The water supply connection for the deluge sprinkler, floor flushing system, and the discharge piping connection are located at the left rear corner of the unit and can be supplied with a thread, flanged or grooved fitting.
When the IBC Storage Unit detects a fire and the deluge system is activated, a signal should be sent to the facility’s fire alarm system. Depending on the fire alarm system set up, the water supply for the flushing system can be connected to the site’s water supply to prevent the facility’s fire alarm from activating in the case of a spill without a fire in the unit.
The IBC storage unit will need to be connected through piping to an external containment tank. The tank will be used to contain any pumped spilled liquids, and in case of a fire, sprinkler water. Sizing of the external containment tank should be based on the following:
In case the facility does not have this containment capacity, a simple and quick solution could be to use a *frac tank as containment, which provides a capacity of 21,000 gallons. New frac tanks are readily available at approximately $23,000, used frac tanks are approximately $10,000-$15,000.
In case clients are concerned about disposal costs for the contents of the containment tank, a simple water remediation system can be installed to separate water from hydrocarbons to permittable contaminant levels, significantly reducing disposal costs. A typical water remediation system used for hydrocarbon based liquids is approximately $15,000.
