Ultra-Spill Decks®

Standard

Low profile, modular spill decks allow you to design and create a spill containment system that meets your specific needs

The first spill containment products for drums were very tall in order to meet the required gallon capacity specified by the EPA regulations.  Many pallets today are still relatively tall (approx. 12-14" for 4-drum models and approx. 16-17" for 2-drum models).  In many situations and applications, this height is not an issue.  If drums are loaded and rarely used or simply stored on these spill pallets until they are needed, it's really not a big deal.

But for those applications where drums are being moved on and off the pallets with any kind of frequency, that height can become very significant, very quickly.  The other potential issue is the height at which a taller spill pallet can put the top of a drum.  If hazmat is being poured into the drum, or dispensed out of it, that height can put splashed or spilled liquid right at eye level. 

The Ultra-Spill Decks offer a very low profile (5 3/4") to make handling much easier.  It also lowers drum tops so that they are not dangerously close to eye level.  
Key Features:
  • Ultra-Spill Decks are available in 1, 2 and 4-drum modules. Modules are easily connected together with bulkhead fittings to allow a virtually unlimited number of customized configurations.
  • The bulkhead fittings not only "lock" connected modules together, but allow spilled liquid to flow from one module to the next.
  • All polyethylene construction meets a wide range of chemical compatibility needs.
  • Low profile designs  5¾" height offers safe and convenient loading/unloading of drums.
  • Applications include hazardous waste collection, storage of virgin chemicals, drum dispensing and battery storage.
  • Optional Loading Ramps provide added drum handling safety and convenience.
Compliance:  
  • Ultra-Spill Deck Containment Systems meet EPA Spill Containment Regulations when assembled in configurations of six (6) drums or more.
  • Meets SPCC and EPA Container Storage Regulation 40 CFR 264.175 Spill Containment Regulations.

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)


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.

 

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# 1073) and one T-Strip (part# 1131) 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. 

 

What are sidewall plugs for?  
Sidewall Plugs (part# 2221) can be used if you are no longer connecting a Spill Deck and therefore have a hole that needs to be plugged.

 

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 an UltraTech bladder or 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.
