Hazardous storage cans are used to safely store, transport, and dispense flammable or hazardous liquids. They are
typically made of polyethylene, 24-gauge galvanized steel, or 24-gauge stainless steel. (Gauge is a measure of
thickness; the lower the gauge, the thicker the material.) Hazardous storage cans come in a variety of styles, such as
Type I cans, which have a single spout for filling and pouring, and Type II cans, which have a flexible metal hose for
pouring and a second opening for filling. They are often color-coded for different liquids (for instance, red cans for
gasoline, blue cans for kerosene, yellow cans for diesel fuel, or green cans for oil). Other common features include
flame arrestors, which help prevent the liquid inside the can from igniting, and seam welds, which help prevent leaks.
Certain hazardous storage cans are FM Approved, and many meet National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and
Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards for the storage and handling of flammable liquids.
Hazardous storage cans are used in a variety of commercial and industrial environments and can also be suitable for home
