Pro Barrel 250 Gallons Mil-D-23119-DConstructed with multiple layers of ballistic nylon cord, a rugged rubberized polymer coating, and environmental protective top coat, Pro Barrels have been successfully deployed to some of the harshest environments on the planet. Suitable for use with hydrocarbon fuels (gasoline, diesel, AVGAS, oil, kerosene, etc.), these barrels can be pressure filled to 5 PSI and then collapsed to a fraction of their size for storage and transport.

Pro Barrels consist of a heavy duty fuel resistant laminated construction that is extremely robust. The outer top coat provides an environmental barrier against weather, UV, and abrasion.
