This happened a little over a year ago, when one of our barrels was pierced by a piece of equipment, and back then, we had absolutely no way of stopping such a leak, so we had to use a manual pump to transfer the liquid from the pierced barrel into a new one. Fortunately it was not a dangerous product, or else I cannot imagine what the consequences could have been, had we been dealing with a hydrocarbon or any other flammable substance.”
Every week I receive an email focusing on health and safety and this one spiked my interest and curiosity.
There was an ad for a product that had just been on the popular TV show “Dragons’ Den” that was intended to do just that, stop leaks quickly.
I directly went to take a look at the demonstration video and see who I could buy this product from, to realize it had been on the market for quite some time already. I bought a 3 unit kit of a product called The RuptureSeal™.
Now, we are definitely ready to avoid these types of accidents and prevent any major leaks from happening. I recommend this product to all companies who wish to be proactive in preserving the environment.”
