3 Steps to the Right Spill Pallet

Current regulations stipulate that secondary containment must be used during the storage and transfer of substances hazardous to water, to reduce the risk of pollution to land, surface waters and groundwater. 

A DENIOS spill pallet offers the necessary protection for storing water hazardous substances whilst maintaining a safe and clean working environment.

As a supplier and manufacturer of the largest collection of spill pallets, we can assure you that we offer the right solution for every requirement.

Here we tell you how to choose the optimal product for your needs: 

1  Which material are you storing?

Spill pallets should be chosen from the right material because only the properly selected material ensures optimum resistance to the stored media.

For the storage of water-polluting, flammable substances, such as oils and lacquers, steel spill pallets are suitable. Steel spill pallets are available in a galvanized or painted versions.

For the storage of aggressive chemicals such as acids and alkalis, spill pallets made of stainless steel or plastic should be used.

The media resistance list as a proven aid

In order to be able to select the suitable material for the spill pallet, it is recommended to look into the safety data sheets of the substances to be stored. There you will find all relevant information about storage and transport.

Our media resistance list also gives you useful information on suitable materials for a wide variety of chemicals. The corrosion resistance of the spill pallet materials used as well as their compatibility with the stored substances must be verifiable.

For many chemical substances, spill pallets made of steel (1.0038) can be used. For corrosive substances such as acids and alkalis, spill pallets made of polyethylene or stainless steel are required. 



2  What collection volume is required?

As a rule of thumb: a spill pallet must be able to absorb 110% of the total storage quantity. 

Depending on whether you want to store small or various containers together, we offer quality products in every size.

3  Should special functions be fulfilled?

Spill pallets must - depending on the application - be able to cope with different requirements. Sump trays for easy storage are often already equipped with a foot construction or integrated fork pockets, which facilitate transport with the forklift on the factory premises.

If the sump pallet is to be transported particularly frequently, mobile drip trays specially developed for this application are recommended. Filling operations on the stored goods can be carried out particularly effectively with a filling station.

Floor sumps protect larger areas from the penetration of hazardous liquids into the groundwater. These floor elements are ideal, thanks to extensive accessories ranging from edge fastenings to the loading ramp, for safely lining entire rooms.
