Secondary Containment Systems: Fuel Pad Containment
Secondary Fuel Containment System: The Containment Pad™
The Containment Pad is a heavy duty, drive-on collector system designed to contain incidental spills of hazardous liquids and fuels. Because it is surface-mounted it will not crack like concrete systems. This fuel pad containment system is designed to stand alone or it can be coupled with additional Containment Pads to form larger configurations for an entire secondary fuel containment system. When you need truck containment you can count on, look no further than the Polystar Containment Pad.
Each of our steel containment pad units is encapsulated in corrosion resistant fiberglass that is constructed from a 1/4" thick steel plate coated in a nominal 1/16" fiberglass lamination. Also included is a gel coat surface resin of equal chemical resistance with the additive antimony trioxide for flame retardant and U.V. protection.
"Low profile" Fuel Containment Pads offer a crack-free secondary containment surface that provides fuel pad containment for both large tanker trucks or low clearance passenger cars and fuel bowsers. Our Containment Pad “side walls” have a tri-linear trilinear design. They are formed from an angular, composite, steel-cored, heavy duty stealth shape that prevents damage when driven over by heavy vehicles. Our fuel pad containment is the toughest secondary fuel containment system for truck spillage out there.
These systems are ideal for fuel pad containment and truck containment, i.e. service stations, and fill stands where a wide variety of vehicles might use the system. Incidental spills and drips are safely captured when these pads are used under generators, hydraulic mules, or other pieces of messy equipment. Keep in mind that our fuel pad containment system is modular in all sizes!
Each of our vehicle Containment Pads is equipped with one or more threaded drain ports. These ports can be equipped with ball valves or passive shut off filters that allow rainwater to drain, but close the port if hydrocarbons are released. Floor drains may also be installed if desired.
Limited site preparation, no excavation, fast and clean installation, immediate use, non-porous design, superior chemical resistance and portability are only some of the many advantages of the CONTAINMENT PAD by Polystar.
