Spill containment systems for fuel, water and chemicals
About Secondary Containment
SEI’s Environmental Product Group manufactures secondary containment berms that can be used for spill prevention as well as fuel transfer area protection, decontamination and site remediation. SEI stocks a selection of standard-sized secondary containment berms or it can provide custom berms to fit your specific application.
In addition, SEI offers certified engineered products for secondary containment systems that are used with collapsible fuel tanks, steel tanks or drum fuel. We also offer a remote site product line that includes a distinctive series of collapsible fuel tanks; the Arctic King™, the Jungle King™ and the Desert King™.
Inspectors are increasingly requesting operators to provide secondary containment around fuel drums and other bulk fuel storage sites. New regulations may also require spill prevention equipment in fuel transfer areas.
Heavy fines and work stoppages may result from non-compliance with regulations in your area. Implementing a spill prevention plan and owning the proper spill prevention equipment is your low-cost insurance against environmental penalties and far more costly spills.
SEI can help operators meet these challenges with its diverse range of spill prevention equipment. Choose from one of SEI’s off-the-shelf standard products or let SEI design a custom solution to meet your specific needs.
SEI was the first company to develop a go-no-go rainwater management system (RainDrain™), the first to engineer unique fabrics and products to meet the associated challenges of secondary fuel containment and the first to develop fire-resistant materials for arctic climates (Arctic-Shield™ fabric).
Arctic-Shield™ fabric has been specifically designed for secondary containment of fuels in Canada. Arctic-Shield™ is the most advanced secondary fabric on the market today for aboveground secondary containment berms. Exclusive to SEI Industries, this proprietary fabric comes in tan or green and is:
- Suitable for deployment to -50 °C
- Impermeable to fuel and hydrocarbons
- Fire resistant per NFPA 701
- Exceeds the requirements set by Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment (CCME) Environmental Code of Practice for Aboveground and Underground Storage Tank Systems Containing Petroleum and Allied Petroleum Products for secondary containment
- Meets Environment Canada regulations for fuel storage
SEI can use Arctic-Shield™ fabric for any of its manufactured secondary containment products including Insta-Berm (Frame), Insta-Berm (L-Rod), Mini-Berm, Ride-Side Berm and Drip Defender. SEI can also supply certified secondary containment drawings for site permitting purposes.
