What is a
Spilltainers have been specially designed to allow tank containers to be used for static storage.
Environmental regulations require a provision is made for the containment of a spillage should that occur. The Spilltainer provides the peace of mind that any product escaping from a tank for whatever reason is collected and can be removed in a controlled manner.
The tank container is positioned on top of the Spilltainer and includes easy access to the connection point on the rear of the tank.
The larger capacity (37.000 litre) unit allows 20’ upto 36.500 litre swap body type tanks to be stored on top of Spilltainer. The smaller capacity (24.000 litre) unit is specially designed for limited space applications whereby only a 20’ tank can be stored on the Spilltainer.
For ease of transportation the tank can be positioned inside the Spilltainer and then positioned correctly at the storage location. Other frequently used names for Spilltainers are Spillage Containment Basins, (SCB), Product Containment Units (PCU’s), Spillage box, Spill tray and Spill tank container.
Currently 2 capacities are available in our standard Spilltainer assortment: 24.000 litre and 37.000 litre. Other capacities can be delivered subject to engineering and development.
The Spilltainer is a Flaxfield product. It is designed in close collaboration with the regulatory bodies and has been tested to confirm loading capabilities under Lloyds Register supervision. All units are delivered from the Europoort location having been thoroughly inspected and completed and certified to include the necessary requirements for a product designed for this application.
