What is Secondary Containment?

Secondary spill containment is the containment of hazardous liquids to prevent pollution of soil and water. Conventional techniques include the use of spill berms to contain oil-filled equipment, fuel tanks, truck washing decks, or any other places or items that may leak hazardous liquids.

Containment for Hazardous Materials Storage Guidelines

In fact, secondary containment is a means of surrounding one or more primary storage containers to collect any hazardous material spillage in the event of loss of integrity or container failure. Hazardous materials must be stored in secondary containers to prevent or minimize the possibility of accidental release as well as to ensure compliance with specific local, state, and federal regulations dealing with chemical storage. Hazardous materials include, but not limited to, chemicals, hazardous waste, and oil-filled equipment. Please refer to the secondary containment flow chart below for assistance in determining if secondary containment is required.

Secondary Containment Berms

When considering secondary containment, Ready’s containment berms are second to none Dare to compare! Additionally, we never use mechanical fasteners such as rivets or ropes when manufacturing spill containment berms. As these parts are not a chemical or weather-resistant way to seal closed the corners of our spill containment berms. Additionally, we also constructed or products with 3″ overlap welds, reinforced corners, sealed reinforced support sleeves. Our support brackets are no more than 18″ on center. To prevent leaks as well as increase durability.
Many of our competitors cut corners and costs by using inferior components such as fabrics, drains, or support systems that won’t hold the liquid load. Our spill containment products are built using only the best Grade “A” fabrics, aircraft-grade aluminum supports. Making our spill berms more durable, more flexible, and longer-lasting. Standard spill berms include drains with Viton gaskets, and heavy-duty aircraft aluminum 6061 T6 supports less than 18″ O/C.

Additionally, to manufacturing spill berms and liner, we fabricate fuel vapor and water bladders. Ready Containment’s products provide both excellent secondary containment and flexible primary containment. We make liners for large and small pits. Our secondary containment products are built to help to protect the environment from pollutant and other toxins. Call us to see how we can help.

Secondary Containment FAQ:

Furthermore, If after reviewing the below information, you have a question that we haven’t answered.  Contact us, and we’ll be happy to help!

Question: How do I determine what size secondary containment to order?

Determine the size and Capacity.

1. Answer: Determine the dimensions of the containment needed based on the amount of liquid that needs secondary containment.

Measure the length and width of the container or equipment
you wish to contain and add  1-2 feet to the berm’s length and width. Allowing for clearance to work or drive into the area.

2. Answer: Determine the capacity of the berm and ensure that this will
contain the total volume of liquid in the container or
equipment. Furthermore, don’t forget to allow for displacement! Allowing for a
110% containment. http://www.epa.gov/oilspill/spcc.htm
