Keys To Capturing Hazardous Spills From Railroad Tanker Cars
Our Rail Track Pan Systems have been designed to provide railroad spill containment at industrial rail sidings and locomotive maintenance facilities.
- Available in virtually any length, Our Track Pans may be used to collect small spills and leaks OR to capture and channel off significant spills caused by defective equipment or a major overflow.
- Prevent costly cleanup and regulatory fines from railcar spills and chemical spills.
- Modular Track Pan design can be customized to meet your specific railroad spill containment needs.
- An economical, easy to install railroad spill solution.
Long work life – Estimated to perform 20-30 years.
- Modular design – Center and Side Pans are 53.5″ long; railroad spill containment areas can be easily assembled to any length desire
- All-polyethylene construction – Rugged Track Pans withstand harsh chemicals and are designed to function in temperatures ranging from -40°F to +140°F
- Sealed System – Polyethylene gaskets keep spills from falling between the rails and Pans.
- Trucks and other vehicles can drive over Track Pans with grates in place (NOTE: To drive over Track Pans, firm footing must be beneath the Pans; also must “ramp up” to Side Pans with asphalt or concrete)
- Below grade piping – All Center and Side Track Pans are molded with pipe fitting locators at their lowest point. Below grade piping can be installed to channel large spills to oil/water separators, holding ponds, etc. More info.
- Unique stormwater feature is designed to eliminate “pooling” of rain that falls on top of the Center Pan Covers; rain is channeled onto the ballast between the tracks, stays out of the Pans.
- Low Maintenance – unlike carbon steel track pans, Ultra-Track Pans will not rust or corrode. Polyethylene resin is treated with a UV inhibitor, resists degrading effects of the sun.
- Low Cost Installation — Lightweight Track Pans can be easily installed without heavy lifting equipment, i.e., forklifts, cranes, backhoes, etc. Minimal tools and labor required.
- Slip Resistant Surfaces – Pans, grates and covers have been designed with safety in mind. All top surfaces resist slips when wet or oily.
- Optional Track Pan Covers keep rainwater out of the Pans, providing effective stormwater management.
- Polyethylene Covers are left in place until the railcar(s) arrive to be off-loaded or loaded. Lightweight covers mechanically lock into the polyethylene decking and will not blow off in windy conditions.
