Ultra Spill Deck Assembly Video


The Ultra-Spill Decks are one of UltraTech
top selling product categories. And, while their assembly and use is fairly
straight forward, there are some details that warrant some additional attention. That is the purpose of this video. Standard Ultra-Spill Deck modules connect
to each other via bulkhead fittings. These fitting serve a dual purpose, they secure
separate Spill Deck modules together and they allow spills to travel from one Deck to another. Spill Decks can be pre-drilled at the factory
at no additional cost, but if there are units that require holes to be drilled onsite, the
process is fairly easy. Using a holesaw kit (p/n 0960) and a drill,
simply cut a hole in the sidewall of the Deck by using the recessed locators as a guide. Debur the sides of the hole with a file or
a flame. Repeat this process with any other Spill Deck
that will be connected. When connecting Spill Deck with bulkhead fittings,
unscrew the nut keeping in mind that it has left-handed threads. Remove the nut, hard plastic washer and rubber
washer from the fitting. Remove the grating from the two Spill Decks
to be connected and place them close to each other with the holes lined up. Insert the bulkhead fitting through one of
the decks. Place the rubber washer over the fitting,
then move the other Spill Deck so the fitting goes through its sidewall. Place the hard plastic washer on the fitting
and then hand tighten the nut. A wrench may be used if desired but do not
overtighten. T-strips cover the gap between connected Spill
Decks, preventing liquids from spilling between the units. In the case where a hole has been drilled
but no longer needed, there are two solutions. If a bulkhead fitting is already installed
or available, the Decks can be taken apart, the bulkhead fitting reinstalled in the single
Deck and then a plug (p/n 9960) can be screwed into the inner threads of the bulkhead fitting. This is a good option if you
would like to be able to easily drain your Spill Deck. If a bulkhead fitting is not available, or
a more flush-mounted solution is desired, a sidewall plug (p/n 2221) can be used. Unscrew the bolt to take the plug apart. Take the black plastic component and the black
rubber washer and hold them in place on the inside of the Spill Deck sump. Screw the steel bolt and flat washer into
place on the outside of the sump. The loading ramp is an option that can be
used for drum dollies or other handling equipment. The ramp uses two steel clips that secure
it to the Spill Deck. Simply line up the ramp with the Spill Deck,
then, using the included screws, secure the clips to the top of the ramp. The Spill Deck Bladder Systems use a bladder
attachment to add 66-gallons of containment and meet EPA and SPCC requirements. The Bladder Attachment is not installed when
the system is shipped. To install, first carefully cut the label
holding the bladder attachment closed. Next reach in with one hand and hold the part
of the bulkhead fitting inside of the bladder. Unscrew the nut (left-hand threads) and remove
it from the fitting. Leave the washer in place. Put the bulkhead fitting through the hole
in the Spill Deck sidewall. Hold the bulkhead fitting against the Spill
Deck wall with one hand. With the other hand, screw the nut on to secure
the two components together. Carefully cut the rubber bands that are around
each end of the bladder. Do not try and remove the rubber bands, just
leave them in place. Close the door and make sure that it swings
freely. Replace the Spill Deck grating and the system
is now ready for use. Ultra-Spill Decks and Ultra-Spill Deck Bladder
Systems are very versatile and effective spill containment products. Knowing and understanding all the options,
accessories and configurations available with them will insure that they are used to their
fullest capabilities.
