OSHA compliant Oily Waste Cans are essential when using solvent soaked cloths and wiping rags. Rags and cloths soaked with thinners, linseed oil, combustible adhesives, and other flammable liquids present a serious fire risk when discarded improperly. The specially designed lid opens no more than 60 degrees and stays closed when not in use. This isolates the contents from fire sources and limits oxygen, virtually eliminating a risk of spontaneous combustion. All cans feature a galvanized steel body construction with durable powder-coat finish. 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.
