All of Pryco’s
day tanks (including double walled versions) may
be fitted within an open-top, secondary container
or dike, referred to at Pryco as a Rupture Basin.
All Rupture Basins are U/L Listed - #MH12807,
“Open Top Diked
Aboveground Tank for Flammable Liquids”.
Rupture Basins are available in
either 150% (option #385) or 200% (option #386)
models. Both are sized according to the accompanying
day tank. (Note - 200% Rupture Basins are required
in the City of New York.)
Rupture Basins, like all Pryco
Tanks, are fabricated of heavy gauge steel by
certified welders. Each tank complies with NFPA
30. Since a Rupture Basin is open-dike, it cannot
be pressure tested.
Each Rupture Basin has a drain the same size as
the day tank and a ½" NPT Threaded
Pipe Connection for an optional #295 or #395 Leak
Detector. Also as an option (#341), the inner
tank drain may be piped through the outer shell.
The Rupture Basins are painted Pryco (medium)
Gray or an industrial color of choice.
A Weatherproof Cover (Option #
335RB) with a plexi-glass inspection port may
be included to preserve the integrity of a dry
container, especially when an optional leak detector
