Why Is Spill Control Important?
Why does that matter? Absorbents can control spills before they spread and create dangerous slip and fall conditions. Absorbent pads and rolls can soak up a variety of liquid spills. Absorbent pillows control spills in tight spaces that are hard to reach. Absorbent socks and booms manage spills by containing and absorbing liquids. Loose absorbents can clean up non-toxic or chemical spills.
Because our goal is to help support high levels of productivity and to limit equipment downtime. The cost of non-compliance around this area of regulation can have devastating effects on a business’s reputation and financial performance.
Absorbent Pads and Rolls
Get the job done at a lower cost. These high-loft economical absorbent pads save you money without compromising performance.
- Perforated: Select exactly the size you need
- Dimpled: Adds durability & reduces linting
- White, Gray, or Yellow Colors: reducing the urge to replace absorbents before fully saturated
“Melt Blown” absorbents are the industry standard for rapid cleanup of oil on both land and water. The right material to do the job quickly and easily.
Pillows absorb large quantities of liquid quickly and are ideal for placement under leaky equipment or drum. Specialty absorbent products like pillows can be used around a facility when a pad or roll may not be sufficient. The unique style of these products allows you to place the absorbent exactly where you need it.
Absorbent pillows are ideal for use under spill pallets or machines that are known to drip or leak. Pillows are easy to retrieve and can soak up oil and water-based fluids in hard-to-reach areas including sumps, catch basins and outdoor ponds.
Types of Spills
Water- or Oil-Based Spill Control
Use around machinery, under leaky pipes, in messy traffic areas or for general maintenance projects. Sim Supply universal absorbents made of recycled materials offer an environmentally friendly solution.
Oil-Based Fluid Spills
Oil only absorbents are specially designed to clean-up oils and petroleum-based liquids while also repelling water and floating indefinitely. Unaffected by temperature and impervious to rot and mildew, oil only absorbents are an ideal choice for outdoor use, in bodies of water or anywhere that water may be inadvertently absorbed.
All oil-only pads and rolls start with a highly absorbent polypropylene core. From there, it’s all about the application. Product families feature different weights, coverstocks and finishing to provide the right solution for your needs.
Hazardous Spill Cleanup
Hazardous Chemical Spill Control
Surfactant-treated polypropylene absorbents can be used on a wide range of chemicals, including hydrofluoric acid. They are chemically inert, so they will not react with aggressive fluids. Keep in mind that absorbents take on the properties of whatever they absorb, so the bright color provides a visual indication to separate waste streams.
Alert your employees to the presence of hazardous fluids with green and yellow chemical absorbents from Sim Supply. These surfactant-treated polypropylene pads and rolls can be used on a wide range of chemicals and are chemically inert, so they will not react with aggressive fluids.
