Working in a shop, factory, lab, research facility, warehouse on a construction site or out in the field on a daily basis means that you'll have different types of fuels and chemicals around. There are fuels needed for forklifts, heating, vehicles, generators and other kinds of equipment. It is vitally important to the safe operation of your business to keep fuels stored properly and easily identified. The safe handling of flammables and combustibles requires you provide training and safety rules which include having the proper safety containers on hand

Gasoline, kerosene, diesel and certain combustible oils are the most common fuels used in businesses. To be safe you'll need several different container types and sizes in your business. Our safety cans are made of top quality material by Eagle Manufacturing. Depending upon the the product they are OSHA approved, meet NFPA Code 30 requirements, Ul and ULC listed or FM Approved. See individual products for what standards the product meets.

Container Types

We carry one of the largest selections of safety cans online. Safety cans for fuels, oils, certain chemicals, for cleaning, for use in labs, for disposal, for on benches as well as some unique speciality cans. Our selection of containers are manufactured in various materials such as galvanized steel, poly, stainless steel or coated metal to meet your needs.

Our biggest selling containers come in two types. The simplest distinguishing feature between the two types are the number of openings. Type 1 containers have a single opening used for filling and dispensing the fluids. Type 2 containers have two openings. One for dispensing the fuel and one for refilling the fuel container. See this graphic for our Type 1 can features.

Flammables vs. Combustible Materials

When selecting a safety can you need to know the difference between flammables and combustibles.

The primary difference between a flammable fuel vs. a combustible fuel is the fuel's flashpoint temperature. A flammable or Class 1 liquid has a flashpoint below 100° Fahrenheit (37.8° Celsius). Propane and gasoline as well as isopropyl alchohol are some examples of flammable liquids. Class 2 liquids are the combustibles. Their flashpoint (temperature at which their vapors will ignite) is from 100° to 140° Fahrenheit. Oils, kerosene and grease are examples of class 2 combustible fluids. The BLR website (Business and Legal Resources) has some excellent information on this and a myriad of other safety and business topics.

Color Coded Containers

When working around several different types of fuels and other fluids, it is important to keep them contained and stored so that you will always know which chemicals are in which container. Color coding helps immensely. You'll find additional information as you look at each of our product lines but, in general: Gasoline is stored in Red containers; Diesel is stored in Yellow containers; Kerosene is stored in Blue cans and Oil combustibles are stored in Green containers. See graphic of color coded cans we have available online.

Size and Container Material

Finally, you'll need to know a couple things about compatibility of your fluid with the material the container is constructed of. Size, on the other hand, depends on the type of work environment or work station. Smaller vessels are ideal for the bench type workstation while a 5 gallon container is better in the field or warehouse where you might be refilling or transferring larger quantities of fluid. Here is a quick reference chart on chemical compatibility of containers.

We have a long list of types of safety cans that are available below. Each type has additional information on the product page for that container. If you are have any questions or need additional information please feel free to contact us by email or toll free at (800) 869-9633.
