STOP SPILLS AT THE SOURCE WITH SPILL CONTAINMENT BERMS
Spill containment berms for tanker trucks, vehicles, large containers, and machinery.
WHAT IS A BERM? What is a berm exactly? A berm is rather like a dam — a structure designed to prevent the escape of a liquid. Businesses deploy these berms to limit or prevent the contamination and damage associated with oil or chemical spills. Solutions are built with highly durable materials that effectively contain spilled substances, protecting public health as well as preserving the local environment. These berms are exceptionally easy to transport, store, clean, reuse and require no assembly.
Oil Spill Containment Barrier Berms are generally used for :
Containment of leaks from machinery, equipment or vehicles.
Containment of spills when working with liquids.
Use when cleaning or repairing parts. For small parts storage.
Under liquids such as paint, reagent and gasoline containers on storage shelves/racks.
Under containers when transporting them.
Use to transport parts, tools or maintenance supplies.
CHOOSING YOUR OIL SPILL PROTECTION
There are a number of different factors to consider when you select the right spill protection for your facility:
What area do you need your spill berm to cover? How much volume of spill containment do you need?
Which substances do you need to contain? Make sure that the berm you choose is rated to handle these substances — for example, is the berm rated for oil or corrosive substances?
Do you need a spill containment berm simply for the loading and offloading of relatively lightweight drums, or do you need a more heavy-duty solution that a vehicle can drive onto and off of?
Do you want a berm that team members can deploy swiftly with minimal prior training? Are your teams comfortable with using a more complex solution?
Onion tanks work a little differently than standard spill berms. They are not designed for direct spill containment and instead operate as soft, self-supporting water receptacles. These tanks are so named because of their bulbous shape and feature roll top, zipper top, and open top designs depending on your needs. Different sizes are available up to 10,000 gallons.
Like the onion tank, pillow tanks are not traditional spill containment berms and are instead intended as flexible fabric water storage tanks. These solutions are built to handle both potable and non-potable water . Pillow tanks represent a more versatile option than onion tanks, as they are available in sizes as small as 100 gallons up to larger 200,000-gallon solutions. And we can also provide custom valve assemblies according to your specific requirements.
With plenty of options out there, it pays to take your time over your decision.
