These absorbents are available in a wide variety of shapes and sizes and are sure to take care of the oil spill regardless of scope or location. Their versatile design and durable construction combine to provide efficient and thorough hydrocarbon clean up. With the unique ability to repel water while absorbing oil, these products perform better than standard, all-purpose cleaning supplies available at retail.
All these high-quality oil absorbing products are capable of consuming up to 25 times their own weight in hydrocarbons without taking in a drop of water. Once absorbed, these products are able to trap the oils inside for proper disposal. Here's a brief description of what makes each type of sorbent unique and ideal for specific oil cleanup applications.
Booms: The original. These booms are ideal for both land and water-surface oil absorbency and containment. They can easily be linked together to form a custom length for the specific spill site.
Socks: Highly flexible, tube-like absorbents that are often curved around a hydrocarbon-storing container. Their durable construction makes them suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.
Pads: These are often used to detect oil leaks as well as aiding in the cleanup process. These pads can be easily wrung out.
Wipes: Perforated sheets for custom-sized hydrocarbon cleanup. These are a great addition to any mobile spill response kit due to there versatile design and widespread application range.
Rolls: Perfect for larger scale cleanup. With over 900 square feet of durable polypropylene fiber, you'll never have to worry about running out of oil sponging material.
Pillows: Ideal for placing under leaking equipment in your facility. The raised design allows for a greater concentration of absorbency.
Spill Kit - The perfect way to store and transport your oil sorbents to the spill site. Their durable, corrosion resistant design adds additional protection for the products before and after use. Available in a variety of sizes to suit your facility's specific needs:
- 5 Gallon Pail
- 30 Gallon Openhead Poly Drum
- 55 Gallon Openhead Poly Drum
- 95 Gallon Overpack Poly Drum
Secondary Containment: Prior to oil spills occurring, oil-storing containers should have a proper secondary spill containment system installed. Most municipalities require such precautionary devices to be implemented in order to avoid fines, etc. This will also greatly reduce the need for hydrocarbon cleanup and, should a spill occur, the scope of the spill itself.
Incinerators: These products are ideal for properly disposing of used, oil saturated sorbents. Check out our wide selection of Incinerators.
