Using a Self Bailer on Containment Sumps to Filter Hydrocarbons

How do you eliminate problems associated with the collection of rainwater in outdoor containment systems and maintain compliance with EPA and Clean Water Act regulations?  Since most outdoor oil storage tank sumps and oil drum spill pallets will inevitably be exposed to local precipitation and storm water runoff from nearby catchment surfaces, it is necessary to make sure you have measures in place to filter out any oil, fuels or other contaminants that could overflow or leak out of these secondary containment systems.  In fact, the Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure Act (SPCC), a set of regulations ‘designed to prevent discharges of oil and oil-related materials from reaching navigable waters and adjoining shorelines’ mandates that industrial and agricultural operators take steps to filter these hydrocarbons before they can leach into the surrounding environment.

According to EPA regulation 40 CFR 264.175, Containment of Containers Containing Free Liquid, a containment system must be designed to operate as follows:

  1. The containment unit must underlie the containers and must be free of cracks or gaps and be sufficiently impervious to contain leaks, spills and accumulated precipitation.
  2. The base of the containment unit must be sloped or designed to drain and remove liquids resulting from leaks, spills or precipitation, unless the containers are elevated or otherwise protected from contact with accumulated liquids.
  3. The containment system must have sufficient capacity to contain 10% of the volume of containers or the volume of the largest container, whichever is greater.

To help eliminate problems associated with the collection of rainwater in outdoor containment sumps, tanks and berms, Interstate Products now offers UltraTech Self Bailers which allow for the passive filtration of hydrocarbons from storm water in outdoor containment products.  This self-bailing filter system is simple to install, can be connected to almost any outdoor containment product, and offers the best protection for non-monitored containment sites.  UltraTech Self Bailers are ideal for use in a variety of applications including: remote oil storage tanks used by farms and agricultural operations, as part of portable truck berm systems and any other outdoor containment areas.  Self Bailers come in a variety of sizes.  The standard size accommodates flow rate of up to 7.5 gallons per hour and larger sizes can handle up to 55 gallons per hour.

By using Self Bailers, modest spills and hydrocarbon “sheens” are captured to provide a clean Stormwater runoff solution.  In the event of larger or more concentrated spills, the filter will activate an auto-shut off mechanism stopping the flow of hazardous liquids or materials.  There is also a manual shutoff valve which can be used to secure all draining operations.  For periodic maintenance the filter cartridge is easy to replace, and the storm water drain should be cleaned through the outflow port.  The UltraTech Self Bailer helps ensure your non-monitored containment sites keep a clean outflow and is an important tool to help you meet or exceed EPA state and federal Stormwater regulations for secondary spill containment.

Interstate Products’ full line of oil drum storage sumps and fuel tank storage products offer the best in hydrocarbon storage, fuel spill containment and oil spill control.  As the authority on industrial and environmental spill control and remediation, IPI experts are here to help our customers source the right secondary containment products for their individual needs.  Contact us toll free at 1-800-474-7294.  To view our full selection of oil containment products please visit: http://store.interstateproducts.com/ultra_self_bailer.htm

Ready T-Bracket Spill Berms measure up to largest spill containment and support requirements

Oil spills and discharges most commonly happen during the oil storage container transfer process, and during fuel and chemical deliveries.  Even though the majority of spills involve less than 100 gallons, most facilities that maintain above-ground storage of more than 1320 gallons of oil are still required to have oil spill plans in place as part of EPA and other regulatory rules.  It is advisable, as part of an oil or chemical spill contingency plan, to have oil spill kits and spill berms at the ready any place where oil is transferred from truck to storage areas and where oil storage drums and containers are housed.  This includes receiving docks, fleet cleaning, decon and maintenance areas, outdoor storage buildings, waste collection areas, oil mixing and processing areas or where oil is routinely pumped from 55 gallon drums.

Spill kits are designed as a countermeasure to help contain and clean up hazardous liquids in the event that a spill occurs; whether it is due to container mishandling or leakage.  For larger fuel storage and chemical storage spill control and containment requirements, spill berms are an integral part of any oil spill mitigation plan.  Interstate Products Inc. (IPI) carries a broad range of portable spill berms, in a variety of sizes and materials to meet any requirement.

IPI has continued expanding our spill containment berm product line with the introduction of increased wall heights and liquid storage capacity on our Ready L-Bracket Berm; which is also now available with “T” shaped bracket supports.  Both IPI’s Rapid Entry and L-Bracket berms can now be manufactured to accommodate up to eighteen inch T brackets for the largest support and containment requirements.  Combo wall berms are ideal for use as secondary containment for tanker trucks, decontamination, fuel and chemical deliveries; and for larger capacity containment areas ranging from thousands of gallons to tens of thousands of gallons.  Our new T-Bracket Berms accommodate larger tankers by offering more containment capacity in a smaller space.

