SAVIOUR® Oil Absorbents
SAVIOUR® Oil Absorbents are made from Polypropylene. Polypropylene is inert synthetic fibers which has high absorption capacity. They are available in a wide range of formats and are light weight and nominally dust-free. They are typically available in White Colour and with Orange colour net in some formats.
SAVIOUR® Oil Absorbents are OIL ONLY sorbents. They are typically used on water to contain and adsorb hydrocarbons that are on the surface or in an emulsion in the water. They will float on water and at the same time repel water (as long as surfactants are not also present). They can also be used to control of hydrocarbon spills on land.
SAVIOUR® Oil Absorbents are available in different formats like Long Booms, Mini Booms, Pads, Rolls, Pillows, Sweeps. Combination of these formats is available in Spill Kits of different absorption capacity.
Typical Liquids Adsorbed
SAVIOUR® Oil Absorbents are suitable for adsorbing hydrocarbons and non-polar organic solvents, eg., oil, paraffin, diesel, benzene, alcohols, toluene, trichloroethane, esters and ethers.
Absorption / Sorbency
SAVIOUR® Oil Absorbents capacity quoted in the table below is based on testing per ASTM F 726-12 “Standard Test Method for Sorbent Performance of Adsorbents.”
