EAGLE Type I Safety Cans for storing gas

Keeping fuel fresh, from the lawn-mowing spring to the snow-blowing winter, is critical for the longevity of motors. Red Type I and Type II safety cans from Eagle maintain a fuel’s flashpoint with 24-gauge hot-dipped galvanized steel bodies, baked-on powder-coated finishes, and dual-interlocking bottom seams. Eagle safety cans are among many safety storage solutions that help homeowners and crews store potentially hazardous materials or valuable tools securely after use.

Different Cans for Different Fuels

Eagle Type I and Type II safety cans come in different colors to designate the specific petroleum-based product they contain. Red cans are for flammable liquids like gasoline. Yellow cans are for diesel fuel, while blue cans are for kerosene, normally used as lighting fuel. Green cans are for storing combustibles such as acetone and cleaning solvents. The color designation is an important safeguard typifying the unique features of various other safety supplies and protective gear available for the home and workplace.

How They Pour

Type I safety cans have one opening, which is used for both pouring and filling. Type II safety cans have two openings, one for filling and pouring and the other for venting the can to let gas pour more freely. You close the vent when storing the can, to prevent flammable fumes from escaping. Eagle cans have safe spring-loaded caps that sit tightly on neoprene gaskets and come with non-sparking flame arrestors. Eagle Type I safety cans have a yellow high-density polyethylene (HDPE) funnel to facilitate pouring, while Type 2 models come with a flex-hose spout to reach into the openings of fuel reservoirs.

Eagle Type I safety cans in poly material

Eagle also offers its single-opening safety cans in HDPE material. These rust-free cans meet OSHA safety requirements, and are impact resistant and non-corrosive. Like galvanized steel cans, they come in different colors for specific product designations, and they are clearly labeled as an added safety precaution.

Different size containers

Like the array of safety cans and drums that are available for containing fuel and other potentially hazardous substances like oily waste, Eagle cans come in different sizes:

  • Type I galvanized cans come in 2-quart and 1-, 2-, 2.5-, and 5-gallon sizes.
  • Type II galvanized cans are available in 1-, 2.5-, and 5-gallon sizes.
  • Type I poly cans come in 3- and 5-gallon sizes.

Each size offers its own specific application, storage, and budget convenience.
