Effortless Fluid Containment with HDT's Berms

The United States military is a complex organization of countless individuals carrying out specific duties daily. It may come as a surprise, but only 10% of the entire military force will engage in battle.

The military depends on a vast fleet of vehicles and equipment that need to be maintained regularly to ensure they’re up to snuff for when they’re needed most.

Naturally, these vehicles and machines are a bit more sophisticated than a standard SUV, and military mechanics require enhanced equipment to do their work.

One such piece of equipment is spill containment berms.

What is a Spill Containment Berm?

Spill containment berms are secondary containment products that stop harmful contaminates from spreading into soil, water, or other undesirable locations. One can think of spill containment berms as the pan mechanics use to catch old oil during an oil change, but on larger scale with more harmful liquids.

Spill containment berms are typically used for temporary jobs, like loading and unloading fuel tanks or repairing industrial machines that may leak during the process. However, their durability and versatility can make berms a viable long-term solution for certain jobs, like oil container storage or under permanent machinery that may leak during normal use.

Berms are vital not only for preventing messy spills – they’re also a safeguard against pollution. The Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure Regulations (SPCC) lays out specific guidelines that must be followed to ensure that small spills do not become major contaminators.

HDT’s Berms

The Throw N’ Go’s unique design allows the sidewalls to stay lowered during normal operation, reducing tripping hazards for operators. As fluid levels rise inside the berm, foam in the side walls help raise the walls above the fluid automatically to provide proper containment that meets the EPA and SPCC regulations.
