MPE Wall Strut – 3′ H
MPE Wall Struts and MPE Corner Wall Struts are affixed to each other using our MPE Locking Post
3′ MPE Wall Struts can be used in conjunction with 3′ MPE Corner Wall Struts to create a surface-mounted spill containment system for Above-Ground Storage Tanks, Fracing and Shaling Operations, Fuel Stands and Stations, Fuel Bladders, Tank Farms, Liquid Terminals, Pipeline Pump Stations, Ponding Operations, Substations, and Mobile Fuel Stands for Refuelers.
MPE Wall Struts and MPE Corner Wall Struts are affixed to each other using our MPE Locking Post. Each Wall Strut has two large molded knuckles that interlock with two large molded knuckles from another wall strut. The Locking Post is then dropped through the four interlocked large molded knuckles to connect the walls.
The lightweight modular design of each strut makes it a breeze for two people to install the entire system without the use of any special lifting tools. The Wall Struts and Wall Corner Struts allow users to build systems out to any length and width based off of dimensional requirements of the primary containment vessel and spill capacity requirements. MPE Systems have been built to accommodate 1,000 gallons of spill capacity to 500,000 gallons of spill capacity. The DOD uses the system for containment of their 20k Fuel Bladder and 50k Fuel Bladder. Wall Struts are specifically designed to stack and nest for easy storage and transportation.
MPE Wall Struts are 4′ Long and 3′ High. We do offer a 1′ Foot Riser that can be attached to make a 4’ MPE Wall Strut or 4’ MPE Corner Wall Strut to convert the entire spill containment system to a 4′ High wall instead of a 3′ High wall. Note: 4’ Locking Post is used with the 4’ MPE Spill Containment System instead of a standard 3’ Locking Post.
Installation: Two Installers lift the MPE Wall Struts and the MPE Corner Wall Struts to their desired location. Locking Posts are used to affix the walls together. A custom liner is rolled out on top of the harness and draped over the end-walls. Finally, Liner Locks are used to clamp the liner securely to the top of the MPE Wall Strut
Note: When containing fuel bladders, a steel spider cable harness is stretched to all four ends of the system and D-ring connectors on the end of the harness are attach to custom slots molded into the MPE Wall Struts. Once the steel spider cable harness is securely attached and taut then the liner is placed on top of the harness.
The MPE Spill Containment System is a completely surface-mounted spill containment system and is not secured to a substrate. Instead the weight of the primary containment vessel and the liquid contained within it on top of the liner and cable harness make-up the primary anchor for the system. The MPE Walls heavy polyethylene construction along with the Locking Post connecting the walls ensures the perimeter walls are stationary, while the MPE Liner Locks ensure the Liner is locked securely in place and cannot be affected by the wind, foot traffic, spills, or any other forces. In case a spill should occur, the Steel Harness locks the base of the MPE Walls into place and the inward angle of the MPE Wall Strut ensures any liquid flows back into the middle of the system and not over the wall.
