Secondary containment sumps for your IBC and 55-gallon drums
Nobody likes a spill. But when it happens in an industrial workplace it can be more than just an inconvenience. Chemicals, oils, and contaminants may not only damage your facility and equipment. They can also present health and safety hazards — and even environmental concerns.
Which means preparing for spills isn’t only smart, it’s necessary for Federal law compliance. Including the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) 40 CFR. As well as The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) 29 CFR.
Does your facility have more than 1,320 gallons of above-ground storage? Or, 42,000 gallons of underground storage? If so, regulations state you must have a Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasures (SPCC) plan. And even if your numbers aren’t quite that high, it’s still smart to have a plan in case of a spill.
That’s why it’s absolutely imperative to have spill containment pallets on hand in case of emergency. Luckily, we offer six different types of spill pallets to meet your specific needs.
1. Spill Pallets and Platforms
These traditional pallets will hold one to eight drums. Most have removable non-skid decking grates for convenient clean-up. The polyethylene construction offers excellent corrosive and chemical resistance.
Platforms are available in high and low profile styles. The forkliftable or ramp-friendly designs ensure easy drum loading. Similarly, modular units can connect to handle more drums as needed.
2. Economy Spill Pallets and Basins
Looking for low cost, temporary spill protection with smaller sump capacity?
Our HDPE tote basins are ideal for one-, two-, and four-drum storage.
The flexible PVC models, available with or without grates, come in one- to six-drum sizes.
However, these economy 55 gallon drum basins come without drain plugs. As a result, they may not be suitable for every facility’s long term needs.
3. Outdoor Drum Storage
Our broad selection of covered outdoor models can store up to 20 drums. Choose from pallet building, roll tops, lift tops, and flip-top covered pallets.
Many of our outdoor drum pallet units are lockable. Which means they not only protect against inclement weather, but also unauthorized access.
4. IBC Spill Containment Pallets
We offer standard, modular, and hardtop intermediate bulk container (IBC) containment pallets. Most IBC pallets have forklift pockets to enable easy movement of units.
These EPA-compliant spill control solutions provide up to 400 gallon sump capacity. Removable grates make cleaning a breeze.
Our IBC tote pallets include units for both indoor and outdoor use. So you have plenty of secondary containment options available for your site.
5. Stackable and Drum-Dispensing Workstations
These space-saving workstations allow you to safely store and dispense drums. Made of high density polyethylene, they offer excellent chemical resistance against hazardous materials.
Workstations with covers are suitable for indoor or outdoor use. Whereas our modular system lets you assemble drums in various stackable configurations.
In other words, you can meet SPCC requirements and dispense chemicals with ease.
6. Portable spill control pallets
Meanwhile, not all workplace applications require a permanent spill solution for drums. Which is where portable PVC or polyethylene construction berms come into their own.
These affordable and portable pallets are easy to deploy for quick clean-ups. They are compatible with a wide variety of liquids, flammable fuels, and more.
In other words, they are ideal for temporary use in vehicles, and for emergency use.
Drum and spill deck accessories
All sorted providing your hazmat liquids a safe place to spill into? Here are other OSHA and SPCC compliant accessories to consider for your workplace:
- Drum carts and ramps offer convenient solutions for handling and transporting single drums.
- An absorbent drum topper pad helps catch drips and splashes.
- Likewise, a drum funnel prevents pouring spills into your waste container.
- Use an overpack drum to store leaking containers or soiled sorbent materials.
- Keep an emergency drum leak repair kit on site to patch small cracks and holes.
