Environmental protection and employee safety are top among growing concerns in today’s workplace. As a result, many municipalities now require that bulk lubricants have full containment around the tanks in which they are stored. Even bulk tanks that are stored indoors are now being required to have full 110% containment of their tank capacity.
For years, the only options to satisfy containment requirements were replacing single-wall tanks with double-wall steel tanks or building containments around single-wall tanks. Containments are not only costly, but they take days or weeks to install and they require large footprints. Double-wall steel tanks are still a solid option, but their weight and lack of mobility can become an issue when a double-wall tank needs to be installed in a difficult-to-reach location.
A new product is available today from Roth Industries… please see the attached sell sheet. Roth tanks are double-wall bulk storage tanks for new lubricants, used lubricants, and antifreeze that consist of a poly inner tank and a steel outer casing that satisfies containment requirements.
Unlike steel tanks, Roth tanks can be easily carried and set by a couple of adults without the need of a forklift and/or crane. Roth tanks can also be outfitted with optional accessories including mounts for reels and pumps, tank gauges, tie-down kits, leak indicators, and covers for outdoor use. Roth tanks can often be more economical than steel tanks.
Please note that Roth tanks are not made to replace long-trusted steel tanks; however, they do provide another option when bulk containment of fluids is an issue.
Roth tanks come in the following sizes:
