The water supply connection for the deluge sprinkler, floor flushing system and the discharge piping connection are located at the left or right rear corner of the unit. They can be supplied with threaded, flanged or grooved fittings.
Integration into facility’s fire alarm system is determined by client’s safety philosophy. For example, in the case of a spill without a fire and flushing/suction is activated, the client can decide whether to have the unit trigger the facility’s fire alarm, have a signal sent to appropriate personnel, or have a signal activate from the unit.
The IBC Dispensing Unit will need to be connected through piping to an external containment tank. The tank will be used to contain any removed liquids, and in case of a fire, sprinkler water. Sizing of the external containment tank should be based on the following:
In case the facility does not have this containment capacity, a simple and quick solution could be to use a frac tank for containment; providing 21,000 gallons of additional capacity. New frac tanks are readily available at approximately $23,000 and used frac tanks are approximately $10,000-$15,000.
A simple water remediation system can be installed to separate water from hydrocarbons creating permittable contaminant levels and significantly reducing disposal costs. A typical water remediation system used for hydrocarbon-based liquids can cost approximately $15,000.
