Type II Safety Can

Definition - What does Type II Safety Can mean?

Type II safety cans are specifically engineered cans that are designed to contain hazardous liquids in a way that reduces the likelihood of explosion. Unlike a Type I can, Type II cans have two spouts, one for pouring and one for filling.

Safeopedia explains Type II Safety Can

Safety cans are designed to hold no more than five gallons, and are usually made of high-density polyethylene, which is known for its strength. Safety cans are equipped with a spring-closing lid and spout cover, allowing for the release of pressure if the can is exposed to fire. They are designed to hold flammable and combustible liquids and reduce the risk of explosions.
