What Containers are Safe for Motor Oil?
There are three standard storage options:
1. Polyethylene Containers
Polyethylene is a flexible form of thermoplastic that can last years, especially when equipped with a proper liner. Unlike other storage options, you can see the line of the oil from the outside of the container, so you know when you are close to the top. Plastic also makes labeling easier.
2. Stainless Steel Containers
Stainless steel containers are a secure option. Because it is stainless steel, the metal won’t rust or rot. The durability of the steel makes the container less likely to sustain damage that might lead to a leak.
3. Tote Containers
Tote containers would be easy to carry, such as a pail or a small drum. Some come with a steel grate that is easy to grip.
You can make any of these choices stronger and safer by using a bag-in-a-box solution. The bag is a flexible liner designed to fit the specific container shape and size. The box is the container. This winning combination allows you peace of mind when you store motor oil. CDF Corporation offers drum and pail semi-rigid solutions that will give you that extra security you need to feel safe.
