How can I safely store chemicals and abrasive fluids?

By Larry King, The IFH Group

Storage and dispensing of chemicals and abrasive fluids such as Heat Transfer Fluid, Rust inhibitors, Ethylene Glycol, Glygoyle 30 and Anti-Freeze can be a problem for the lube room maintenance engineer. How to do it safely and efficiently?

One solution is a Special Product Package designed for applications involving chemicals and abrasive fluids that require special handling. Designed by the IFH Group, the standard PVC sight gauge on the front of the steel containers is replaced with a Glass Sight Gauge equipped with ball check fittings at both ends. Underneath the containers are 3/4″ NPT fittings and Flex Steel Hose for resistance to fluids that may damage the PVC hose on standard IFH systems.

The Special Product Package can be supplied with new IFH fluid storage and dispensing systems or as a retrofit to existing systems. The engineering time involved in the customization process is completely cost free. No extra charges are incurred for special designs, only for additional special equipment.
