The majority of products DENIOS manufactures contain sumps that meet or exceed spill-compliant requirements. From Poly solutions to Steel with grate included.
Although both steel and poly drums come in a variety of sizes/capacities, our Drum Pallets, Sumps, and enclosures base sump volume on storing 55-gallon drums as that is the most commonly used industrial drum in the US.
It is commonly said that one drop of oil can contaminate up to 1,000 liters of water. Contamination of waters threatens a fine or even imprisonment. But what should be done to prevent this from happening?
The 7 biggest mistakes when emptying spill pallets
It is not uncommon for liquids to leak and this can happen at any time. But what then? How does the liquid get out of the tray? This is not as trivial as it sounds: when emptying drip pans, serious mistakes can happen. Here you can find out what you should never do under any circumstances - and how to do it correctly.
As a supplier and manufacturer of the largest range of collection trays, we can assure you: There is a suitable collection tray for every requirement. How to choose the optimal product for your needs, we reveal to you in the following.
If storage is permitted in water protection areas, the entire storage quantity must be able to be retained. In our assortment, you will find the right drip tray for small containers, or the right spill pallet for drums and IBCs for every possible application. As a decision-making aid, you can use our online guidebook. Our expert advisors are also able to help if there are questions or uncertainties.
Compliant spill capacity is based on the EPA's 40 CFR part 264.175(b), which states - "The containment system must have sufficient capacity to contain 10% of the volume of containers or the volume of the largest container, whichever is greater." Therefore, Drum Pallets designed to hold 1, 2, 4, 6, or 8 - 55-gallon drums all require the same containment capacity - 55 gallons. (Always consult with your local Authority Having Jurisdiction regarding compliant chemical storage.)
Steel, Stainless Steel or Polyethylene?
This depends mainly on which material is to be stored on the spill pallet. In principle, the material of the collecting basin must be resistant to the material to be stored.
As a rule of thumb, if water-endangering substances and / or flammable liquids are adjusted, for example oils, varnishes or paints, one must choose a steel sumps. DENIOS offers most steel spill pallets galvanized or varnished. Both variants are possible in principle.
For the storage of aggressive chemicals, such as acids and alkali, poly/plastic or stainless steel spill pallets are used. These are non-corrosive and therefore optimally designed for the storage of these substances.

Depending on the requirements, DENIOS filling stations can be designed for one or more containers. Solutions for up to 3 IBCs in a row can be made of steel or PE, for example.
What should be considered when filling?
First of all, it must be ensured that all safety precautions and protective measures are observed. You can find out exactly what these are in our guide. Only use accessories and pumps that are suitable for the liquid being stored. In the case of highly flammable liquids, appropriate explosion protection measures must be observed. This also includes explosion-proof working materials such as pumps, suction devices or grounding cables. When handling hazardous substances, suitable occupational safety measures must always be observed.
