Safely mixing and dispensing hazardous chemicals is a daily necessity for many manufacturers. But, mixing, dispensing, and storing Class 1A or 1B flammable or non-flammable chemicals can release hazardous fumes into the atmosphere. These fumes must be monitored and proper ventilation is vital when combining potentially harmful substances. A chemical mixing and dispensing storage building can potentially alleviate the risks associated with mixing and dispensing.
U.S. Chemical Storage provides custom single and multi-room chemical mixing and dispensing storage buildings. These multi-room units allow for multi-process isolation applications, as well as separate storage. Optional customizations include climate control, fire suppression, explosion proof interior and exterior lighting, egress doors with panic hardware, emergency push-button alarms and more.
Built to your requirements for your specific application, each mixing and dispensing room includes a containment sump to capture spills. Structures come completely assembled and ready to install by connecting electrical, plumbing, ventilation ductwork, and sprinklers as applicable. Our mixing and dispensing buildings are portable and can be relocated as your needs change.
Chemical Mixing and Dispensing Storage Building Benefits
Separate hazardous processes from the normal working environment by using pre-engineered mixing and dispensing buildings as process isolation rooms. Built for your specific application, buildings can be manufactured to comply with NFPA, IFC, and EPA safety regulations.

1. What is a sump or secondary containment in reference to chemical storage buildings?
The definition of a “sump” is a pit or reservoir providing containment for spilled liquids. U.S. Chemical Storage offers leak proof spill containment sumps in each standard model. This sump is then covered by a steel or fiberglass floor grating and is can be equipped with a “sump liner” of a plastic nature to provide resistance to accidental spills.
2. What size building do I need?
Building size is determined by the amount of hazardous material you are planning to store, the need, if any, for working room around these materials, and must take into consideration the most efficient way of moving these materials into and out of your chemical storage building.
3. How should my chemical storage building be designed?
How will the building be used? Will it be a permanent structure or a temporary storage location? Will there be frequent movement of materials in and out of the building? Will chemicals be handled inside of the building? Answers to these questions will dictate fire rating as well as the need for mechanical ventilation or explosion relief panels.
