Once the doors are closed, the drums are prevented from unauthorized access and further leaks are prevented.
Spill Containment Pallets
Thor Spill Containment’s pallets also help clean up oil spills. Such pallets feature a design intended to support heavy loads of chemicals including oil, for example. The pallet incorporates a low-rise wall that makes pouring easy and is effective for up to 4 55-gallon drums. Ultratech spill containment pallets are designed to support heavy loads of chemicals. Easily transported, the pallet can be used to store any spilled oil without risking any further leaks from seeping out. Luckily the design allows for the pallets to maintain heavy loads, therefore if the oil spill is larger, you can add more liquid to the drums without risking the sides of the pallet to sag outward and spill the chemical. In addition, the pallets can withstand heavy loads for extended periods of time without the risk of chemicals seeping out.
Spill Decks for Oil Spills
Thor Spill and Containment’s spill decks also offer the option of responding to oil spills. Any oil spills from drums, equipment, or machinery can be contained by the spill decks. Allowing for containment, the spill decks have the option of 1, 2, or 4-drum modules, which can be connected together.
