The 7 biggest mistakes when emptying spill pallets
It is not uncommon for liquids to leak and this can happen at any time. But what then? How does the liquid get out of the tray? This is not as trivial as it sounds: when emptying drip pans, serious mistakes can happen. Here you can find out what you should never do under any circumstances - and how to do it correctly.
Responding correctly in an emergency - Our Academy instructor shows how to
Tobias Authmann has a degree in biology and has been working for the DENIOS Academy for many years as a specialist for hazardous substance storage and occupational safety. In his practical training course "Leakage Emergency Training", he imparts the necessary know-how for avoiding and combating hazardous substance leaks. We talked to him about his experiences.
DENSORB® nonwovens are used in many areas of application. They often have to withstand a lot - for example, when they are permanently used as a highly absorbent underlay near the machine. Read here which load and quality tests are carried out in our in-house test laboratory.
Time and again we hear about oil spills on the water. In the general public, it is mainly the very large catastrophes that gain sad notoriety, but even on a supposedly small scale, oil spills can have catastrophic effects if they get into local waters. But how can companies take precautions? We answer the most important questions.
The first move after a spill is to contain the containment, stopping it from spreading to other parts of the premises or via drains into the environment. In doing this, you will not only protect your own workforce but also fulfil your responsibilities to the wider population and the environment. With the spill contained, it can then be cleaned completely and the substance disposed of in the appropriate manner. DENIOS stocks a wide range of spill protection equipment to enable you to achieve this.
Sealing an area
One action which may be necessary is to contain a spill in one room or area. Using a flood barrier to seal a doorway or provide a barrier can prevent a spill from spreading. Options include an aluminium barrier which can be placed across a doorway. To contain a larger spill, including one on a road, a chemical proof flexible seal will prevent the spill from spreading. Oil spills on water can have a devastating effect on plant and animal life, and a special seal like a DENSORB oil barrier is the most effective way to contain it.
Liquids draining away are a common way of contaminating the wider environment and effective drain seals are the best way to prevent this from occurring. DENIOS has a wide range of drain seals made from different materials such as the neoprene mat, a flexible seal for non-metal drains. If the cover may need to be driven over, a stronger material is likely to be required such as a steel drain cover. Not every spill is a large one, and in many cases, sealant plugs can be used to seal a pipe or drain and prevent hazardous materials from entering the environment.
Protection and prevention
If spillage is expected, there are a number of leakage management measures which can be taken to prevent a spill occurring in a way which leads it to damage a floor or contaminate the environment. A protective spray sleeve can be used at flanged pipe connections to prevent leakage, while drums and other containers can be placed onto a leakage sump to collect any leaks before they spread.
