Exflo Flexible Spill Containment Berms


Effective protection against the risk of uncontrolled leakage

During several production processes the chemical substances used may cause a significant risk for living organisms and the environment. In order to minimize this risk, appropriately selected spill containment berms are being used. Regulations, MSDS and internal procedures together with their appropriate implementation also help companies to use the hazardous substances in a proper way.

Exflo sump trays are durable. A special, reinforced version of the material (“Plus”) allows the forklift to move freely on the unfolded sump tray. Thanks to this, you can secure a large warehouse space.

Technical parameters

Below we show the tables for two versions of our product (version ‘basic” and “plus’ i.e. a stronger one). The chemical resistance table applies equally to two types of membrane. The list of compounds and their contact time with membrane of EFB spill containment berms is extensive. Nevertheless, if you do not find the desired substance in the basic table, please contact us.

WIDE RANGE OF MODELS

As a manufacturer of spill containment berms, Exflo offers its customers both products from its own catalogue and those “tailor-made” – strictly adjusted to customer needs. EFB spill containment berms are made of a special technical membrane with high chemical resistance and very high resistance to mechanical damage. EFB Standard model consists of two elements: a tank and separate cantilevers. The EFB Compact is a version where the cantilevers are integrated with the whole. EFB Mini, on the other hand, is a group of flexible tubs that can be easily adapted to the shelves of chemical storage racks, etc. They are handy, small and, above all, thanks to the use of a special membrane, their production is inexpensive, as no mould or pattern is required to start with, as it is the case of hard plastic baths. A special proposal is the IBC Berm model, in which a large capacity (up to 1100 l) is accumulated on a small area. Thanks to the use of a pallet (steel or wooden), it is possible to move the IBCs together with the bath. The appropriate dimensions provide 110% capture capacity.

All models are available in two versions: Basic -a basic one, and Plus – which mechanical parameters are nearly 70% higher and for this reason it is recommended as spill containment berms, which will be in use by storage vehicles and cisterns.
