Questions to Help You Identify the Kits Your Facility is Likely to Require

  1. Does your facility store or work with acids, alkalis, solvents, oils, or unknown liquids? Our UniSorb™ absorbents can handle spills of these liquids. See the specifications for each product to determine how many would be needed for your facility.
     
  2. Could you have spills involving oils, fuels, lubricants, and other hydrocarbon fluids? Our OilSorb™ Spill Kit would be a good choice for these liquids. See the specifications for each product to see how many would be needed and which type is best suited to your facility.
     
  3. Might you have spills which are non-aggressive liquids like oils, coolants, solvents and water? Our CleanSorb™ Spill Kits are well suited to these types of spills. See the specifications for each product to see how many would be needed and which type is best suited to your facility.
