The Justrite 8208 safety drum funnel has a self-closing cover, is made of galvanized steel, and is used for pouring viscous liquids into closed-head 30- and 55-gallon drums (sold separately). In case of fire, a fusible link melts at 165 degrees F to automatically close the cover and extinguish flames. A brass flame arrester helps prevent liquids inside the funnel from igniting and keeps flames from spreading. A 33-inch, open-end brass tube helps direct liquid flow. The funnel is made of 18-gauge galvanized steel, which is resistant to rust, dents, and certain chemicals. Gauge is a measure of thickness (the lower the gauge, the thicker the material). A powder-coated finish resists scratches, chipping, fading, and other wear. This product is FM Approved. It complies with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations for the handling and storage of 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.
