Visit the SEI Team and find out more about recent changes to the Environment Canada Fuel Storage Regulations specifically for collapsible fuel tanks or find out more about SEI’s new Fire Resistant Arctic-Shield™ fabric, designed specifically for above-ground secondary containment products.  

Jan. 27, 2010 – Environment Canada has officially released its Technical Guidance Document for collapsible storage tanks which will be published and posted in March, 2010, at the following web address www.ec.gc.ca/st-rs.   This new document provides significant information for operators.

The document covers the minimum requirements for the design and construction of collapsible fabric storage tanks used for above-ground storage of petroleum products and allied petroleum products.  Installations that have storage tank systems built around collapsible fabric storage tanks will be required to meet all applicable sections of these regulations. 

SEI Industries is proud to be able to offer the Arctic King – a collapsible fuel tank that meets Environment Canada’s Technical Guidance Document.   Arctic King collapsible fuel tanks are manufactured from fabric specifically designed for liquid fuel storage in sub-zero climates.  Constructed from a proprietary high-durability fabric unique to SEI Industries, the Arctic King exceeds all US military specifications and has excellent UV and hydrolysis resistance for a longer life expectancy than any other urethane collapsible fabric tank.

Feb. 26, 2010 – SEI Industries Ltd. is pleased to announce the launch of its new proprietary Fire Resistant Arctic-Shield™ fabric, designed specifically for above-ground secondary containment products.  

SEI’s new industrial fabric represents the first time a fabric has been engineered specifically for secondary containment of hydro-carbons in arctic environments.  It is also the first above-ground secondary containment fabric that is fire resistant to NFPA 701 standards.  Since other types of fabric use under-ground secondary containment liners, they are tested to a less stringent fire resistant standard because they are typically buried under six inches of gravel. 

Fire Resistant Arctic Shield™ fabric is unique because it is the first fabric that combines all the critical features needed for cold climate secondary containment of fuels and has the tear, puncture and abrasion resistance to be used in above-ground secondary containment applications.   It is:

  • Suitable for deployment to -50 °C (-65 °F)

  • Impermeable to fuel and hydrocarbons

  • Fire resistant to NFPA 701 standards

Fire Resistant Arctic Shield™ fabric exceeds the requirements established by the Underwriters Laboratories Canada recently withdrawn specification ULC-ORD-C58.9
