Pump Requirements

  • Each ISU will have multiple pumps (either electrically powered centrifugal pumps or AOD pumps) to remove the spilled liquid
  • 480V/30A per ISU for electrically powered centrifugal pumps
  • 400 CFM @ 100 PSI per ISU for AOD (Air Operated Diaphragm) pumps
  • 120V/25A per ISU for the control panel

Fire Water Requirements

  • 450 GPM @ 100 PSI water supply per ISU for fire water to the QR in-rack sprinklers

Municipal Water Requirements

  • 90 GPM
  • For flushing water, a booster pump is standard per ISU to ensure correct pressure
Height Width Depth Footprint*
60-IBC 3 IBCs 20 ft (6.1 m) 4 IBCs 16 ft (4.9 m) 5 IBCs 41 ft (12 m) 656 ft² (60.9 m²)
90-IBC 3 IBCs 20 ft (6.1 m) 6 IBCs 25 ft (7.6 m) 5 IBCs 41 ft (12 m) 1,025 ft² (95.2 m²)
120-IBC 4 IBCs 26 ft (7.9 m) 6 IBCs 25 ft (7.6 m) 5 IBCs 41 ft (12 m) 1,025 ft² (95.2 m²)

This is based on a standard 275-gallon composite IBC. 1-2’ is added to the total height for 330-gallon composite IBCs.

*Stand-off distance in between ISUs should be 6 ft.
