We are in the process of renovating a bulk solvent storage room in our Chemistry building. We will be dispensing from 5 gallon containers. We previously dispensed from 55 gallon drums. We are in the design phase for shelves, racks and dispensing systems and want to maximize storage space while finding the best dispensing tools to help minimize spills. Our stockroom has priced square and round 5 gallon containers and we are now looking into dispensing racks and tools.

If you currently dispense solvents from 5 gallon containers then I am looking for your insight on what set up you have in place and what works best for you (or what did not work well). Suggestions on products you use such as rotating dispensing racks for gravity dispensing would be great.

Thank you,
