For minor spills and leaks, battery or maintenance spill pads can be ideal. Battery/maintenance spills pads are designed to quickly contain minor spills during temporary storage of drums, machine parts, batteries, and equipment. They feature a lightweight but durable PVC construction that provides broad UV and chemical resistance. Battery/maintenance spill pads can also help facilities to comply with EPA spill prevention control and countermeasures (SPCC) plans.
Small containment berms or drip pads can prevent oil or other substances from seeping into the concrete floors of a garage or warehouse. For smaller jobs that involve tight spaces, a leak pad can easily fit into a cramped work area and collect and leakage from batteries or fuel tanks. To help you find the small leak containment solution that is best suited to your need, here is a brief description of the various small leak containment options from Basic Concepts and their intended applications.
Drip berms are designed to capture small leaks—like oil, fuel, or other liquids—before they can contaminate the floor or ground of a work area. The lightweight PVC construction of the drip berm makes it UV and chemically resistant. The replaceable, inner absorption pad of the drip berm can retain a total of 5 quarts of liquid. Once a job is done, simply insert a new absorption pad into your drip berm to collect new leaks and spills. The outer layer of the drip berm features a coated-mesh design that will trap larger debris and prevent it from entering the drip berm.
Facility and Building Leak Capture
Leak diverters are a natural extension to the current Basic Concepts’ spill prevention product family. The suspended funneling design performs exceptionally well when a quick response to a leak is needed.
Protecting machinery from spills and leaks using cement curbs or angle irons can be expensive. Alternatively, facilities could use the innovative Make-A-Berm™ kits from Basic Concepts. Make-A-Berm kits can be easily fashioned into semi-permanent, high-visibility barriers of virtually any size or shape. The advantage of the Make-A-Berm kit is that it can be formed to fit the exact specifications needed in any application.
Pop-Up Pools are an economical spill containment option that can be easily unfolded and placed under leaky equipment to prevent spills and leaks from spreading. The Pop-Up Pool conveniently folds down to a compact size for storage, making it ideal for mobile spill containment. The durable vinyl fabric construction of the Pop-Up Pool from Basic Concepts is 20% heavier than other models on the market providing users with a containment pool that has increased abrasion resistance and more reliable seam adhesions. The Pop-Up Pool is ideal for containing spills from punctured saddle tanks or leaking drums, hydraulic lines, pipes, and machinery.
