The Justrite 28227 Aerosolv dual-compliant 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 it comes with a drum cover and an under-drum pan to facilitate berming and staging. The system can thread into a two-inch bung on a 30- or 55-gallon drum (sold separately) to collect residual liquids. An automatic 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. This product complies with U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulation 40 CFR 261.23(a)(6) and California Senate Bill 1158 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.
