The Justrite Centura polyethylene quick-disconnect disposal safety can is used to temporarily store liquid waste and has a spout for filling and pouring and two quick-disconnect fittings to facilitate the flow of solvent into the can through tubing. A latch on the handle locks open the spout cap for pouring. The can is made of polyethylene, which weighs less than steel and is resistant to dents, heat, and certain chemicals, and it is translucent, allowing the liquid level to be viewed at a glance. A stainless steel flame arrester helps prevent liquids inside the can from igniting and keeps flames from spreading. The cap assembly opens automatically to vent internal vapors. The can contains O-rings that are made of EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer) rubber, which is resistant to heat, water, and wear. This product complies with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Standard 1910.106 for the safe storage and handling of flammable liquids.
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.
