Benefits for Using Spill Decks Required for Secondary Containment that Complies with Spill Containment Regulations and Standards
Few companies have the expert knowledge of not only emerging and the most efficient technology but also a current awareness of developing spill containment regulations and standards. When it comes to meeting SPCC, EPA Container Storage Regulations, and UFC Spill Containment Regulations, awareness is key. The benefits for using spill decks are vast as a result of many different models and available options that solve site-specific needs. Youngstown Barrel & Drum Co. has an expert customer service department that can help solve problems related to the need for secondary containment that will result in the safe handling of materials and reduce environmental risk.
One of the key design elements of spill decks is the low profile of only 5 ¾”. This allows for safe and easy access to the materials being stored on them. There are many models and configurations available, along with several options that further enhance the benefits for using spill decks.
- The basic polyethylene rigid spill deck can be used alone or easily assembled as a modular system, with unlimited configurations possible. When creating a modular system, the sump capacity is increased, further meeting spill containment regulations and standards. In addition, the small footprint provides an economical advantage when in use, shipping, or storage.
- Several options are available that solve problems that may be unique to the site-specific needs:
- Ramps make loading of materials not only easier but also safer.
- Bladder Systems are an option that auto deploys upon a catastrophic leak.
- Flexible models are very economical with regard to cost, storage and shipping. Easy to assemble, they can be used alone or connected like the rigid models. The bladder system is available, as are custom sizes and colors.
- In-Line models are available that provide not only the same low profile, but also narrow depth. This allows for the storage of drums in a single row, which can be situated against a wall, thus saving floor space. In addition, multiple decks can be connected as needed.
- Heavy Duty models are available when heavy equipment must be supported. These units support 10,000 pounds per square foot. There are 2 or 4 drum modules available, which can be used alone or connected in order to increase sump capacity. They have the same benefits of the low profile for easy and safe access, and the ramp is also available to enhance this benefit.
- Fluorinated models are available when the chemicals being stored are not compatible with the standard polyethylene.
Youngstown Barrel & Drum Co. will provide expert advice on choosing the best spill decks required for secondary containment, along with spill containment regulations and standards. Be prepared in case of an accidental leak or spill. The seasoned experts in the customer service department are not only caring but also reliable.
