How do secondary spill containment systems work?

If you have liquid storage drums on your industrial site you need to make sure you are adequately prepared in case of a spill, you thus need secondary spill containment. This particular type of equipment ensures that the spill is contained in a certain area.

If a spilling occurs it can cause many hazardous problems, not just to workers but also to the environment.

How does secondary spill containment work?

• Spill containment units are made in pallet sizes which have reservoirs under them which catch the spills. If you are storing liquids, you can thus place them on to these pallets so that the spill is absorbed.

• You can then make use of ramps which are positioned besides the pallet to access the liquid drum when needed. This makes the loading and unloading of large and bulky drums easier. In this way the chances of spills while loading or unloading are reduced considerably.

• You can purchase lots of different types of secondary spill containment devices and use them accordingly. They are made in such a way that they can stand by themselves or even beside other pallets making a neat storage system.

When you are looking to buy secondary spill containment devices have a look at the many options before settling on the one for your industrial use.
