Choosing the Right Chemical Containers: Ensure Safe and Compliant Storage

Chemical storage containers are vital for ensuring the safety of your workplace and the environment. They safeguard chemicals, preventing leaks, spills, and accidents while meeting regulatory compliance standards. Choosing the suitable containers protects your employees, facilities, and environment.

  • Chemical Compatibility: The container material must be compatible with the chemical being stored. Improper storage can lead to container degradation, compromising safety.
  • Chemical Properties: Consider factors like the chemical's flammability, acidity/alkalinity, and viscosity. Flammables require special containers, while acids may corrode certain materials.
  • Storage Capacity: Choose a container size that accommodates the volume of chemical you need to store. Overfilling containers is a safety hazard.
  • Regulations: Adhere to local and federal regulations governing chemical storage. OSHA's Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) mandates specific container requirements for hazardous materials.

IBC Totes: The Workhorse of Chemical Storage

IBC totes (Intermediate Bulk Containers) are versatile, reusable industrial chemical storage and transportation containers. They typically have a capacity of 275 gallons to 330 gallons and are constructed from durable polyethylene or steel.

Benefits of IBC Totes:

  • Cost-effective: Offer a balance between affordability and durability.
  • Large Capacity: Ideal for storing large volumes of chemicals.
  • Stackable: Certain models can be stacked to maximize storage space.
  • Portable: IBC totes can be easily transported with a forklift or pallet jack.
  • UN Rated: Many IBC totes are UN rated for hazardous material transport.

Chemical Storage Drums: Durable and Versatile

Chemical storage drums are another popular storage option. They come in various sizes (typically from 15 gallons to 55 gallons) and materials like steel, polyethylene, and fiber.

Benefits of Chemical Storage Drums:

  • Durability: Steel drums offer superior strength and puncture resistance for heavy-duty applications.
  • Chemical Compatibility: Polyethylene drums are resistant to a wide range of chemicals, making them versatile.
  • Lightweight: Plastic drums are lighter than steel drums, facilitating easier handling.
  • Cost-Effective: A budget-friendly option for many chemical storage needs.

Choosing the Right Material for Chemical Containers

The appropriate container material depends on the specific chemical being stored. Here's a general guideline:

  • Polyethylene: A popular choice for compatibility with a variety of chemicals, including acids and bases. They are lightweight and resistant to corrosion.
  • Steel: Ideal for storing flammable liquids and chemicals requiring puncture resistance. Steel drums also provide good stackability.
  • Stainless Steel: Offers superior corrosion resistance for acids and other harsh chemicals.

For optimal storage conditions, consider these additional factors:

If your containers are stored outdoors, choose UV protection options to prevent degradation caused by sunlight exposure. Double-walled containers are also a valuable safety feature. They provide an extra layer of protection in case the inner container fails, helping to contain any leaks or spills.

Benefits of Using Chemical Storage Containers

Chemical storage containers are a valuable investment for ensuring your chemicals' safe, compliant, and efficient storage. They offer many benefits, including enhanced safety by preventing leaks, spills, and accidents. Additionally, they guarantee adherence to regulations set forth for chemical storage. These containers are built with durability in mind, providing long-term storage solutions.

With various sizes and materials available, you can find the perfect fit for your specific chemicals and applications.
