A prepackaged pumping and storage system for the collection and temporary containment of hazardous land spills was designed and two models developed. Each model includes a pump, hoses, furled self-deploying 26,500 l (7000 gal) capacity plastic bag array all mounted on a pallet for transporting by pickup truck. The first model also includes batteries, electric motor, and starter, while the improved second model carries a gasoline-powered pump engine and fuel. Nominal pumping rates are 200 and 300 lpm (50 and 80 gpm). Commercially available components were specified. The effect of pump speed, fluid viscosity, and vapor pressure on flowrate were determined. Polyurethane diking possibilities were also investigated. System demonstrations are described.
