  • Application
  •  
The Model 1 Ground Level Spill Containers are designed to catch any oil which can be spilled when disconnecting the delivery fitting during normal tank filling operations. The spill is prevented from entering the soil near the fill terminal and is allowed to drain directly into the tank. The optional suction hand pump allows removal of the unwanted overflow completely. Each spill container is complete, ready for installation and easily retrofits onto an existing 4" riser pipe. It includes a 4" fill nipple, corrosion resistant lockable fill cap and composite top-seal tight fill adapter.

The Model 1 Ground Level Spill Container is designed to catch any oil which can be spilled when disconnecting the delivery fitting during normal tank filling operations.  The spill is prevented from entering the soil near the fill terminal and is allowed to drain directly into the tank.  The optional suction hand pump allows  removal of the unwanted overflow completely.  Each spill container is complete, ready for installation and easily retrofits onto an existing 4" riser pipe. It includes a 4" fill nipple, corrosion resistant lockable fill cap and composite top-seal tight fill adapter.  The fill cap meets tamper-proof and liquid-tight regulations.

The Model 1 Ground Level Spill Container is protected from heavy  driveway traffic and surface water by a ramped, drain slotted, cast iron body ring.  A Flexible bellows construction permits height alignment to grade.  The design prevents the transmission of traffic weight to the fill terminal, and accommodates normal tank, concrete or grade settling.  The durable heavy duty plastic construction of the assembly below grade section assures years of maintenance free protection.  Should the need for soil testing arise, the removable bellows and lower body provide access without costly concrete excavation.

Body Ring: Cast Iron, epoxy coated

Bellows: Low Density Poly ethylene

Gravel Shroud: High Density Polyethylene
