The Eagle yellow blow-molded HDPE lab pack drum comes with a screw-on lid, has a 20-gallon capacity, and can be used to store, transport, and dispose of small, intact containers of hazardous materials and help contain spills. The drum is made of yellow HDPE (high-density polyethylene), which weighs less than steel, is resistant to dents, punctures, and certain chemicals, and may be incinerated. The drum is blow-molded for wall strength and thinness. Ultraviolet (UV) inhibitors minimize fading and discoloring. Full drums can be stacked up to three high. The drum has a storage capacity of 20 gallons, weighs 13 lb., and measures approximately 20-3/4″ high and 20-1/2″ in diameter. It is suitable for holding containers with a capacity of 5 gallons or less.

Hazardous storage drums are used to safely store, transport, and dispose of hazardous materials. They are typically made of polyethylene or steel. Open-head drums have a removable lid and can store hazardous solids or liquids. Closed-head drums have a fixed top, can store hazardous liquids, and have bung holes for filling and pouring. Salvage drums, also known as overpack drums and recovery drums, can be used to store and transport smaller containers that hold hazardous materials and that are damaged or leaking. Certain drums may be incinerated along with the waste itself. Hazardous storage drums may meet U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and other federal regulations and United Nations (UN) guidelines regarding the storage and shipment of hazardous materials. Hazardous storage drums are often assigned a UN code to indicate the container type, performance level, specific gravity, hydrostatic test pressure, and other information. Hazardous storage drums are used in a variety of industries involved with manufacturing, shipping, and environmental services.
