What are the dimensions for the forklift pockets?
Are these Spill Pallets forkliftable from all four sides?
The 4-Drum model is forkliftable from all four sides. The 2-drum model is forkliftable from either of the two longer (53") sides.
Why is there a ramp offered for the 4-drum pallet but not the 2-drum?
The P2 Spill Pallet is taller (16.5") than the P4 Spill Pallet (11.75"). A ramp to reach that height would have to be fairly long in order to make a safe and effective slope. The cost to make such a large ramp is cost prohibitive. If you are interested in a 2-drum pallet that has a ramp available, we suggest looking at the Spill Pallet Plus Models.
Why do these pallets have a 66-gallon capacity? I thought the requirement was for 55-gallons.
The EPA requirements (40 CFR 264.175) do call for 55-gallons. So the Ultra-Spill Pallets EXCEED those federal requirements. However, when these pallets were introduced to the market, there was another requirement in the Uniform Fire Code. That requirement is no longer in effect but called for a 66-gallon sump capacity.
Can I add a drain to my Spill Pallet after its been purchased/delivered?
Yes, there are two different ways that it can be done. Both are easy to do and inexpensive. Please contact us for more information.
I'm not sure if I should get a Spill Pallet with a drain or without. What do you recommend?
Good arguments can be made for either option so it is difficult to give a single recommendation. Some users prefer to have a drain to make clean-up easier. If a spill occurs, the drain plug can be unscrewed and the contents can drain out into an appropriate container. Others feel that the drain plug is something that could be unscrewed (for cleaning or maintenance) and then forgotten. Needless to say, that would make for a very ineffective spill containment pallet.
If I don't have a drain, then how am I supposed to clean up after a spill?
We recommend using a pump like the Bladder Pump (Part# 2345) used with our Spill Deck Bladder Systems. Click here to see a video of it in action.
How many pallets can be put in a single stack for shipping? What other shipping information should I know?
The Ultra-Spill Pallet P4 can be stacked up to eight (8) high. The Ultra-Spill Pallet P2 can be stacked up to six (6) high. Both are freight class 150 and NMFC 150390-4.
