Installing and maintaining spill pallets correctly

All companies using spill pallets are also required to keep them in good condition. As with any other work equipment, the function of the sump (as well as the collection volume required in the application) must be guaranteed at all times. Necessary maintenance measures must be carried out or defects must be remedied immediately.

In general, ensuring the correct installation of a spill pallet will provide you with a reliable product for a longer period, because in most cases damage occurs as a result of improper handling.

In our overview below we discuss most important things you should consider when installing and maintaining spill pallets.

What you need to know about the installation and maintenance of spill pallets

As with any other work equipment, the function of a spill pallet (as well as the containment volume prescribed in the application) must be guaranteed at all times. Necessary maintenance measures must be carried out immediately and any defects found must be rectified immediately.

So much for your general operator obligations - as a user, you are naturally wondering how to proceed in concrete terms. Specific information on the proper installation and maintenance of spill pallets can be found in the German Steel Spill Pallet Regulation (StawaR). This regulation applies to steel spill palletswith a volume of up to 1,000 litres. Plastic spill pallets are considered an unregulated construction product in Germany. At DENIOS, they have a general building authority approval from the Institute for Building Technology (DIBt). Regulations for installation and maintenance are specified therein.

In general, you can do a lot to ensure that the product will provide you with reliable service for a long time, even when installing the spill pallet. In the vast majority of cases, damage occurs as a result of improper handling. In our checklist, we have compiled the most important things you should consider when installing and maintaining spill pallets.

What if the inspection shows that the spill pallet is no longer functional?

If you find that a plastic spill pallet is significantly impaired in its functionality, it must be removed from service in accordance with DIBt specifications. Steel spill pallets may generally be repaired after damage that impairs their functionality - however, they must then be subjected to a new leak test by the manufacturer or by a specialist company in accordance with the Water Resources Act (Wasserhaushaltsgesetz) pursuant to § 62 AwSV. If you compare the repair costs with the costs of a new purchase, it is usually much more economical to replace the old spill pallet with a new one. In addition, the period of time during which you have to ensure the safe storage of your hazardous substances with an alternative solution is much shorter.
