Incidental spills occur frequently during railcar transfer operations. Our Star Track® containment pan is a modular composite system that prevents leaks and incidental spills from pooling and leeching.
Star Track® Spill containment pans are used by several industries to keep products from spilling or leaking onto the ground. Each of our containment pans uses high-strength, corrosion-resistant fiberglass and track pans made from galvanized steel and stainless steel. For drive-over applications (H-20 loading), our track pan systems use heavy-duty galvanized steel.
Each fuel and oil spill containment pan consists of three long, low-profile pans. Each pan is four inches high, twenty feet long and approximately ten feet wide. Custom track pans are available upon request. A center pan contains spills between the tracks, while two outrigger pans contain spills on either side of the railcar track.
Easily assemble the Star Track® fuel spill containment pan using standard hand tools. The Star Track® system fits tight against the rail and secures the track pan in place using special fasteners and weldments.
Connect your Star Track® spill containment pans or use them independently depending on your transloading application. An optional drainage manifold fits snugly underneath and across to connect all three pans. In each pan, drain ports collect fluids and connect to a drainpipe, a collection drain, or sump pump.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) directive regarding Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) regulation sets forth requirements for the prevention, preparedness, and response to oil discharges at specific non-transportation-related facilities, including transloading sites and other rail depots. The goals of this regulation are to prevent oil from reaching navigable waters and adjoining shorelines, and to create requirements for the development and implementation of SPCC equipment.
Star Track® oil containment pans and railway containment systems comply with EPA requirements and Best Management Practices (BMP) for incidental spill containment. Polystar’s modular track pan system is an affordable, expandable countermeasure to prevent incidental spills from becoming deleterious to the surrounding environment.
