Spill absorbents

Spill control should be on the agenda at every yearly management meeting for those who run an industrial site. The spillage of hazardous liquids can have a damaging affect on the environment and can cause serious health issues for your employees. If you haven’t got a spill control and containment or cleanup procedure in place, now is the time to look at what is involved.

Spill containment and cleanup equipment:

Absorbent pads

One of the most commonly used spill cleanup items, absorbent pads can be quickly and easily deployed and are available in specific types to deal with fuel, oil or chemical spills.

Absorbent pillows

Absorbent pillows have a much larger absorbency factor then absorbent pads and are the perfect spill clean-up device for collecting pooled liquid. Their multi-purpose shape means they can be pressed into tight spaces to stop the overflow of a spilled liquid and they come in types that can absorb chemicals, oil and general purpose liquids.

Absorbent socks

Absorbent socks are not just great at absorbing spilled liquid; their long slender design can be used to create a barrier that stops the liquid contaminating further areas while still absorbing the spill.

Absorbent granules

Absorbent granules are perhaps the quickest type of absorbent material to use in an emergency. Because you control the amount of granules you use, you only have to deploy what is needed saving money and resources.
