Universal has announced that a number of their spill containers will now be available in both stainless and E-coated carbon steel. This new feature will be available for the 70C and 72 Series spill containers and the 71SC below grade containers. In addition, the 70CD container (with drain valve) will be available in stainless steel. Proven to last longer than buckets made of poly material, the steel buckets are also repairable without removing the spill container.
In light of new EPA guidelines, Universal Valve Co. has forwarded details about several of their compliance products, designed to be easy to remove for testing without damaging the components attached to them, as well as to reliably protect against water intrusion.
Due to new EPA guidelines, all spill containers are required to be tested before being put into service. All Universal spill containers, both single and double wall, are made with a metal construction, which is found to be 40% more durable than containers made of polyethylene. In addition to the increased durability, the Universal containers can be removed easier when being replaced, without breaking concrete, allowing for quicker repair.
Overfill Protection Valves
Universal overfill valves are designed to be easily removable without damaging the float on which they’re attached. With only a single moving part, they are among the most reliable valves on the market. This is convenient due to the frequent testing required by EPA regulations (every 3 years at minimum). The Model 49 valve is also the only UL approved device on the market compatible with both gravity and pressure fill products.
Sump Retrofit Lids
Universal’s retrofit sump lids allow for both fast, easy installation in under 30 minutes per sump and maximum protection against water intrusion. Offered in various standard sizes as well as custom sizes, the lids feature a double seal as well as an inspection port for simplified testing.
