Spill containment & control
Containing spills, identifying liquids, absorbing and disposing of them. Above all, when dealing with leaking hazardous liquids, the following is important: what has to go has to be handled safety and without damaging the environment. Our large range of absorbing agents has the right product if the worst comes to pass.
Absorbent agents – absorbent sheeting and other absorbent agents
Waiting to see isn't an option in the laboratory and workshop when liquids start to escape. After all, many oils, alkaline solutions and acids present a danger to people and the environment. This is why professional leak management is of key importance for hazardous goods handling in companies in all different sectors. You'll find that KAISER+KRAFT has everything you need to ensure everything stays dry in every situation.
Prevention and reaction – the two pillars of spill control
Prevention is, as is well established, better than the cure. So too does spill control primarily aims to prevent liquids from escaping onto the floor in the first place – a preventive measure, so to speak. Also, should something end up being spilled, then hazardous substances need to be collected quickly and in full, or be removed, before they can cause any major damage.
You need the right absorption agents for both. You can purchase different versions of them from us, with everything from simple absorbent sheeting to a mobile emergency station with a full range of equipment available from us.
Absorbent sheeting for every requirement – highly absorbent and versatile
Absorbent sheeting is the be all and end all in leak management. The cloths might not exactly look spectacular, however they have a lot to offer. One absorbent sheet measuring 40 x 50 cm can absorb up to 1 litre of oil. Paper towels can't compete with that. The highly absorbent and lint-free absorbent sheeting is perfectly suited to be put down on surfaces as a preventive measure, or for removing any escaped liquids quickly and in their entirety. Furthermore, they are also suitable for cleaning sensitive machinery, tools and systems.
Which sheeting is the right one to use when is indicated by the colour:
- Yellow is suitable for chemicals
- Blue is suitable for oils
- Grey is suitable for many different liquids (including weak chemicals)
The different colours are also decisive for disposal.
Along with this, the thickness and the structure of the absorbent sheeting matters. Open sheets with multiple layers are even more powerful than single-ply or reinforced versions.
