SAFEBULK®

Self Bunding Storage Tanks For Wide Chemical Range

  • BRITISH & EUROPEAN DESIGN STANDARD
  • 110% STANDARD BUND CAPACITY
  • DELIVERED, OFF-LOADED & BOLTED-DOWN
  • NO CIVIL BUND REQUIRED

SAFEBULK® from NIPLAST ® is a system of liquid chemical storage that provides secondary containment (also called bunding) to the primary chemical storage tank, but as an integral part of the same engineered product.

The primary NIPLAST® chemical storage tank is purchased with its own dedicated containment bund, the bund designed and constructed from the same corrosion resistant thermoplastic as specified for the tank. The bund is sized at 110% of the tank’s operating capacity and is designed to collect any tank overfill and protect the immediate environment from any spillage. SAFEBULK® systems accord with HSE guidelines on the bunding of tanks.

Product Specification

The most common SAFEBULK® system format is akin to a cup and saucer, in that a cylindrical vertical NIPLAST® tank is centrally located within a wider diameter bund.

The SAFEBULK® approach precludes the need to construct a civil built bund and its site installation is greatly reduced by the pre-engineering undertaken by NIPLAST® before delivery.

SAFEBULK specifications typically cover all aspects of chemical storage, generally including: Fill-line for road tanker discharge; valved outlet line through bund wall; extension to visual level indicator to allow contents to be assessed outside the bund; access manways and inspection ports; bund breach alarms; frost protection systems, weather covers; ladders and other tank access hardware.

As with NIPLAST ® tanks, SAFEBULK® systems are designed and manufactured to the British and European Standard BS EN 12573 and also to the fore-running German specification DVS 2205, using only the highest quality component materials available.

NIPLAST ® SAFEBULK® systems are constructed from the highest rated welding technique within that design code, ie. the butt fusion of extruded thermoplastic plates. High precision automated butt fusion machine welds ensure build integrity over design lives of 20 years. Third party employee certification to EN 13067 by The Welding Institute (TWI) underwrites that build integrity.
