  • What’s the difference between Type I vs Type II safety cans?
  • Type I safety cans have only one opening used for transferring, filling, and dispensing of liquid. These are commonly used to fill containers with large receiving openings such as rinse or cleaning tanks. Type II safety cans, on the other hand, have two separate openings. One is a dedicated opening with lever for filling and a second one with an attached flexible metal hose for more controlled dispensing when pouring into containers with small openings.
  • More unique Type II gas cans include:
  • Type II D.O.T. Safety Can has the same two openings as a standard Type II but it includes an additional roll-bar and fusible-link protected hold down bracket for protection during over-the-road transport.
  • Type II AccuFlow™ safety can from Justrite® guarantees a smooth and glug-free flow. It features a patented, easy-to-use Safe-Squeeze® trigger for a more accurate liquid flow.
  • What color do you need?
  • In warehouses where different fluids or fuels are used, color-coding serves an important safety measure.
  • Red is for flammable liquid like gasoline and is the most widely used choice in most industries today. Over 70% of total sales are in red safety cans. The other colors available for safety cans are Yellow for diesel, Blue for kerosene, and Green for oil combustibles. Always take time to learn to identify and segregate fluid containers within your facility to prevent fire risks and accidents.
