In this video, we’ll teach you everything you need to know about the steel Ultra-IBC Spill Pallet, designed for storing flammable liquids. Note that our training videos are mostly designed to help our distributors better understand our products but can also be helpful to users of the products, as well.
Hello and welcome to another UltraTech product training session. Today, we’re talking about the Ultra-IBC Spill Pallet. And more specifically the Steel Model.
Before I start talking about the product, I think we should probably answer one question:
What the heck is an IBC?
That’s an excellent question! And here’s an excellent answer (or so I’d like to think) IBC stands for Intermediate Bulk Container. They’re also commonly knowns as totes or tanks.
IBCs are used for storage of chemicals similarly to 55-gallon drums, just on a larger scale. So in order to capture spills from these larger containers, this IBC Spill Pallet has a containment capacity of 370 gallons. That means it will comply with EPA spill containment regulations for up to and including 370 gallon totes.
If you’re not familiar with those regulations, I’m going to add a link below to a different video that explains the regs in detail.
Ok, let’s get on with the product training, shall we?
The Ultra-IBC Spill Pallet, Steel Model is a 14 ga. steel spill containment pallet designed for use with IBCs, totes, and tanks.
It measures 57” x 57” x 35”
The galvanized steel construction means years of service life and excellent chemical resistance. The grating is removable for easy clean-up or inspection.
As I mentioned earlier, it has a 370-gallon containment capacity and can hold up to 5,650 lbs.
So, why would you choose the IBC spill pallet instead of one of the other IBC spill pallets?
More than likely it would be because it is being used for storage of flammables. Steel spill pallets have a very distinct advantage over its polyethylene counterparts, and that is the ability to withstand fire and extremely high temperatures.
Why wouldn’t you choose the IBC Spill Pallet? Probably chemical compatibility. Polyethylene has a broader range of chemicals that it is compatible with compared to steel.
Other products to consider? Assuming you want to stay with steel, there’s the Ultra-Twin IBC Spill Pallet, Steel Model for TWICE as much spill-containing fun. Or, if you’re application is one that would work with polyethylene than the always popular Ultra-IBC Spill Pallet Plus is an outstanding choice!
There are links below to both of these products should you care to look into them further.
