Fuel Tank Containment
Secondary Containment for a Fuel or Diesel tank
Secondary Containment for Fuel Tanks is typically a requirement for any location that is storing, transferring or handling fuel. Used under steel tanks, pillow tanks, and other fuel storage units, these products are designed to temporarily hold fuel in the event of a leak or spill. Due to the nature of these materials, containment products are designed with robust materials that are equipped to handle various chemicals, fuels and hazardous materials.
Secondary Containment Requirements
Due to the hazardous nature of oil products (such as diesel fuel, gasoline or oil), storage and containment of these products is regulated by the EPA and SPCC (Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure) standards. These rules require containment of hazardous materials so that they do not contaminated surrounding areas or waterways. Some of the most common secondary containment requirements can be found on the site below:
