Spill Absorbent Materials - Chemical & Oil Absorbents
Kraken oil spill clean up absorbents are one of the easiest ways to keep your site prepared for a spill event. Designed in models that can absorb oil, chemicals, fuel, and more, these absorbents are stored on site for quick access once a spill occurs. Industrial absorbents can be placed around spills, on spills, and underneath drips to capture chemicals and prevent further spreading around your site.

Absorbent Socks and Booms
Absorbent Booms: One of the most common absorbent materials for spill containment is the oil sorbent boom. Oil Booms are large in diameter to contain oil in either a water or land based area. There are other absorbents to clean up industrial spills and you can read this customer question about what kinds of Oil Spill Clean Up Fabric options we carry.
Absorbent Socks: Similar in design, spill socks are smaller in size and great for small leaks or spills around drums, tanks, or valves.
Absorbent Pads, Rolls, and Pillows
Absorbent Pads: Absorbent pads are one of the quickest absorbent materials to address small spills, leaks, and drips. Simply grab a pad and wipe away your spill!
Absorbent Rolls: For larger areas, rolls can offer the square footage required to clean up spills. Great for moderate spills or fuel transport areas.
For specifications, visit our Absorbent Roll Wipes page.
Absorbent Pillows: Sorbent Pillows are an ideal accessory for any location where high concentrations of oil are in one place.
Hose Bibbs and Wraps: Hose bibbs and wraps absorb small leaks and spill from the end of a hose (hose bibb) and the body of a hose (hose wrap). Both products have an absorbent pad built in to ensure that no liquids end up on equipment or the floor.
Industrial Rugs & Rail Mats: Highly absorbent, place these under vehicles or along popular foot traffic areas to absorb spills and keep the space safe. Fire retardent and chemical additives can be added to increase absorbency and boost safety capabilities.
Drum Toppers: Drum toppers are available in oil only or universal / general maintenance models. Drum toppers come with pre-cut holes for 3/4" and 2" bungs for 55 gallon steel drums. These pads keep leaking drums clean and easy to maintain, regardless of the contents of the drum. Oil only drum toppers are designed to exclusively absorb oil based hydrocarbons, and will not absorb water, while universal drum toppers will absorb all leaks and spills.

Secondary Spill Containment and Sorbent Disposal
Sorbents and Site Compliance: One of the most common reasons to implement the use of absorbents on your site is to meet spill requirements for your facility or warehouse. Any time you are storing hazardous materials, having a built-in plan to contain liquids or keep your site clean is often a requirement. Having sorbents on site can often help sites avoid costly fines and stay prepared for the event of an emergency.
Incinerators and Disposal: After absorbents have been used, they should then be disposed according the rules and regulations of your site. For areas with frequent disposal requirements, check out our wide selection of Solid Waste Incinerators.
