What exactly is a mobile refueler and why does it need fuel pad containment?
A mobile refueler is a bulk storage container on-board a vehicle that is designed or used solely to store and transport fuel for transfer into or from an aircraft, motor vehicle, locomotive, vessel, ground service equipment, or other oil storage container. Mobile refuelers may be found at the following transportation and non-transportation-related locations: industrial sites, airports, military bases, construction sites, chemical complexes, mining sites, seaport terminals, and tank truck home bases, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Spill prevention for mobile refuelers is designed to prevent leaks or spills from these movable devices, which can sometimes experience bumps, jolts and maneuverings that can cause accidental spills to occur into the environment.
The Containment Pad is a system that contains incidental fuel spills that occur during transfer or fuel fill-up operations. This durable fuel containment pad is made out of flexible fiberglass composite materials and can be installed on a variety of solid substrates and applications. It’s perfect for mobile refueler containment and is an affordable secondary containment resource where needed.
Polystar’s hazardous material secondary containment systems are often custom-made and designed to meet SPCC compliance regulations. Special filter drain systems are available to pull out hydro-carbons while allowing removal of rainwater from the Containment Pad 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."
