IBC Containment Unit
The composite Intermediate Bulk Container (IBC) Containment Unit is used to store single ignitable liquid composite IBCs when located within manufacturing, process areas, small storage or similar environments.
The fire protection containment unit is intended to capture an ignitable liquid release within a footprint designed to limit the size of a potential pool fire. The Model 275 and Model 330 containment units have a capacity of up to 150% of their model volume. Containing the majority of released ignitable liquid prevents the formation of a spreading fire. Limiting the size of the pool surface within the unit reduces the heat release rate of the fire thereby mitigating damage within an occupancy. There is also the capacity to accommodate additional water or foam solution discharged by a sprinkler or deluge system in the protected area.
Typical fields of application include chemical industries, pharmaceutical plants, automotive plants, paint manufacturing, wood processing and warehousing operations.
