OCLANSORB
OCLANSORB is a nontoxic, nonabrasive organic blonde sphagnum peat moss harvested from the bogs of Newfoundland. It is a lightweight, natural hydrocarbon absorbent: more cost effective, more efficient absorbency power, and easier to use than any other products.

WHAT IS OCLANSORB?

  • A nontoxic, nonabrasive organic blonde sphagnum peat moss harvested from the bogs of Newfoundland.
  • A lightweight, natural hydrocarbon absorbent: more cost effective, more efficient absorbency power, and easier to use than any other products.
  • OCLANSORB is the component used in all socks, booms & kits.

WHAT DOES OCLANSORB DO?

Absorbs hydrocarbons by encapsulating them on contact. Requires less product for storage and disposal. 1 lb. of OCLANSORB will absorb approximately 1 gallon of oil. Absorbs hydrocarbons on contact and resists taking on water.

  • Will reduce up to 90% of combustible vapors upon application due to its high vapor suppression capacity.
  • Removes ALL free oil from spill sites upon extraction.
  • Absorbs hydrocarbons on land, on hard surfaces i.e., asphalt, concrete, motor pool parking lots, and on water.

HOW DOES OCLANSORB WORK?

  • Absorbs hydrocarbons quickly with its capillary action and porous structure.
  • Encapsulates hydrocarbons, including PCB's - on contact - taking in the hydrocarbon, rather than allowing the hydrocarbon to attach to the outer surface of the product.
  • Has a 5% moisture level which aids in its high absorbency rate. OCLANSORB goes through a patented process.
  • Easy to apply, easy to clean up.
  • Leaves behind no messy residue after clean up.

WHAT ARE OCLANSORB'S ADVANTAGES?

  • Safe for the environment nontoxic, and biodegradable.
  • Passes the North American Leachate Standards. Will not release captured hydrocarbons in the environment.
  • Reduces man-hours required for cleanup.
  • Absorbs all oil based products including PCB's and oil based paint.
  • Requires less product for for spill cleanup which cuts cost.
  • Less product used means less volume hauled and disposed of in the landfill. SAVES VALUABLE LANDFILL SPACE.
  • Can be incinerated. On its own will contribute 7,200 BTU's per pound during incineration (excluding POL products.) And leaves behind only 0.42% ash residual.
  • Recycling and biodegradability are major environmental concerns. OCLANSORB is the answer to these concerns.
