FAQ - Hard Top P2 Plus


 

Why would I choose the IBC Spill Pallet Plus over the IBC Spill Pallet

The IBC Spill Pallet Plus has a lower profile (28”), is forkliftable and less expensive.

 

Why wouldn’t I choose the IBC Spill Pallet Plus over the IBC Spill Pallet? 

If you have a need for a larger sump capacity or a greater weight capacity, then the IBC Spill Pallet may be a better option for you.

 

Is the IBC Spill Pallet Plus forkliftable? 

Yes, there are forklift pockets on two sides of the Pallet.

 

Can the Ultra-IBC Spill Pallet Plus be moved with a forklift while there is a full tank on top of it? 

It is not recommended.

 

Can the Ultra-IBC Spill Pallet Plus support an IBC that has pedestal posts for legs, or just flat bottom IBCs? 

The Pallet has an 8,500 lb. capacity.  This is for uniformly distributed loads.  An IBC that is supported by pedestal post or feet focuses all of its weight on those feet.  If the dimensions of those feet is not large enough to properly displace the weight on the Spill Pallet’s grating, it could be an issue.  As a precaution, steel plates (at least 12" x 12") can be used under the feet in order to more evenly distribute the weight over a greater area.  If you have any concerns about your IBC’s weight, please contact us at 800-353-1611 / 904-292-1611.

 

How is the Ultra-IBC Spill Pallet Plus shipped?  

The Pallet is shipped via truck on an oversized wooden pallet to avoid damage in transit.  We can stack them up to 3 high.

 

What is the Ultra-IBC Spill Pallet Plus made of?   

Our pallets are made of 100% polyethylene which provides superior chemical compatibility and corrosion resistance.

 

Can you stack two IBCs on top of the Ultra-IBC Spill Pallet Plus?

Because of the potential weight of two fully loaded IBCs we would recommend that you use the Ultra-IBC Spill Pallet instead.  It is capable of safely handling up to 16,000 lbs. (UDL).

 

Is the Ultra-IBC Spill Pallet Plus available with a drain? 

Yes, you can order our Spill Pallet either with a drain (Part# 1158) or without a drain (Part# 1157).

 

Can the Ultra-IBC Spill Pallet Plus be used outdoors?   

Yes, if it under a shelter.  If no shelter exists, we recommend the IBC Hard Top, which has a built-in cover system.

 

Are there any other accessories that I should know about? 

Yes, the Ultra-Bucket Shelf is an excellent complement to the Pallet.  It slides securely into built-in grooves in the side of the Pallet and captures any incidental leaks or spills that may occur when liquids are being dispensed from your IBCs.  If you order the Bucket Shelf at the same time as your Pallet we will also install a bulkhead fitting so that any liquids that are captured are directed into the pallet’s sump.

 

What’s with the columns inside of the sump and do they need to be installed a certain way? 

The columns provide the internal support and there is a correct way for them to be installed.  If you do not have instructions or have any questions, please contact us.
