Spill containment that only collapses when you want it to
Having drive-in spill containment that you can collapse when you need to is very handy for many situations.
New Pig has two types:
- a heavy-duty spill containment system, and
- a highly cost-effective, entry-level system.
As with all New Pig products, both are extremely robust.
a) What is the heavy-duty spill containment system?
Depending upon your needs, there are three sump capacities in the heavy-duty PIG Collapse-A-Tainer Fail-Safe Spill Containment: 2,831 litres, 9,512 litres and 19,820 litres.
The units are all black, although custom sizes and colours are available. The small and medium-size systems have two manual side walls, with the other two walls being manual or automatic. The largest size has two automatic and two manual walls. The end walls can remain folded down during normal use, but will automatically rise with the liquid level if a leak occurs, and the brackets stay out of the way to stop them breaking from being accidentally hit or driven over.
b) What is the entry-level spill containment system?
Like its big brother, the PIG Collapse-A-Tainer Spill Containment Bund comes in three sizes: 678 litres, 1,359 litres and 2,831 litres.
The black and yellow units are made from a co-polymer geomembrane with PVC wall supports and skirt and aluminium support struts. They are re-engineered so they give great value, yet are still top quality with high performance. These systems don't need to be assembled, and their one-piece design needs no additional parts or tools. The collapsible sidewalls have a skirt attached with outside aluminium-reinforced supports that help the walls stay rigid and upright, while the sides fold down easily to allow you to drive pallet jacks and forklifts into and out of the containment. They also have a drain plug kit so you can easily discharge any rainwater.
