Railroad Secondary Containment Systems

Prevent harmful railroad spills and maintain compliance with a railcar containment system.

Railcar & Railroad Berms for Hazardous Chemicals

Why Hazardous Material Railroad Berms?

Class One Rail Companies and general industry companies required to move hazardous materials from one location to another need to have railroad berms and other secondary spill containment systems in place. Oftentimes, these companies pick up materials from liquid terminals and transport them to multiple locations. Railroad companies put railroad berms and prevention measures in many places to transport hazardous materials.

Railroad companies use railcar berms to address and avoid hazardous spills that damage the environment.

Portable Railroad Berms for Spill Containment

Polystar Containment’s Star Track railroad berm is an easy-to-install, portable and reliable spill containment system. Spill containment solutions help businesses by:

  • Working in hot or cold temperatures
  • Containing materials permanently or temporarily
  • Containing three connectable pans that can be used independently or to accommodate multiple applications
  • Offering the option of using filter boxes or manifold drainage connections for railroad secondary containment

Rail Containment and SPCC Regulations

The Federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)prevents hazardous material discharge into navigable waters in the United States and adjoining shorelines. The EPA’s Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasures (SPCC) regulations outline the need for railroad berms. The SPCC plan requirements also provide rules specifying the proper design, sizing and application of these systems. All Class One Rail Companies and general industry companies must closely adhere to the regulations as they are strictly enforced.

Polystar rail containment solutions comply with government regulations for avoiding expensive spills. Get the railcar berms and railroad berm for hazardous materials your company needs.
