Any leakage or spillage of fluids used in the extraction and
production of the resource can cause severe environmental damage. This threat
has prompted stringent regulations requiring secondary containment systems to
catch any spillage from leaking vales, overfill or leakage from storage tanks
housing hazardous fluids.
Halo Environmental limited is one of western Canadas leading
providers of secondary containment systems for the oil and gas and construction
industry. Founded in 2004 the company focuses its efforts on providing
effective and cost efficient solutions to help keep the environment clean for
The industry standard today is to use large roll out
conventional liners which are melted together and also require additional
hardware to assemble. This causes numerous seems and stress points throughout
the liner which causes issues. In addition to that there is also a thick layer of
ground cover placed overtop to prevent against UV damage and slips and trips.
However this impedes the ability to integrity check the liner throughout the
life of that secondary containment system.
Halo Environmental is developing and delivering innovative
solutions to overcome the challenges associated with traditional secondary
Conventional liners are old technology they have been around
for over 20 years and they are a one dimensional solution for a 3 dimensional
Halo has developed new processes and new techniques to solve
these 3 dimensional problems. Halo uses spray on polyurethane liners to solve
the problems of the oil and gas industry.
Halo provides its clients with secondary containment
solutions that feature a unique spray applied polyurethane liner.
We live in some of the most extreme conditions anywhere on
the globe. We have to be proactive in the products and solutions we provide.
Our polyurethane spray on liners has been applied in temperatures as high as 35
degrees Celsius and as low as minus 50 degrees Celsius.
The ability to provide this secondary containment solution
year round is revolutionary to our industry.
Halo’s polyurethane contains no volatile organic compounds
making it safe spray in any area. Polyurethane Coatings are used as secondary
containment liners for tank farms, loading facilities, above and below ground
storage areas, concrete sumps and trenches, and facility roofs just to name a
The product starts to gel within 15 seconds, and is able to
be put into service within the hour. During that cure time the product filters
into the porous space of the substrate that we are bonding to and creates a
very strong mechanical bond.
In addition because the product is UV resistant it eliminates
the need for ground cover making integrity checking very simple to do.
Halo’s polyurethane liners have lasted in lab testing for
over 13 years, there has been no deterioration, no cracking, nothing has gone
wrong with the product. We have been called in many time to replace the
conventional LDP liners because they just don’t stand up. Halos quality control
process is second to none.
Halo’s spray applied polyurethane secondary containment
solution protects the environment from oils, acid, caustics, produced water,
gas vapours, and many other contaminating materials.
Halo’s spray applied polyurethane liners have proved to have
an excellent life expectancy. They have great corrosion and abrasion
resistance, they have very strong adhesion, and they are easily applied in cold
The polyurethane liner is used in conjunction with Halos
engineered zero ground disturbance metal secondary containment walls.
As the gas and oil industry continues increasing production
to meet demand, there will be more and more infrastructure in need of secondary
containment systems. Halo Environmental is aggressively growing its presence in
the industry providing new effective environmentally friendly and efficient
solutions to an old industry.
