Drum spill hazards dealt with safely

TWO drum storage units, from Empteezy, are designed for the safe collection of spillages of either acid- or aggressive chemical-based materials.

The drum waste collection centre is a covered container for two drums, incorporating an 820-litre (180gal) sump and two-part lockable cover. Each part of the cover can be independently raised to reveal either one or both drums, and the parts overlap to prevent the entry of rainwater. Price is £738.

Empteezys sump pallet is designed for indoor use and is available in both two- and four-drum versions. Both are fitted with a grid floor above the bund and translucent side walls, which enable drum spills to be detected without moving the drums.

Price of the sump pallet is £265
