Fluidall’s new multi-fluid Work Bench Tank efficiently stores and dispenses automotive fluids and lubricants in confined shop spaces. The workbench encloses multiple single-walled polyethylene bulk storage tanks in a built-in secondary containment vessel.
The workbench doesn’t sacrifice form or function, complete with a 69x36-inch work surface that’s available in stainless steel, butcher block or matching powder coat finishes.
Because the fill ports are below, the workbench surface will stay free of oil residue. It can also be equipped with either an oil tapp dispense or a universal side-mounting shelf utilizing Graco’s fluid handling equipment.

Box Away Trash
Shops wanting to reduce their environmental footprint can start boxing their unusable automotive parts instead of throwing them away. TerraCycle’s newest launch — Zero Waste Boxes — make nearly all automotive waste recyclable.
There are two sizes to choose from. An automotive small parts box — which is big enough to hold a variety of parts from serpentine belts to roof racks — or the no-separation box — which is able to hold all categories of waste without having to sort or separate anything.
Zero Waste Boxes vary in price; costing $63 to $299, depending on the size of the box. When the box is full, it is shipped to TerraCycle for processing. Shipping costs are included in the price of the box.
