SCHÜTZ DSL is set to take part in this year's Hazmat Conference, which is being held on May 25-26 at the Crown Entertainment Complex in Melbourne, Australia.
The two day conference will specifically target groups working within the industrial chemicals, hazardous substances and dangerous goods sector, with particular focus being given to important safety and regulatory issues.
SCHÜTZ Ecobulk IBCs (Intermediate Bulk Containers) are proving an increasingly popular choice for the storage and packaging of many dangerous goods - a move that has encouraged the company to attend the conference and showcase the range of products specifically designed to meet the rigours of this specialised market.
The 1000L units are now used extensively across Australia and parts of Asia for many liquid dangerous goods, such as chemicals, solvents and other hazardous products. The units are UN approved for the packaging of dangerous goods in groups II and III.
The specialised Ecobulk SX-EX IBC, designed to dissipate potential electrostatic charge, will be on display at the conference.
This unit is recommended for storage and handling conditions where there is a risk of flammable gas or vapour being released into the air, particularly flammable Hazard Zones I and II.
The Ecobulk SX-EX is certified for use in hazard zones 1 and 2 providing electrostatic protection via the "SX" metal cladding around the IBC bottle and the earthing wire ("Ex") running from the discharge valve to the metal based pallet.
The Ecobulk SX-EX is also available with the new SCHÜTZ security layer technology, which dramatically decreases the permeation of odours and gases of the product into the atmosphere and significantly increases the barrier to oxygen.
The technology involves the application of as many as six different protective layers within the blow moulding process of the HDPE (high density polyethelene) IBC inner bottles.
The three layer option consists od a thin third outer layer in addition to the two layers of PE (polyethelene). This provides UV protection, as well as being a conductive or non-chargeable outer layer, which is designed specifically for products where there is a risk of flammable gas or vapour being released into the atmosphere.
SCHÜTZ DSL manufactures the Ecobulk range of IBCs from Melbourne in Australia and Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia. Refurbishing facilities are also located in Perth and Brisbane with other office locations and full service support in Sydney, Auckland and Jakarta.
All units include worldwide collection, storage, laundering and recycling.
