Secondary Containment Solutions Overview

C.I.Agent Solutions® manufactures custom Secondary Containment Solutions and Oil Containment Systems that have been used in over 10,000 installs to meet and exceed SPCC Compliance Regulations.


There are many types of Secondary Containment including earth and berms, spray liners, concrete walls, fabricated walls, secondary containment booms, etc. Each has its strengths and weaknesses, risks and tradeoffs, therefore it is very important that the secondary containment method chosen is PE approved for a particular site – one secondary containment solution does not fit all. There are also different types of oil being used/stored, as in the case of FR3, a natural ester fluid, in transformers.

C.I.Agent Solutions® is meticulous in working with consulting and company engineers to design the secondary containment solution that best fits the site. We have several spill containment solutions including C.I.Agent® Oil Filtration Wall Systems, Geomembrane Liner with Oil Filtration Panels Systems, HFF Oil Stop Valve Systems and VIPOR System; all are custom engineered and site specific. And, we can enhance other secondary oil containment solutions by adding C.I.Agent Oil Filtration Panels to composite walls, or utilize an HFF Oil Stop Valve, or VIPOR System to retrofit concrete containment.

Unheard of in our industry, we are so confident in the performance of all of our secondary containment solutions that we back them with Environmental Pollution and Product Liability insurance coverage of up to $7 million. How can we be so confident? It all starts with the technology at the core of our solutions, our flagship product C.I.Agent® Solidifying Polymers.

C.I.Agent® Oil Filtration Walls for Secondary Containment

X

Oil Filtration Walls for Secondary Containment

This secondary containment system relies on gravity (head pressure). C.I.Agent Oil Filtration Panel hydrocarbon stopping power is provided by C.I.Agent Solidifying Polymers and the unique combination of materials and construction processes. It is installed in a vertical position in a to-grade or dike application. The C.I.Agent Oil Filtration Walls meet or exceed the requirements of Secondary Containment for EPA SPCC 40 CFR 112.7, U.S.D.A. Bulletin 1724E-302, Chapter 3-3.2.2 and 3.2.3, and IEEE Std. 980.

We are so confident in the performance of our C.I.Agent® Oil Filtration Walls Secondary Containment Solutions that we back it with Environmental Pollution and Product Liability insurance coverage of up to $7 million.

C.I.Agent Geomembrane Liner Secondary Containment

X

Geomembrane Liner Secondary Containment System

C.I.Agent® Oil Filtration Panels can be embedded in the walls of the Geomembrane Liner to allow the flow of rain water and then become an oil containment barrier to prevent hydrocarbon migration in the event of an oil release. This system relies on gravity (head pressure). The Geomembrane base is pre-fabricated at the factory to site-specific requirements, and comes with preformed outer corners. All installation supplies are provided. The C.I.Agent Geomembrane Liner or Geomembrane Liner with Oil Filtration Panels meets or exceeds the requirements of Secondary Containment for EPA SPCC 40 CFR 112.7, U.S.D.A. Bulletin 1724E-302, Chapter 3-3.2.2 and 3.2.3, and IEEE Std. 980. A C.I.Agent Geomembrane Liner can also provide redundancy protection when combined with additional solutions, such as the VIPOR Pump System or an HFF Oil Stop Valve.

We are so confident in the performance of our C.I.Agent® Geomembrane Liner with Oil Filtration Panels Secondary Containment Solutions that we back them with Environmental Pollution and Product Liability insurance coverage of up to $7 million.

C.I.Agent® Agent-X

X

Agent-X component of a secondary containment system

This hybrid creates a filtration fabric that encapsulates hydrocarbons and forces them to unsaturated areas of the fabric. It is hydrophobic, which allows water to pass through it, and oleophilic to solidify hydrocarbons upon contact.

Agent-X can be used as a component of a total secondary containment system, but is NOT recommended for full secondary containment. Recommended uses include a quick and cost effective solution for under equipment, change out storage areas, and for mobile transformers to catch drip and drops.

C.I.Agent® HFF Oil Stop Valve for Secondary Containment

X

HFF oil stop valve for secondary containment

In the event of a major release, the HFF Oil Stop Valve will automatically shut off the flow of water to contain the oil, providing a cost-effective and environmentally friendly solution for your secondary containment needs while meeting Federal SPCC mandates.

The HFF Oil Stop Valve uses C.I.Agent® Solidifying Polymer technology along with other unique materials and manufacturing processes. Each HFF Oil Stop Valve is custom designed for site specific applications and flow rates. It is ideal for storm drain inserts, electrical substations, stormwater run-off, bulk storage tank farms rain water out-falls, contaminated cooling tower water, retention pond out-flows, oil-water separator out-falls and more. All HFFs feature high flow rates and come with a pre-filter to capture debris and silt and keep maintenance low.

We are so confident in the performance of our C.I.Agent® HFF Oil Stop Valve Solution that we back it with Environmental Pollution and Product Liability insurance coverage of up to $7 million.

C.I.Agent Hydro Sheen Filter

X

portable secondary containment system in use

The state-of-the-art Hydro Sheen Filter utilizes the technology of C.I.Agent® Agent-Q (US Patent 8,986,822), a high-strength, lightweight hydrophilic spunbond, non-woven fabric with C.I.Agent® Oil Solidifying Polymers embedded between quilted layers.

Wastewater flows freely through the filter while capturing light to heavy sheen. During the filtration process, a C.I.Agent® Hydrocarbon Detection Strip is placed against the skin of the outer skin of the filter. The strip will turn a darker color when the filter is spent and needs to be changed. A zinc strip is placed on the filter to prevent growth of algae and mold. The Hydro Sheen Filter can be installed easily over threaded or non-threaded outlet pipe. The accompanying pre-filter fits nicely onto the inside discharge drain.
