The Justrite 28680 spill control funnel has a 21" diameter and is used for pouring nonflammable liquids into closed-head 30- and 55-gallon drums (sold separately). The funnel is black and made of polyethylene, which weighs less than steel and is resistant to dents, heat, and certain chemicals. The funnel's scalloped shape helps reduce splashing. A large, flat well at the throat of the funnel facilitates the passive draining of paint cans, buckets, or other containers. An integrated hook can be used to hang a funnel cover (sold separately) for storage. The funnel measures 3-1/4 inches high and 21 inches in diameter and has a capacity of 2.5 gallons. UL Environment has validated that this product contains 100% recycled content.
Hazardous storage cans are used to safely store, transport, and dispense flammable or hazardous liquids. They are typically made of polyethylene, 24-gauge galvanized steel, or 24-gauge stainless steel. (Gauge is a measure of thickness; the lower the gauge, the thicker the material.) Hazardous storage cans come in a variety of styles, such as Type I cans, which have a single spout for filling and pouring, and Type II cans, which have a flexible metal hose for pouring and a second opening for filling. They are often color-coded for different liquids (for instance, red cans for gasoline, blue cans for kerosene, yellow cans for diesel fuel, or green cans for oil). Other common features include flame arrestors, which help prevent the liquid inside the can from igniting, and seam welds, which help prevent leaks. Certain hazardous storage cans are FM Approved, and many meet National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards for the storage and handling of flammable liquids. Hazardous storage cans are used in a variety of commercial and industrial environments and can also be suitable for home use.
Justrite manufactures safety equipment to store, transfer, use, and dispose of hazardous materials. The company, founded in 1906, is headquartered in Des Plaines, IL.
