Product Description

The Justrite AccuFlow type II galvanized steel safety can has a 9" long metal hose with a squeeze-trigger spout, a 3.5" stainless steel flame arrester, and an automatically venting leak-tight lid for storing and transporting gasoline, oil, kerosene, diesel, and other compatible flammable liquids. The 24-gauge galvanized steel can resists rust and corrosion. The flexible metal hose with squeeze-trigger spout helps provide controlled pouring. The stainless steel flame arrester is chemical and corrosion resistant, and helps to prevent the can’s contents from igniting. The gasketed lid is leak-tight, self-closing, and vents automatically, helping to reduce air blockages that can interrupt the flow of liquids as well as pressure build-up inside the can. The can's red color allows color coding to designate gasoline and other flammable contents. The warning label on the can has an area to add information. The fill port has an ergonomic handle that allows the port to be opened quickly. The can comes with an extra cap. This Justrite AccuFlow type II galvanized steel safety can meets standards set by FM Global (FM); Underwriters Laboratories (UL); Technical Inspection Association (TÜV), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA); Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasures (SPCC); and is designed in accordance with National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) code 30. When used according to manufacturer’s recommendations, this product is covered by a 10-year warranty against defects in workmanship or materials.

Hazardous storage cans are used to safely store, transport, and dispense flammable or hazardous liquids. They are typically made of polyethylene, 24-gauge galvanized steel, or 24-gauge stainless steel. (Gauge is a measure of thickness; the lower the gauge, the thicker the material.) Hazardous storage cans come in a variety of styles, such as Type I cans, which have a single spout for filling and pouring, and Type II cans, which have a flexible metal hose for pouring and a second opening for filling. They are often color-coded for different liquids (for instance, red cans for gasoline, blue cans for kerosene, yellow cans for diesel fuel, or green cans for oil). Other common features include flame arrestors, which help prevent the liquid inside the can from igniting, and seam welds, which help prevent leaks. Certain hazardous storage cans are FM Approved, and many meet National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards for the storage and handling of flammable liquids. Hazardous storage cans are used in a variety of commercial and industrial environments and can also be suitable for home use.
