Our 13′ wide system is the ideal containment system for the 2,500 Gallon HEMTT Fuel Tanker used for Forward-Arming and Refuleing Points. For other Tanker Containment requirements our minimum lengths for Tri-Star MAX Spill Containment System is 21′ or 3 panels and can be expanded as desired based on vehicle size and capacity requirements. Please visit our Tri-Star MAX – 7′ x 13′ x 9″ Panel or our Tri-Star MAX – 7′ x 16′ x 9″ Panel for custom lengths.
Our surface-mounted, modular, drive-in Tri-Star MAX containment system has standardized widths for tankers of 13′ wide and 16′ wide and is assembled with 7′ length panels. Designed for fuel or chemical trucks with large containment requirements. The Tri-Star MAX’s modular design supports custom lengths, and allows this heavy-duty steel system to be shipped over the highways or even overseas in shipping containers!
Constructed of heavy plate steel panels, and featuring the proven tri-linear wall design, thousands of Tri-Star MAX systems have been employed in military applications for more than ten years now without a single reported wall failure. Each panel is fully encapsulated in a heavy fiberglass (with glass mat) protective coating, many times thicker than any paint, to provide maximum protection over the long haul. The sump is comprised of horizontal panels with overlapping seams which are bolted together to compress a gasket/caulk sealant for a watertight surface. Various gasket/caulk materials can be used for compatibility with various fuel and chemical exposures. Each system is completed with drain ports in all four corners, and filter berms with ball valves for rainwater management. Systems include tie-downs to anchor the structure to the substrate and Line-of-Sight Poles to assist drivers entering and exiting the systems.
For other size tankers our minimum lengths for systems is 21′ or 3 panels and can be expanded as desired based on vehicle size and capacity requirements.
“X” Ramps extend out for the ramp peak 3ft in both directions, 6ft total. These ramps are sufficient for most military tanker trucks.
“XX”extends out from the ramp peak 5ft in both directions, 10ft total. Large AF R-11 refuelers and most large commercial refuelers are comfortable with this ramp.
“XXX” Ramp extends out from the ramp peak 8ft in both directions, 16ft total. This ramp is occasionally used for very large refuelers, or situations where site conditions dictate a longer ramp.
