Drum Liners for Steel Drums

Drum liners are an essential component for many industrial applications that require the transportation or storage of liquid or powdered materials. When it comes to steel drums, drum liners are particularly important to ensure that the contents of the drum remain pure and uncontaminated. In this article, we'll take a closer look at drum liners for  steel drums and explore some of the key considerations to keep in mind when selecting the right liner for your needs.

Material Options

When it comes to drum liners for steel drums, there are several material options available, each with its own unique properties and benefits. Here are a few of the most common options:

1. Polyethylene (PE): PE drum liners are a popular choice for their high durability and resistance to punctures, tears, and leaks. They are also relatively inexpensive, making them a cost-effective option for many applications.

2. Polypropylene (PP): PP drum liners are similar to PE liners in terms of durability and resistance to leaks, but they offer some additional benefits such as increased chemical resistance and higher temperature tolerance.

3. Nylon: Nylon drum liners are known for their high strength and puncture resistance, making them a good choice for applications that require extra protection against damage.

4. EVOH: EVOH (ethylene-vinyl alcohol) drum liners are a newer option that offer excellent barrier properties to prevent the permeation of gases and odors. They are often used for applications that require high levels of purity and cleanliness.

The material of our drum liner is composed of 9 layers of composite material:



There are three types:

A closed liner of a closed drum


The closed liner of an open drum


The opening liner of an open drum



When selecting a drum liner for a steel drum, it's important to ensure that the liner is compatible with the specific material being stored or transported. For example, certain materials may react with certain types of plastic liners, leading to contamination or degradation of the material. Be sure to carefully review the compatibility information provided by the liner manufacturer and consult with a materials expert if needed. Employing a high-quality drum seal cap can provide an additional layer of protection, safeguarding against potential contamination or degradation, ensuring that the stored or transported materials stay safe and secure.

Size and Fit

Another important consideration when selecting a drum liner for a  steel drum is the size and fit of the liner, which is important in avoiding leakage just like the drum cap sealer. The liner should fit snugly inside the drum to prevent any movement or shifting during transportation, which could lead to damage or leaks. Be sure to measure the inside dimensions of the drum carefully and select a liner that is the appropriate size and shape.

Drum liners for steel drums are an important component for many industrial applications that require the transportation or storage of liquid or powdered materials. When selecting a drum liner, it's important to consider factors such as material compatibility, size and fit, and the specific application requirements. With the right drum liner in place, you can ensure that your materials remain pure and uncontaminated throughout their lifecycle.
