Frequently Asked Questions

How long do your IBC spill bund pallets last?

Our IBC sump pallets will give you many years of service if you follow our simple guidelines. They come with a 10 year guarantee so you can buy with confidence.

What’s the difference between standard or economy pallets?

Economy is perfect if you’re working to a tight budget and require a smaller range of chemical compatibility. The standard is compatible with all oils and 95% of chemicals, so is likely to be your most cost-effective option in the long-term. All sizes are available in either economy or standard.

Which chemicals are compatible with IBC containment pallets?

Our standard IBC bunds are designed to cope with a variety of environments - around 95% of all liquids can be stored. Please refer to our handy standard chemical resistance chart for a complete list of all compatible liquids and maximum temperatures. 

Our economy IBC pallets have a smaller range of chemical compatibility, please see our economy chemical resistance chart for a full list.

How do I safely draw liquid into a container?

Please adhere to the following safety guidelines. Do not overfill the container, leave the container when it’s being filled and ensure you’re wearing appropriate gloves. The filled container should not be removed from the IBC bund until you’ve made sure that the IBC valve is turned off and not leaking.

How do I maintain IBC spill bund pallets?

We strongly recommend carrying out visual inspections of the bund’s integrity on a monthly basis. The UK chemical safety legislation requires all bunds to pass a “bund integrity test” at least every 3 years. This helps to detect any risk of leaks or spils to keep your employees safe. Carry out monthly checks to stay compliant with the law, prevent leaks and ultimately save costs.  

Carry out a bund integrity test in 5 steps:

1. Visually inspect the IBC bund

Check for any sign of leaks or debris inside the bund. If you’re confident the bunds are empty, look for cracks or holes. 

2. Inspect the drain valve

Ensure the drain valve is firmly closed and that only authorised personnel are able to unlock it. Now, check if it can lock and unlock (the open and closed positions on the valve will be marked).

3. Check the pipework

All pipes and valves must be airtight and in good working order. 

4. Carry out a water test

Fill the IBC bunds with water. This tests the integrity of the walls and pipes/valves to ensure the bund can safely hold a high volume of liquid. 

If you can’t fill the whole bund with water, we recommend carrying out a reduced water level retention test. This will still check the strength of bund’s floor and wall joints.

5. Note all checks

Ensure you make notes in a safety log every time you carry out a test. This ensures other employees are aware of its maintenance status and will help cover you if legal action is ever taken.

How do I site the IBC bund pallet?

Keep the IBC spill pallet sited and fully supported on a flat uniform level surface. This should be strong and stable - free of stones and all other objects. If the site is uneven, we recommend using a bed of soft sand cement mix.

What are the loading guidelines?

Please ensure all forklift users are instructed to lower the IBC unit as carefully and as level as possible on the bund. Place the unit onto the recessed pads (avoiding lowering onto elevated surfaces). The forks should be withdrawn and free of snagging the IBC bund rim or any part of the unit.

Please also ensure that your forklift users know that the single bund is not square and that the unit must therefore be loaded at the correct angle. The unit’s nozzle should face towards the narrowest side (IBC bunds with a drain-off bucket facility cannot be loaded from the bucket side).

The unit should not be loaded onto the bund while it’s on the pallet.

What are the guidelines for moving the bund?

Two healthy personnel can comfortably lift the IBC bund. We recommend that it is moved onto a pallet and then moved by forklift.

Sensible lifting practices must be applied when handling:

Do not:

- Drag the IBC bund

- Forklift without a pallet

Under no circumstances should our IBC bunds be moved while accommodating an IBC unit.

What do I do if there’s a spillage?

Carry out cleanup immediately and neutralise the residual liquid. Please consult our health and safety datasheets and the health and safety officer. Dispose of waste in accordance with the manufacturer’s guidelines.

Please note that our IBC pallets are to be used for secondary containment of chemical spills only. They are not suitable for primary spillage (unless otherwise agreed in writing).
