Stackable drum racks and sumps prevent chemical spills

| By Mary Page Bailey

This company’s pallet-rack spill-containment sumps (photo) catch spills and drips associated with liquid storage and dispensing, keeping areas neat and safe. Containment sumps positioned beneath the drum rack are manufactured of heavy-gauge steel, which is galvanized for long service life with a rust-free appearance. They feature fully welded frame construction for durability, with sump welds fully inspected with low-viscous test fluids to ensure leak-tightness. A forklift pocket allows sumps to be moved easily. Sumps are sized to meet or exceed OSHA, EPA, NFPA, UFC and other requirements. Galvanized steel grating provides secure platform for vertical drums. Sump liners are available for highly corrosive liquids. Versatile designs and configurations allow the vertical or horizontal storage of drums, pails and small containers, as well as IBC totes. — Denios Inc., Louisville, Ky.
