Public spaces are a common place to find the results of unattended messes and unclean conditions. Schools are one such location, despite their dedicated janitors on staff, and some problems slip through without notice. That is why it is so important to keep your eyes open for the signs that danger is present.
Our organization was founded in 2003, but we’re definitely not new kids on the block in the sorbent industry. Nor are we merely a sales organization with an office and an answering machine.
Transformers are built to last. One would expect them to remain active and operational for long periods of time.
Convenience is always an important factor when thinking about any product. There are no spill kits more convenient than the Spilltration SmooshKit. Vacuum sealed, these easy to store kits are the key to handling spills on the road or at an unfortunate location. When a traditional spill kit is too big to fit where you need it to, the SmooshKit is the perfect amount of portable.
White sorbents have been used to mop up spills in the rain for decades. They can be very effective and make up a significant number of the products we provide. They are designed to absorb oil, not water.
Many of you are still using lightweight traditional absorbents for small spills or in an effort to remove that rainbow sheen from wet asphalt and waterways. I have been in this business for 25 years and the solution to this problem has always escaped us until now!
Over time transformers age and develop leaks from aging gaskets, rusting and stressed joints, along with a host of other problems that can increase.
There are two main processes for capturing oil using sorbents: retention on the surface of the sorbent and retention within the sorbent.
A big part of a typical spill control plan addresses secondary containment of any leaks from storage drums. This typically involves spill containment pallets and decks as well as containment berms and drain seals.
The simple answer to how much it costs to clean up an oil spill is thousands to millions to billions of dollars. It is, of course, not a simple question. And, there can be no simple answers.
