UltraTech International, Inc., leaders in the environmental compliance industry was recently awarded U.S. Patent No. 9,944,046.

Find out more about the Ultra-Containment Berm.
The Modular Model Ultra-Containment Berm uses polymer-coated, triangular shaped pieces of foam to provide a sidewall structure. Once all of the foam pieces have been arranged (typically in a square or rectangle), the area is covered with a heavy-duty PVC material. The compressible foam can be driven over without being damaged so tanker trucks, oilfield vehicles, and other equipment can be loaded into the containment area ensuring the surrounding area is safe from any environmental harm.
A molded-in slot in the top of all of the foam pieces is designed for rebar or steel rod and secures the PVC material in place during day-to-day operations.
“Our customers came to us with a need for a spill containment solution that was flexible and adaptable enough to meet the ever-changing requirements of the oilfields,” said Global Sales Director, Tim McGrath. “Finding a solution was our top priority. So our team designed the one-of-a-kind Modular Containment Berm that fit the bill perfectly.” The Ultra-Containment Berm, Modular Model has been successfully deployed by hundreds of customers worldwide.
