Small Drums (below 70 litres) Kegs


A keg is a small open top drum that is a suitable container for transporting powders, pastes and semi-solids such as dye stuffs.

We manufacture kegs with eight different diameters and a wide range of heights. These are all made to British Standards with most meeting the requirements for UN Group I or II for solids, whilst some of our kegs are certified for the packaging of UN Group II liquids.

The lids are completely removable and can be supplied with or without a sealing gasket. A variety of different closing rings can be used to secure the lids in place depending on which is the best fit for the customer and their processes.
