Contact us today to request more information about the ChlorTainer Total Containment System.

When it Comes to Chemical Safety,
be Proactive NOT Reactive!

ChlorTainer is the only proactive technology for preventing a chemical release.

If your organization uses gas or liquid chemicals, you know that they must be stored and handled with utmost care.

ChlorTainer is a high-pressure containment vessel into which a 1-ton or a 150-lb cylinder is processed. If the cylinder should leak, the gas or liquid is contained within the sealed vessel and processed at a normal rate.

ChlorTainer Testimonials

  • Ellis DeWell  - Assistant Plant Superintendent
    "Cost was a guideline and safety was our primary concern. 'Passive' was a selling point to me. It made a very important difference since we are governed by the EPA rules and regulations. The ChlorTainer has a preventative maintenance schedule which requires no special training or skills to complete."
    Ellis DeWell - Assistant Plant Superintendent
    Springfield, Ohio Water Treatment Plant
  • Chief Operator
    "With scrubbers costing a fortune as a means for containing any leaks, we went with gas cylinder containment vessels, and their associated equipment, as a preferred alternative. We’ve been pleased with the results for over 10 years now."

  • Jeremiah Kirchhofer - Water Operator
    Of the benefits ChlorTainers provide, Water Operator Jeremiah Kirchhofer says, “One of the biggest things is the reduced risk radius.”

  • Wayne Fujiwara - Plant Operator
    "Total Containment is easier [to use] than a scrubber. It does what is says it will do and we don't have to worry about leaks."
    Wayne Fujiwara - Plant Operator

  • Eric Laurin - Associate/Director
    Laurin describes the ChlorTainer approach of containment as “unique.” And, because ChlorTainer feeds the leaked chlorine back into the delivery system for disinfection, he calls its operation a “seamless part of the delivery system.”

  • Scott Rovenpera - Plant Superintendent
    "This technology single-handedly saves the chlorine gas industry, allowing us [at the water treatment site] to continue to use chlorine gas without having to convert to bleach as a disinfectant alternative."
    Scott Rovenpera - Plant Superintendent
    Benicia, California Water Treatment Plant
  • Wayne Lee - Superintendent Sludge Wastewater Treatment Plant
    "ChlorTainer was much preferred to a scrubber-type solution, which would require major building modifications. A scrubber system would also have required a six-member, trained response team to be available to deal with a leak within the building.  With the vessels, it is all done automatically, with minimal personal exposure.  And with two tanks for each gas, we don't have to suffer any plant process interruption if there is leak containment going on in one of them."

  • Paul Mariscal - Water Production Operations Supervisor
    "It’s pretty robust. If it lasted a hundred years, it wouldn’t shock me."

    City of Redlands, CA
  • Staff Representative
    "We don’t have the very significant operations and maintenance (O&M) burden there that we have for the scrubber system in the plant. The risk management plan (RMP) says we have to either treat any gas leaks or contain them, and the containment option, which requires very little attention, allows us to avoid time and availability from the 2 full-time plant operators to regularly maintain another scrubber system, to help assure it will work if needed."
    Staff Representative

  • Lou Mendes
    "ChlorTainer is a big money saver, especially compared to scrubber solutions. It meets the fire code and exceeds all other standards.  And the dual vessel makes auto switchover of a new container practical. In fact, it virtually takes care of itself."
    Lou Mendes
    Cement Hill Water Treatment Plant, CA
  • Rick Roll
    "Safety for our operators and the surrounding area [was the primary concern]. The locking door adds extra security from prying hands. It seems to be a fool-proof system. Simplicity is the best ticket."
    Rick Roll
    North Little Rock, Arkansas Water Treatment Plant
  • Ben Yoder - General Contractor
    "The containers are very well built and I am confident in their ability to contain a leak. As for maintenance, such as annual checks of valve seals and gas levels, the need as extremely low.”

  • George Clifford White - Consulting Engineer
    "It is always preferable to avoid any Hazmat occupancy because OSHA requires a six-man, trained response team to respond to any release of toxic gas. Since many facilities do not have a six-member team available to address a release. Hazmat occupancy environments are not practical. Total containment is the safest and most cost effective treatment system available."

  • Ed Main - Remote Systems Technician
    "The required maintenance on the ChlorTainer vessels is almost nothing."

  • Allen Jones
    "I would have no problems recommending ChlorTainer to anyone looking for a secondary containment system. The best secondary containment there is, is the one you never have to use."
    Allen Jones
    Springfield, OH Water Treatment Plant
  • Veteran Potable Water Production and Treatment Superintendent
    "It’s pretty much worry-free. We haven’t had any cylinders leak into the containment vessel yet, but it’s still good to have the added safety, with chlorine storage located near population centers. And whenever we’ve needed to make a phone call in the last four years for service or spare parts, the manufacturer has jumped to it real quick.”

    Ottawa has had its two One-Ton ChlorTainer vessels since 2004. Thirteen years down the road, Snethen says of the company, “They’ve kept up on their existing customers, not just their new customers.”
