Model No 26753 complies with NESAM (National Emissions Standard for Aerospace Manufacturing) by offering a gasketed, spring-loaded self-latching and vented lid with rotary latch mechanism to seal the drum, thereby preventing vapor release. It automatically closes via gravity when released and then automatically latches, preventing the drum from being left open by mistake. This eliminates the chance for oxygen to enter and start a fire.

Durable steel construction with powder-coat finish provides excellent chemical resistance. Ideal for the aircraft, furniture, and printing industries or anywhere solvent-soaked cloths are used.

Frequently Asked Questions

How fire resistant is your Oily Waste Can?

Justrite Oily Waste Cans (OWC) are manufactured galvanized steel a fire resistant material as required by OSHA 1926.252(e). But there is more to an OWC design than that. The OWC self-closing lid limits the inside of the OWC of the oxygen that is required to support combustion. The self-closing lid guards the contents from sparks or other heat sources. Oily rags can create an exothermic chemical reaction from the polymerization of oil drying in the absence of air. This is a chemical reaction known to start fires. Always store oily rags in an approved OWC.

Can I use poly liner bags in my Justrite Oily Waste Can?

We discourage the use of liner bags in Oily Waste Cans (OWC). The liner can interfere with the OWC's lid fully closing. A liner can also create a path for an oxygen supply to the bottom of the can. Both conditions defeat the purpose the self-close lid and its ability to deprive the container of oxygen, which inhibits combustion.
