IFH Group, a manufacturer of storage and dispensing systems for industrial fluids, oils, and lubricants, is offering a fire safety kit for customers who need to be in compliance with strict fire safety regulations.

The kit replaces the standard PVC sight gauge on the front of the containers with a fire-resistant glass sight gauge equipped with ball check fittings at both ends to prevent any product spillage if the glass should break.

Underneath the containers, the standard PVC hose is replaced with a steel hose that connects to a fusible link valve with a spring-activated handle. If the temperature reaches 165 F (73.9 C), the handle is automatically triggered and shuts off any possible leakage of fluid from the container.

The fire safety kit can be supplied with new IFH storage and dispensing systems or as a retrofit to existing systems, according to the company. “It provides a ready-made solution for our customers who need to be in compliance with stricter fire safety regulations,” said Larry King, Midwest regional sales manager for IFH.
