StarTrack® Rail Car Spill Containment System
The StarTrack® system is an impressive, heavy-duty, railcar containment system engineered to meet specific requirements in either permanent or temporary applications. StarTrack® is surface mounted, and can be installed without moving rails.
StarTrack® systems are manufactured from high strength, corrosion resistant fiberglass. Each system consists of sets of three, low profile, 4″ high x 20′ long pans. A complete set protects a section of track 20′ long by 10′ wide. The center pan contains approximately 250 gallons. The two outrigger pans provide approximately 125 gallons each.
Each of the pans in a three pan set is connected to the other two pans via a 6″ manifold system which carries spilled material to one side of the track. There a six inch pipe running parallel to the track carries the spill into a holding pond for processing.. The only site disruption is the laying of the 6″ manifold between the rail ties every 20′. In almost every case rail ties do not have to be moved. The STAR TRACK® pans are surface mounted on top of the ties and under the rail crown. Disregarding weather hold-ups the actual installation for this project took approximately two days to complete. Installation may be completed by the customers staff or by Polystar’s technicians.
