Interstate Products Expands Online Selection of IBC Spill Containment Pallets

Interstate Products, Inc. (IPI), the leading manufacturer of spill containment products and the preferred source for environmental and industrial products now offers a larger selection of intermediate bulk container (IBC) tank storage products to help eliminate the possibility of major spills and provide the best solutions for regulatory compliance.  As a major US and international distributor, IPI offers the most flexible and comprehensive spill protection, secondary containment and storage products from Ultra Tech, Eagle and other leading manufacturers.  In addition to its current line of spill pallets for 2, 4, 6 and 8 drum requirements, the company has also expanded its online offering on IBC spill pallets.

Containment pallets for drums have achieved widespread industry acceptance since their introduction in the late 1980s.  However, in recent years, many companies have chosen to discontinue using drums in favor of Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBCs).  As expected, these companies are now concerned with capturing leaks from tanks caused by rust, corrosion, faulty valves and worn fittings.  To help solve these problems, IPI now offers a larger selection of Ultra IBC Spill Containment Pallet models that are designed to meet these needs and allow for compliance with EPA Container Storage Regulations. 

There is no need to risk worker safety and material waste when you can capture leaks, drips and spills that can easily be contained for recovery.  With IPI’s affordable EPA and SPCC compliant secondary containment pallet solutions for IBC tank storage, industrial users can deploy rugged, large capacity polyethylene tanks that provide excellent chemical resistance and are available in a variety of sizes and configurations for both indoor and outdoor use.  IPI’s secondary spill containment solutions include double stack IBC tank pallets with or without drains, steel pallets, Drum Spill Stations, totes, fluorinated spill decks and eco-friendly spill control pallets from Justrite which are made of up to 100% recycled polyethylene and post-industrial recycled material.

IPI has many types of IBC pallets to choose from including Eagle All-Poly IBC containment units for the storage of single tanks or double tanks.  Eagle containment tubs are manufactured with 100% polyethylene and include a heavy duty polyethylene platform that offers more chemical resistance than steel frame IBC pallets and feature a 400 gallon secondary spill capacity. The extra wide platform shelf accepts IBC units up to 50″ square and can handle a 10,000 pound load capacity.

Reduce Accident and Fire Risk with Flammable Storage Safety Cans

Flammable or combustible liquids are used in almost every industry and place of business.  Gasoline, chemicals, solvents and a variety of other hazardous liquids are found in varying amounts and locations in industrial, commercial and residential settings.  Since many of these liquids are relatively common, it is important to understand the dangers they present and the special storage and handling procedures required to ensure safe usage.  For any hazardous substance, safe handling should always begin by reviewing the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for each product to determine its specific characteristics and the recommended safety practices.  The next step is to ensure that the correct storage container is used for each type of liquid.  Metal gas cans for flammable substances are designed to prevent spillage and accidents, reduce fire risk and offer regulatory compliance while maintaining a safer workplace.

Interstate Products (IPI), a leading provider of spill containment products and the preferred source for environmental and industrial solutions offers a wide variety of flammable storage safety cans from manufacturers, Eagle and Justrite, that offer users both safety and convenience while facilitating the storage and transfer of flammable liquids, ensuring the safety of personnel and the protection of facilities and environment where they are used.  The basic purpose of a safety can is the control of flammable vapors while providing a convenient means of carrying, dispensing and storing up to five gallons of flammable liquid.  Accidents and fire risks can be minimized by using the proper safety equipment. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has published numerous consensus codes and standards intended to minimize the possibility and effects of fire and other risks associated with combustible liquid storage, including specific information on what is required of a safety can in order for it to perform as expected under fire conditions.

The right safety cans serve several critical functions:

  • Safely contain hazardous liquids and control vapors to reduce the risk of fire.
  • Offer compliance with federal OSHA regulations and state and local fire codes.
  • Improve efficiency with ease-of-use features in pouring and filling operations
