    Do you offer any “kits” or hardware solutions for drum grounding?

    In addition to grounding a 55-gall closed top drum, does the drum funnel need to be bonded as well?

      Hi there, yes, drum funnels should be bonded to the drum. The funnel should also be bonded to the container that is being emptied into the funnel.
