What Are They?
This product is an outer case that supports the bottom of the primary storage unit. Secondary containment can fully encase the tank or container or be fitted underneath to form a barrier between the container and the ground. Many working in produce and commercial shipping will have experienced these items to protect warehouses and transport vehicles from potential spills and damages.
Why Do You Need Them?
These specially crafted products are designed to capture liquids if the container fails or is damaged, catching every drip and drop that may appear along the way. This coverage means that fluids are captured and held in a container until they can be safely removed rather than escaping the site and causing hazards. Whether water, oil or alcohol, with the right support products in place, you can ensure no leaks or spills will cause trouble.
Bunds must be checked regularly to ensure they are in good working order. Checks should cover potential cracks, chips, or flaws in the system and any signs of seeping around the base. This should be done regularly, with results noted and compared to find deteriorating elements. You may also carry out more extensive checks to ensure no issues with integrity. Any problems associated with the products should be addressed quickly to maintain integrity.
Spill containment bunds are valuable products that can help you contain potential leaks hazards when dealing with liquids.
