Safe storage of fuel, brine, waste water and other liquid resources is a must from both cost and environmental perspectives. The Bladder Dike MPE® fuel bladder containment system is a heavy duty, surface mounted, reusable system that protects your business and the environment from damage from hazardous liquid spills. Read below to learn about the construction, usage and benefits of this Polystar liquid containment solution.
The innovative Bladder Dike MPE design allows all system components to be stacked on two aircraft pallets. This liquid and fuel bladder containment system sets up quickly and easily without the needs for special tools or lifting equipment. In addition, the Bladder 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.
Don’t be fooled by its easy assembly and site flexibility; the rugged Bladder Dike MPE can easily absorb the impact of a catastrophic spill without the escape of fuel or other hazardous liquids. When you need bladder containment you can count on in any situation, there’s no better product than the Bladder Dike MPE.
The primary components of each Bladder Dike MPE liquid containment system are a number of 4′ long x 36″ tall, straight and corner wall struts. With these modular building blocks you can create a variety of configurations to accommodate different bladder sizes and capacities. The lightweight and modular design allows for quick assembly without engineering assets. In addition, all components needed to secure the wall struts together are integrated into the struts themselves, assuring parts are not misplaced.
With this fuel bladder containment system, each interlocking joint is secured with a Locking Connector that is integrated into the wall strut. This joining system ensures high structural strength with minimal installation effort. The Bladder Dike MPE makes liquid bladder containment quick and easy.
After all of the wall struts are in position, the entire fuel bladder containment system is tied together with a heavy duty, cabling 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 setup of the Bladder Dike MPE fuel containment system is complete, a flexible liner (not part of the system) is rolled out and draped over the wall struts. This liner is locked into place with Liner Locker mechanisms – these protect it from damage. Once your liner is secured, the setup of this non-porous bladder containment system is complete.
What happens in the worst case scenario? If your fuel containment bladder fails, it will create a powerful wave that hits one side of the Bladder Dike MPE System. Structural support from both the weight of the still partially filled bladder 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 system, not over the wall, to prevent the escape of potentially hazardous liquids. You don’t have to worry about catastrophic spills when you use the Bladder Dike MPS hazardous fuel containment system.

"I have been installing Poly Dike MPE Systems for well over a year. My business requires a system that ships easily and installs quickly with minimal personnel and tools yet provides robust spill containment in a professional looking package. The MPE System not only meets, but exceeds my expectations in each of these areas ... All-in-all, I guess what’s most impressive is that after a single installation, every customer of mine now requires that I use the Poly Dike MPE for his job site. Nothing speaks more to the confidence me and my customers have in the MPE system than that."
