Do Your Bunds Comply?
There are many rules and regulations regarding the storage of liquids in packages (e.g. up to 1000L IBC's), but if you are looking for a portable bund solution for a non-permanent storage situation a general rule of thumb to assist in selecting the appropriate bund is that it should contain either 110% of the largest container, or 25% of the total stored, whichever is greater.
|Total Being Stored||With 25% Rule||With 110% Rule||Suitable Bund|
|One IBC||1000L||250L||1100L||Single/Dual IBC Bund|
|Two IBC's||2000L||500L||1100L||Dual IBC Bund|
|One 205L Drum||205L||52L||226L||One/Two/Four Drum Bund|
|Two 205L Drums||410L||103L||226L||Two/Four Drum Bund|
|Four 205L Drum||820L||205L||226L||Four Drum Bund|
As shown in the table above, the 110% rule determines the minimum capacity for each storage situation in each example.
If you need a larger bund, say for several IBC's, our portable bunds are a possible option as they can be custom made to suit your requirements. These bunds are extremely portable, for example a 1.2 x 1.2m bund fits in a 500 x 500 x150mm carry bag when not erected. For further information on these please see our blog post "Portable spill bunds: the easy way to temporarily store drums".
