Ultra-Spill Decks®

Fluorinated Models

Use Fluorinated Spill Decks with chlorinated solvents and other aggressive chemicals that may not be compatible with standard polyethylene

The chemical compatibility of our standard Spill Decks and Spill Deck Bladder Systems is very good and usually sufficient for most spill containment applications.  But there are times when there is a need for secondary containment of more aggressive chemicals and the standard polyethylene material in our Spill Decks is not enough.  For those special applications, we start with a different color resin (light blue) to quickly and easily identify the product.  It is then treated with Fluorine gas in a surface modification process known as Fluorination. 

This process modifies the material on a molecular level to allow for a higher level of chemical compatibility.  (NOTE:  Please contact us for compatibility information for your specific application.  While it can be generally stated that fluorinated polyethylene provides a higher level of chemical compatibility, there are some exceptions to that rule).

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you get spillage out of the sump?  
We recommend using a pump (UltraTech part# 2345 can be used) to remove any spilled contents from the sump.  (Note:  spillage should be pumped into an approved container).  Chemical compatibility should be checked prior to using the pump.


How does the ramp connect to the decks? 
The Spill Deck Ramp (part# 1089) comes complete with two steel clips that quickly install on the end of the ramp.  These clips hook onto the connecting Spill Deck and keep the ramp from moving or shifting during loading or unloading.  NOTE:  Part# 1089 is NOT fluorinated.

 

I need to add another Spill Deck to the one I already have.  How do I do that?  What do I need?  
Other than the Spill Deck, you’ll need one Bulkhead Fitting (part# 1473) and one T-Strip (part# 1431) for every 26” of Spill Deck length that is connected.  For example if you’re connecting a 4-Drum Spill Deck to another 4-Drum Spill Deck you would need two Bulkhead Fittings and two T-Strips.  If, on the other hand, you were connecting a 1-Drum Spill Deck to the short end of a 2-Drum Spill Deck, you would only need one each of the Bulkhead Fitting and T-Strip.

 

The Spill Deck that I bought previously does not have any holes to put the Bulkhead Fitting through.  Can I drill holes myself?
Yes.  All that is required is a 1 9/16” hole saw (1 ½” will also work).  On each side of the Ultra-Spill Decks are “dimpled” areas that indicate where holes are to be drilled.  Center the hole saw on the area you need to be drilled and carefully cut the hole(s) for your Bulkhead Fittings.   File or “flame” any rough or sharp edges prior to connecting. 

 

Is the deck slip resistant?  
Yes, all grating surfaces on the Spill Decks are slip resistant.

 

What does a T-strip do?  
The T-Strips lay across the point where two Spill Decks come together.  By “bridging the gap” this piece diverts spills to either of the Decks and keeps any spillage from getting between the units.

 

How many Bulkhead Fittings and T-strips do I need?  
One for each 26” of Spill Deck that is being connected.

 

Does the Ultra-Spill Deck’s sump capacity meet regulations?  
(Note:  The answer to this question is based on one assumption:  That the Spill Decks are being used with 55-gallon drums).  By themselves, the 1-Drum, 2-Drum and 4-Drum Spill Decks do not meet EPA requirements.  They must be connected to another Ultra-Spill Deck to increase the total sump capacity to 55 gallons minimum. 

 

What is the size of the grating? 
All Spill Decks use a grating that is 48"L x 24"W x 2.5"H or 24"L x 24"W x 2.5"H.
