Mobile Refueler Containment

Contain incidental spills and prevent leaks during mobile refueler transfers or fuel fill-up operations with a fuel spill containment system.

Fuel Spill Containment: Prevent Fuel Spills on Mobile Refuelers

What 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.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), 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
  • Tank truck home bases

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 that harm people, property and the environment. Fuel tank containment systems provide superior spill protection for vehicles when parked inside the berm.

The Containment Pad™ for Mobile Refueler Spill Prevention & Containment

What are the rules for secondary containment? Governmental legislative requirements mandate the containment any hazardous materials stored in tanks, drums, trucks, and other containers. The Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure rule helps to prevent the discharge of oil into navigable waters or adjoining shorelines.

The SPCC regulation requires facilities to develop, maintain, and implement an oil spill prevention plan, or an SPCC plan. General secondary containment requirements apply to mobile refuelers at SPCC-regulated facilities and should address the most likely discharge from the container and from oil transfers into or from the mobile refueler.

Why do you need secondary containment? Stay compliant with federal SPCC regulations during all periods of operations to and from mobile refuelers by obtaining an appropriate fuel or oil tank containment system, such as the Containment Pad.

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 hydrocarbons while allowing removal of rainwater from the Containment Pad system.
