Capture hazardous spills from railroad tanker cars with the Ultra-Track Pan. Ultra-Track Pans have been designed to provide railroad spill containment at industrial rail sidings and locomotive maintenance facilities. The modular design of Ultra-Track Pans can be used for spill control for everything from small drips during maintenance to catastrophic spills from tanker cars.
Available in virtually any length, Ultra-Track Pans may be used to collect small spills and leaks OR to capture and channel off significant spills caused by defective equipment or a major overflow. Rail Containment can prevent costly cleanup and regulatory fines from railcar spills and chemical spills. The modular Track Pan design can be customized to meet your specific railroad spill containment needs. Center and Side Ultra-Track Pans are 53.5″ long; railroad spill containment areas can be easily assembled to any length desired.
Ultra-Track Pans are an economical, easy to install railroad spill solution with a long work life – Estimated to perform 20-30 years. The Ultra-Track Pan features a low cost installation, the lightweight Track Pans can be easily installed without heavy lifting equipment, i.e., forklifts, cranes, backhoes, etc. Minimal tools and labor required. For improved drainage, Ultra-Track Pans can be fitted with below grade piping – All Center and Side Track Pans are molded with pipe fitting locators at their lowest point. Below grade piping can be installed to channel large spills to oil/water separators, holding ponds, etc.
The durable construction of the Ultra-Track Pan allows trucks and other vehicles can drive over Track Pans with grates in place (NOTE: To drive over Track Pans, firm footing must be beneath the Pans; also must “ramp up” to Side Pans with asphalt or concrete)
Ultra-Track Pans feature an all-polyethylene construction, the rugged Track Pans withstand harsh chemicals and are designed to function in temperatures ranging from -40°F to +140°F. The design of Ultra-Track Pans is low maintenance, unlike carbon steel track pans, Ultra-Track Pans will not rust or corrode. Polyethylene resin is treated with a UV inhibitor, resists degrading effects of the sun.
Ultra-Track Pans offers great safety features as well, the pans, grates and covers have been designed with safety in mind. All top surfaces resist slips when wet or oily. The entire rail containment system is sealed to prevent leaks, polyethylene gaskets keep spills from falling between the rails and Pans. Unique stormwater feature is designed to eliminate “pooling” of rain that falls on top of the Center Pan Covers; rain is channeled onto the ballast between the tracks, stays out of the Pans.
