The Justrite 28222 Aerosolv aerosol can disposal system is used to puncture and relieve pressure from aerosol cans, enabling them to be recycled rather than treated as solid hazardous waste, and includes an automatic shutoff mechanism and a padlock. The system can thread into a two-inch bung on a 30- or 55-gallon drum (sold separately) to collect residual liquids. A non-sparking, piercing pin punctures the can so that the liquid can flow directly into the drum. A combination coalescing carbon filter removes volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from residual propellants and converts liquids to droplets to facilitate drainage. A signal indicates when the activated carbon cartridge is saturated and ready for replacement. An automatic lockout and shutoff mechanism seals the system and the drum when not in use to prevent hazardous vapors from escaping. A padlock and key help prevent unauthorized use. The system is coated with PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene), which is resistant to wear and corrosion. It can accommodate aerosol cans up to 8-1/2 inches high. This product complies with U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulation 40 CFR 261.23(a)(6) concerning hazardous waste.
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.
