Trans Environmental Systems Inc.: Spill-Barrow™, Roll-under Containment Pan

Trans Environmental Systems Inc.

This mobile containment is designed for capturing releases during the loading or fueling of tanker truck, heavy off-road construction equipment or under piping manifolds where delivery hoses are attached/disconnected. This low profile pan is roughly 60” by 30” wide so it can be rolled to any maintenance location in an industrial plant for quick response. The 10” diameter wheels facilitate movement even over railroad ballast and unpaved access roadway. With a liquid capacity of 40 gallons, it’s also equipped with a ¾” NPT half-coupling for affixing a drain valve and/or hose connection.The flat bottom is designed for easy cleaning. When not in service, the Spill-Barrow ™ can be stored outside, leaning against a building or wall and it will not collect rainwater that may require expensive EPA testing and disposal. The unique front containment “gutter” collects and holds any residue left in the Spill-Barrow following clean-out.The Spill-Barrow is available in mild steel with a wide variety of coatings, in stainless steel, cor-ten steel, and aluminum. By removing the handle, this spill containment can easily be mounted on the back of delivery tanker trucks.