IPI manufactures foam wall berms in a variety of both standard and customized sizes with wall heights ranging from 2 inches up to 12 inches available.  Our new T-Bracket Berm is designed to support higher containment capacity by providing greater wall strength.  Where the standard L-Bracket Berm can hold up to 748 gallons, the new T brackets can hold up to 50 percent more within a smaller overall berm footprint.

The versatile, space saving Ready L-Bracket spill containment berm offers features that make it ideal for spill control. The lightweight supports take up almost no extra space and it folds down to a compact size for easy storage and transport.  This berm is ideal to use in a manufacturing plant for temporary storage of batteries, drums, tanks, maintenance parts and more. The compact size and portability also provides for sturdy spill response at jobsites for leaking tanks, vehicles, equipment and machinery.  Heavy duty supports make our berms even tougher and stronger than the myriad of ‘economy’ berms on the market today.

IPI’s standard Ready L-Bracket Berm is manufactured using 30 mil XR-5® geomembrane, which is made from heavy-duty reinforced fabric that is ideal for the rapid entry of trucks and tankers, providing for containment of most common spills.  Optional berm liners, ground mats and containment pads can be ordered for under the berm protection and placement on rough terrain.

In addition to collapsible, foam wall drive through berms, we can build customized combo wall berms in a variety of wall heights that provide maximum support with T bracket reinforcement on the longer side walls and drive-over foam walls on the entry and exit sides.  Our customer can feel secure with a 7-year warranty on seams and workmanship and 10 years pro-rated on cracking and UV damage. Our berm specialists are available by calling 1-800-474-7294.  For more information visit:  http://store.interstateproducts.com/all_spill_berms-ready.htm

Deadline to Prepare Farm SPCC Plan is November 10th, 2011

The Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure (SPCC) regulatory requirements for farming, ranching and other agricultural operations are outlined in The Environmental Protection Agency’s Federal Code of Regulations 40 CFR 112.  As part of these new rules an SPCC Plan is required by all facilities subject to the regulation and is designed to help prevent any discharge of oil into navigable waters or adjoining shorelines. The main thrust of the SPCC regulation is prevention as opposed to after-the-fact reactive measures commonly described in Oil Spill Contingency Plans.  The regulation states, “facilities that drill, produce, gather, store, use, process, refine, transfer, distribute or consume oil and oil products” must implement a plan that addresses specific measures to minimize the potential for oil discharge into the environment.”  The deadline to prepare and implement a revised SPCC spill control plan is November 10th, 2011.

According to the EPA website, before a facility is subject to the SPCC rule, it must meet three criteria:

  1. it must be non-transportation-related;
  2. it must have an aggregate aboveground storage capacity greater than 1,320 gallons or a completely buried storage capacity greater than 42,000 gallons; and
  3. there must be a reasonable expectation of a discharge into or upon navigable waters of the United States or adjoining shorelines.

Specifically, the SPCC Plan must include a comprehensive description of a facility’s containment and countermeasure strategy to prevent an oil spill from occurring, and procedures to mitigate and clean up any potential oil spill.  Not only must your SPCC Plan outline procedures designed to prevent oil spills; but if a spill occurs, a description of control measures designed to stop spills from leaching into the environment is also necessary.  Finally, the plan must include detailed countermeasures to contain, clean up, and otherwise mitigate the effects of a spill that does impact the environment.  An SPCC Plan must also specify a means of secondary containment that can hold up to 110% of the capacity of the largest single tank or container.  Secondary containment procedures, controls and countermeasures must include tools and structures like oil spill berms, spill pallets, sorbents and drain seals.

Interstate Products, Inc. (IPI), the leading provider of spill containment products and the preferred source for environmental and industrial solutions had created a summary page of resource listings for commercial farmers and industrial agriculture firms whose operations are subject to SPCC rule compliance.  The site presents information on various SPCC plan requirements and links to official information, including specific plan outlines to help our clients meet all applicable rule requirements of 40 CFR 112.6(a)(3).  IPI’s SPCC Farmers resource site offers links to EPA plan overview documents that address eligibility, plan requirements and various products that enable users to come into compliance with the applicable rules.  This includes information on specific spill prevention measures covered facilities should include in an SPCC Plan.

Interstate Products provides an array of standard and customized solutions, including spill containment tanks and berms that enable industry compliance with the tools required to prevent, contain, mitigate and clean up oil, gasoline and other chemical spills.  IPI is recognized as the preferred source for spill containment products and accessories and has developed unique packages of oil spill kits, chemical spill kits and other customizable spill control kits that provide the solutions needed to comply with SPCC rules.  Additional products include complete lines of spill control pads, socks, pillows, spill berms, spill tanks, spill pallets and hazmat products.  Contact us to learn more about industrial spill containment solutions and view our full selection of portable spill kits at:  http://interstateproducts.com/spcc_farmers.html
