confused with linings, 30 gallon steel drums also have liner options, which can be ordered as accompanying accessories.

Round bottom or molded liners are recommended liners for open top steel drums. Round bottom liners are made from clear, low-density polyethylene plastic and shape themselves to the drum, which creates a seal without gathering in the creases. Round bottom liners work very well with drums used for bulk processing and packaging of food, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, adhesives, sealants, coatings, inks, dyes, paints, varnishes, colorants, dairy, concrete and liquid and powdered products.

Molded liners used by 30 gallon steel drums are also made from low-density polyethylene, which can either be ordered in a smooth or accordion style. Smooth liners offer full product recovery, while accordion liners can be adjusted to varying heights. Molded liners have a lip that holds them in place against the drum. These liners are best put to use with drums that need to withstand high stress applications, such as high speed mixing and pumping of viscous materials, as they will not bend or crack.

Steel drums are an advantageous choice for a number of reasons, one of those being that they can withstand extreme heat, between -30°F and 250°F. Along with this, 30 gallon steel drums are resistant to corrosion. These two qualities alone make steel drums ideal for the storage and transportation of chemicals, food, pharmaceuticals, hazardous waste, paints and many other corrosive solids, powders and liquids.
