Why Use Drum Liners and Pail Liners?

Drum liners are an excellent way to protect your products when you store or transport products and goods inside of drums. Drums come in various capacities (the most popular 30, 45, and 55 gallons) and are made from different materials like steel, plastic, or fiber drums.

Using drum liners with different materials or goods such as chemicals, paint, and food keep drums safe from potential contamination. When you finish transferring the materials from a drum you can dispose of the drum liner. This helps preserve your drums and prevents you from having to wash, clean, or disinfect the drums. Plastic drum liners dramatically increase the lifespan of your drums, which saves money and reduces environmental waste.

Frequently Asked Questions about Drum Liners

What are drum liners?

Drum liners are inserts that are inserted into drums or barrels to protect the inner surface from corrosion, and contamination or to avoid product contamination. They may also be used to prevent product contamination.

What types of drum liners are available?

There are many different types of liners, some of which include flexible liners, rigid liners, anti-static drum liners, and liners that are developed for specific items, such as food goods or chemicals. 

Are drum liners reusable?

This depends on the material and how it will be used. While some liners are meant to be used just once and then thrown away, others, like rigid drum liners can be washed out and used again and again. This is especially true when dealing with potentially hazardous substances.

How do I properly install a drum liner?

Different types of liners require different installation procedures. In most cases, it entails placing the liner into the drum while ensuring that there are no air pockets between the liner and the drum. Drum liners on rolls can help speed up the installation process into the barrel. 

Can drum liners be recycled?

The ability to recycle a liner is directly related to the type of material it is built from. Some plastic liners can be recycled, although recycling may not be an option for liners that have come into contact with potentially harmful substances.

Are there specific liners for different industries?

Yes, liners are frequently constructed for particular industries, such as pharmaceuticals, food processing, or chemical manufacturing, to meet the laws that are specific to such businesses. Drum liners can also be used in more generic settings. For example, they are often used as dust collector bags in sawmills or wood shops. 

What is the difference between drum liners and rigid drum liners?

Traditional drum liners are essentially a stronger form of trash bag that will take the shape of the contents. 

A rigid drum liner is an insert that has harder walls to hold its structure even if it is not in the drum. They are available in smooth-sided and accordion style. The accordion drum liners adjust to the size of the container they are put in because of their expanding walls. We also have rigid drum liners with an anti-static additive for working with fine powders. 

What are the dimensions of a 55 gallon drum liner?

The dimensions of a 55-gallon drum liner can vary depending on how much overlap you want on the outside of the drum. 55-gallon drum liners range in size from 38" x 60" to 38" x 65" depending on how much overlap you require over the top edge of the drum. The extra overlap will give you more material to help tie off the drum liner for disposal.  

What is the difference between Plastic Drum Liners and large trash bags?

Plastic drum liners and large trash bags are both types of plastic bags, but they are designed for different applications and have some key differences.


Plastic drum liners are specifically designed to line the interior of drums, pails, and other containers. They are typically made from heavy-duty plastic material and are available in a variety of sizes and shapes to fit specific containers. Plastic drum liners are used to protect the interior of the container and its contents from contamination or damage, and they can be easily removed and disposed of after use. They may also have features such as tie closures or custom shapes to fit specific containers.


Large trash bags, on the other hand, are designed for general waste disposal and can be used to line trash cans or as stand-alone bags for larger waste items. They are typically made from thinner plastic material than drum liners and are available in a variety of sizes and thicknesses. Large trash bags can be used to collect and dispose of general household or industrial waste, but they are not designed to provide the same level of protection as drum liners.


Additionally, drum liners are typically thicker and more durable than large trash bags to provide added protection.


Overall, both plastic drum liners and large trash bags are useful plastic bag solutions for different applications. It's important to consider the specific needs of your application when choosing between these two options.

How do drum liners impact the environment?

This depends on the type of waste and how it is disposed of. Some liners are produced from materials that are better for the environment in an effort to reduce their overall impact.
