Fuel Tank Secondary Containment Berm
Using a Spill Berm for Fuel Containment
Question: I am looking for a fuel tank secondary containment berm. I see that you have several berms, but can they be used for fuel? Specifically, what kind of fuel can they store? Can one spill berm store more fuel than another berm? How much fuelcontainment do I need for my berms?
Answer: Thank you for contacting us! As a general overview, a majority of our spill containment berms can be used for the storage of fuel, oil, chemicals, water, and other related materials. All of our berms are constructed from several different fabrics, often chosen based specifically off of the type of liquid you are trying to store.
Depending on what type of fuel you are looking to store and the type of storage you are looking to achieve, different berms may work better than others for your particular location. What we do typically require our customers to provide is an MSDS (material safety data sheet). When you are looking to store a fuel or chemical, these MSDS's can help us make sure the berm is equipped to store your liquid.
Fuel Tank Secondary Containment Berm Options
To view our fuel storage tank berm options, please check out the list below and see if any of these styles sound like something that could work for your location.
- Aluminum Angle Berms: Perfect for tank containment, these berms feature rigid aluminum angle walls that can form tight and secure containment walls around your tanks.
- Foam Wall Berms: These berms are ideal for locations looking for tank transportation either by forklift or truck.
- Combination Berms: These berms combine aluminum angle and foam wall berms. The side walls keep the rigid aluminum angle height, while the end walls have self-rising foam. When a spill happens, the foam end walls will automatically rise with the liquid.
Spill Berm Fabric Compatibility
Fabrics used for these berms have included polyethylene, urethane, rubber, HDPE, LLDPE, and more. They are compatible with many types of fuel and other contaminants.
