Solvent Storage

Solvent Storage Cabinets

Solvent Storage Cabinets

Laboratories require the use of flammable solvents within  their processess, however storing solvents in the laboratory is a major fire risk. Traditionally solvents have been stored in single skin steel cabinets, or at worst in fumehoods or on workbenches. In the event of fire, these unprotected solvents catch fire or explode, spreading the damage and putting fire fighters at risk.


Trying to overcome this risk, many laboratories have external solvent stores and analysts retrieve solvents from these stores whilst holding minimal stock in the laboratory. Although this seems like a good idea it creates new risks such as spillage during transfer, instruments running out of solvent or employees becoming injured through falls with solvents or over carrying bottles.


To overcome these issues, Elite Measurement Solutions supply solvent cabinets designed to hold large volumes of solvents within the laboratory. These cabinets are certified to EN14470-1 standards for protection of the solvents in the event of a fire and come in a variety of sizes and styles.
