Secondary Containment Tanks
Secondary Spill Containment Tanks and Berms
Secondary Containment tanks and berms are for control of spills from products. Open top tanks are often designed in an onion style for quick placement under spills as they occur. Berms allow items to be stored directly on them as a precaution that they may leak or spill. A closed collapsible pillow tank can be of use for draining liquids collected in a secondary containment product without having to move it. In some products, a bladder is attached for extra capacity and easy disposal on contents. Below is a brief description of the advantages for each type of product, along with a link for more information on the product.

With multiple fabrics and tank materials, these containment tanks and berms are some of the most versatile storage or response units available. Their flexible designs help the tank fit in small areas under leaking pipes, machinery, and other equipment. Since these tanks and berms are typically lighter in weight, they are easier to move when unexpected leaks or spills occur.

See How The Secondary Containment Tank Has Been Used
Containment Under Tanks: Available with materials that contain a high resistance to outdoor conditions, hydrocarbons, and other contaminated materials, the open top containment tanks have a low profile for placement under large pipes, machines, or even vehicles. Tanks can be built with thicker walls for reliable containment.
Storage: Some of the pillow tanks are also used as a temporary storage tank for oil spill products, gray water, or even chemical storage. These storage tanks keep a low profile and can hold as much as 210,000 gallons. Secondary Containment Berms and Liners are recommended for added containment.
Decontamination: Onion tanks are also a great choice for decontamination of booms, suits, skimmers and other oil spill cleanup equipment. These tanks can be built with higher sides for increased containment of liquids or larger materials.
