Houghton Wraps Up Indoor Fluid Management and Storage

Houghton Wraps Up Indoor Fluid Management and Storage

Added to MTDCNC by Houghton PLC on 15 May 2017

For environmental and hazard safe handling of oils and workshop fluids, Houghton International has a complete range of storage solutions available. Conforming to all health and safety regulation, the world leading developer and manufacturer of metalworking fluids has a vast array of indoor and outdoor storage solutions on offer. 

With regard to indoor fluid management and storage, Houghton International has a selection of polythylene spill pallets and steel spill pallets to accomodate the storage of workshop oils. With regard to the polythylene spill pallets, the robust unit allows customers to store 2 x 1000ltr IBC’s side by side on the plastic mesh deck. The large capacity sump meets Environment Agency guideline PPG26 and all the UK Oil Storage Regulations.

For the indoor storage of barrels various units are available for storing anything from one to eight barrels on a single unit.. All units are manufactured from polyethylene to form a robust plastic

drum spill pallet and the benefit of this is that there are no seams that could leak and the pallets also have a good chemical compatatbility. The 240 litre capacity pallet has a tare weight of just 23kg, meaning that it can easily be moved around the workshop if necessary.

The steel systems are available as a four or 12 barrel bund. The four barrel bund is manufactured from galvanised steel that has a spill pallet that incorporates a fully seam welded sump that is fully compliant with all the UK regulations relating to sump capacities and a removable galvanised steel grid mesh deck. Furthermore, it is fitted as standard with 150mm wide fork hoops, which are used for moving the pallet and keeping the underside of the sump off the ground.

The 12 drum indoor bunded store has been designed to hold twelve 205ltr drums horizontally and this bunded store is manufactured from 3mm steel plate and has RHS cross members, pressed ribs and a heavy duty RHS end frame with 2mm corrugated panels.

The front of the store is open for ease of access and safety ‘stop rails’ at the back to prevent drums from being pushed through. With galvanised support channels and a fully seam welded sump the store is fitted with plinths to eliminate contact with the ground. It is shot blasted before being painted to offer maximum protection and longevity. For more details on storing your fluids safely, please contact Houghton International.
