Plastic Spill Pallets

 One of the most important factors in the construction of spill pallets is the material that they are made from.  In general, the pallets need to be made from a non reactive material such as a plastic.  Mostly, the material of choice is polyethylene.Plastic Spill Pallets.

 

If your business uses a lot of volatile chemicals or oils, then one of your main concerns as far as material handling goes is to reduce the possibility of spillages.  Aside from the costs related to wasting important or expensive chemicals through spilling them across the floor, the major concern is that these chemicals can damage the surface of the floor, as well as creating a risk of injury to staff.  Because accidents do happen, it is important to put as many safety measures such as spill pallets in place to minimize the risk of release when a barrel topples over.

 

A spill pallet is a slight modification of a standard pallet that is designed to contain any liquids that slosh out of a drum so that rather then ending up all over the floor; the liquid can be captured in a tank under the pallet.  There are a number of different designs of spill pallets available that have been produced to be used under different circumstances, although they all work in roughly the same way.

 

One of the most important factors in the construction of spill pallets is the material that they are made from.  In general, the pallets need to be made from a non reactive material such as a plastic.  Mostly, the material of choice is polyethylene.  This is lightweight enough to be carried well on the fork lift, and can resist damage from almost any liquid that might be spilled as it is being moved around.

 

Depending on the kind of materials that you are moving around in oil drums, you can choose different spill pallets with very different capacities for dealing with spillages.  From pallets that can contain just 9 gallons of liquid through to much larger units that can cope with the contents of more than two full 55 gallon drums, and handle 120 gallons of spilled liquid.

 

The principal time when you will need a spill pallet is when drums are being moved around the workplace from one location to another.  It is at this time, when the motion of the fork lift can cause a drum to topple over that it is most important to prevent spillage.  Generally, it is not necessary to keep the drums stored on a spill pallet, as there is no need or justification for the additional cost in terms of a storage solution.

 

You can choose from spill pallets to carry between one and four drums.  This means that whatever load you need to carry around the workplace, you will be able to move it in a way that protects your products as well as possible.

 

It is essential to clean the spill pallets regularly in order to be certain that if any liquids are spilled into them, the liquid can be simply recycled back into the drum and used for whatever purpose it is needed.  With this fact in mind, it is clear that investing in a spill pallet for moving items around the building is an expense that can be recovered quickly in the event of a spillage.  The reduced cost incurred by any accidents will quickly offset the expense of purchasing the equipment
