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
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
Recycling and biodegradability are major environmental concerns. OCLANSORB
is the answer to these concerns.
