CLEANING UP THE MESS WITH CARBIS PRODUCTS
Around the world, rail cars that are involved in hazardous material spills, such as waste, oil or chemicals, draw serious attention, and the fines and claims lodged afterward can lead to enormous costs.
However, it isn’t always the high-profile spills that can be extremely costly and potentially damaging to a company’s reputation. Even minor spills that occur at docking stations can lead to serious penalties and fines, depending on which regulations are not complied with.
Railcar operators can mitigate the risks of these spills with the right products from Carbis Incorporated, which are designed specifically for the railcar industry.
This spill containment equipment is an effective way to clean up any spills or drips that may occur during material handling processes. The pans fit easily into all rail cars and loading/unloading areas, and facilities managers can rest assured they are in full compliance with environmental regulations.
Like all Carbis products, these pans can be uniquely designed for any facility. However, all units come standard with a few key features. The pans can be installed from end-to-end on rails, so no area is left unprotected, and are manufactured with high-gauge carbon steel for added strength.
Depending on facility managers’ preferences, the pans can be made out of galvanised or stainless steel or aluminium – all of which are much stronger and longer-lasting than traditional fibreglass
Further demonstrating how Carbis’ spill containment systems can be tailor made for any operation, the systems that are available include a center pan and two side pans that are linked together by a drain, providing ultimate coverage. However, center pans can be used alone if it is necessary.
With the right investment in Carbis’ spill containment products, businesses can significantly lower the chance of having to pay hefty fees and penalties related to environmental regulatory compliance.
