Model W - Absorbent


Absorbent W  particulate is designed to contain and control hydrocarbons (oil-based liquids) while repelling water.  Absorbent W is made from wood pulp reclaimed from the manufacturing of paper products.  Manufactured through a patented process, it absorbs oil immediately on contact while repelling water; it even floats when saturated.  The hydrocarbons are absorbed into the cellulose fibers, preventing leaching in and draining commonly associated with polypropylene sorbents.  The performance attributes of Absorbent W particulate make it ideal for clean up of oil-based liquids in the presence of water.

Competitive advantages of Absorbent W over polypropylene and clay absorbents:

  • Absorbs liquids within fibers vs. absorbing liquids on fibers exterior only
  • Absorbs immediately on contact, faster than polypropylene and clay
  • Absorbs up to 2-3 times more volume than polypropylene absorbents
  • Retains the liquid absorbed; prevents leaching and draining of sorbed liquids
  • Absorbs all hydrocarbons while repelling water
  • Absorbs up to 7 times more volume than clay sorbents
  • Floats, even when  fully saturated, for easy retrieval
  • Anti-static
  • One 50-quart bag of Absorbent W is equivalent to one 50 pound bag of clay in volume of liquid absorbed
  • Filter medium; alternative to carbon, sand and earth
  • No free silica—prevents health problems (silicosis) associated with clay and diatomaceous earth
  • Non-abrasive to machinery
  • Works in all temperatures, sub-freezing to hot
  • 100% organic—environmentally friendly
  • Increases options for disposal
  • Landfill—won’t leach/drain even under compression, eliminates free liquid problems
  • Incinerable at low temperatures (industrial boilers, etc.)
  • Bioremediation—will break down to natural organic elements with use of microbial enzyme action
  • Environmentally responsible from origin to disposal
  • The environmentally alternative to polypropylene

Absorbent W   booms absorb hydrocarbons while floating and repelling water.  Made from reclaimed wood pulp, Absorbent W booms absorb oil immediately on contact.  The absorbed liquid is drawn into the cellulose fibers through capillary action and locked into the boom.  This process prevents leaching and draining which is a common problem with polypropylene booms.  The performance attributes of Absorbent W booms makes them ideal for spill response applications.
