Can you reuse a bladder?
No. Spilled liquids will more than likely cause the internal surfaces of the bladder to adhere to each other. We cannot guarantee the proper deployment of a reused bladder.
How do you get spillage out of the sump / bladder?
We recommend using a pump (UltraTech part# 2345 can be used) to remove any spilled contents from a sump or bladder. (Note: spillage should be pumped into an approved container)
How does the ramp connect to the decks?
The Spill Deck Ramp (part# 1089) comes complete with two steel clips that quickly install on the end of the ramp. These clips hook onto the connecting Spill Deck and keep the ramp from moving or shifting during loading or unloading.
I need to add another Spill Deck to the one I already have. How do I do that? What do I need?
Other than the Spill Deck, you’ll need one Bulkhead Fitting (part# 1073) and one T-Strip (part# 1131) for every 26” of Spill Deck length that is connected. For example if you’re connecting a 4-Drum Spill Deck to another 4-Drum Spill Deck you would need two Bulkhead Fittings and two T-Strips. If, on the other hand, you were connecting a 1-Drum Spill Deck to the short end of a 2-Drum Spill Deck, you would only need one each of the Bulkhead Fitting and T-Strip.
Is the deck slip resistant?
Yes, all grating surfaces on the Spill Decks are slip resistant.
What does a T-strip do?
The T-Strips lay across the point where two Spill Decks come together. By “bridging the gap” this piece diverts spills to either of the Decks and keeps any spillage from getting between the units.
Does the Ultra-Spill Deck’s sump capacity meet regulations?
(Note: The answer to this question is based on one assumption: That the Spill Decks are being used with 55-gallon drums). All of the Spill Deck Inline models meet EPA requirements.
What is the size of the grating?
All Spill Decks Inline Models use a grating that is 48"L x 24"W x 2.5"H or 24"L x 24"W x 2.5"H .
I need to replace my bladder. What should I order? What's the difference between a Replacement Bladder and a Bladder Attachment?
The Replacement Bladder (part# 6340) is what you would need to order. It is just the Bladder and does not include the outer housing. The Bladder Attachment (part# 2317) includes a Bladder and the outside housing.
How much space is necessary for the Bladder to completely unfurl?
The Bladder will roll out 65.5" away from the deck and will be 66" wide when completely unfurled.
