The Justrite steel plunger safety can is made of galvanized steel and used to store, transport, and dispense flammable liquids safely, and has a pump assembly with a dasher plate and a flame arrester. The can is made of 24-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). The red powder-coated finish resists scratches, chipping, fading, and other wear. The dasher plate dispenses a small amount of liquid when pushed, enabling the user to moisten a sponge or rag for cleaning. A flame arrester helps prevent liquids inside the can from igniting and keep flames from spreading. A molded protector along the top rim helps prevent hands from getting scraped. The dasher plate measures 2-3/4 inches in diameter. This product is FM Approved as a safety can used for handling flammable liquids in quantities of five gallons or less.
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.
