Secondary containment calculation
secondary containment detail

Brock standard containment come in four shapes:

Round       
Standard diameter ranges:
15 feet to 60 feet (3 foot increments)
Standard wall heights:
22 inch, 36 inch and 44 inch
Capacity:
1,771 gal (42 barrels) to 64,746 gal (1,542                       
barrels)
Larger round dimensions and special configuration are available
Oblong      
Standard dimensional ranges:
Width: 15 ft. to 60 ft. (3 foot increments)
Length: start at 24 ft. and increments 9.375 ft
Standard wall heights:
22 inch, 36 inch and  44 inch
Capacity:
3,188 gal (76 barrels) to 168,338 gal (4,008barrels)
Larger round dimensions and special configuration are available
Constructions of containment walls are easy to get to
the job site and take little time to install. Maintenance
is little to none,  which makes the ongoing cost less
than dirt berm containment. Brock containment takes
up a smaller footprint then dirt. Brock containment is
ideal for jobs where land is at a premium or the
shape warrants less square footage to be utilized by
containment.

Round containment do not need support legs,
so no ground penetration.
Round sides of containment do not need
support legs, but straight side require support
legs.  Oblong containment lends itself for future
tank battery expansion.
All  straight side require support legs.  Square and
rectangle containment lends itself for future tank
battery expansion in any direction.

2 body sheets x 3 body sheets =
225" W x 337.5" L =
12,204 gal or 288 bbl.
