Secondary Containment Systems
POLY DIKE MPE®
Safe storage of hazardous chemicals is a must from both cost and environmental perspectives. The Poly Dike MPE® dike containment system is a heavy duty, surface mounted, re-useable secondary containment system for storage tanks that meets both these requirements effectively.
The innovative Poly Dike MPE design allows all system components to be nested and stacked. The system sets up quickly and easily with NO special tools or lifting equipment required. In addition, the Poly Dike MPE is not secured to the substrate, so it is perfect for long term or temporary use in parking lots, sand, rocky soil, muddy soil, frozen soil or on concrete areas. Despite the ease of assembly and site flexibility, the rugged Poly Dike MPE can easily absorb the impact of a catastrophic tank failure without loss.

Despite the ease of assembly and site flexibility, the rugged Poly Dike MPE can easily absorb the impact of a catastrophic tank failure without loss, thanks in part to its unique harness assembly system pictured to the right.
Each interlocking joint is secured with a Locking Connector integral to the wall strut. This joining system ensures high structural strength with minimal installation effort.
After all of the wall struts are in position, the entire dike containment system is tied together with a heavy duty, woven nylon web Harness Assembly. On all four sides of the Harness Assembly are pigtails ending in solid steel D rings. These D rings slide into custom designed slots in the wall struts, where they are anchored in place by the Locking Connector.
Stretching the Harness assembly taut creates a unified, super-strong structure. After set up of the Poly Dike MPE is complete, a flexible liner is rolled out and draped over the wall struts. Securing the liner in place with the innovative Liner Locks finishes set up of a non-porous, spill containment system without damaging the liner.
A catastrophic tank failure creates a powerful wave of fuel that hits one side of the Poly Dike MPE System. Structural support from both the weight of the still partially filled tank on the Harness Assembly and the Harness Assembly's locked steel D rings on the opposite wall allow the system to withstand the wave’s force without movement. Further, the uniquely angled wall strut design forces any flow back into the dike containment system, not over the wall, to prevent loss as well as protect against environmental contamination.
