ENR025 - 10 kg Bale (16 bales/pallet)
Enretech XtraSorb is a 100% cellulose oil and fuel absorbent for use on water. It is completely biodegradable and is produced from recycled waste cellulose materials. XtraSorb is highly oleophilic ("oil loving") and will readily attach itself to all forms of hydrocarbons. It will absorb up to 19 times its own weight in oil based products - even when wet!
XtraSorb has been designed to be used on small scale spills on harbours, docks, wharves, marinas, re-fuelling depots, beaches, bird sanctuaries, reefs or mangrove areas - wherever an oil spill could occur. XtraSorb may be used on its own (loose) or in the form of socks, booms, pillows, or bilge ‘rats’. XtraSorb can be spread over a spill surface and unlike most absorbents, will absorb trace water and eliminate sheen.
XtraSorb is particularly well suited as a filtration medium for removing hydrocarbons from storm water collection systems, sump pits and interceptor systems.
FEATURES & BENEFITS
Rapid absorption on water - XtraSorb’s rapid wicking action makes the product ideally suited for use in sensitive eco-systems. It is environmentally inert posing no dangers to flora, fauna or aquatic life.
Super absorbent - only small amounts of XtraSorb are required so it's highly cost-effective. The high buoyancy facilitates containment and retrieval. It is easy, safe to use and lightweight.
Produced from recycled raw materials - XtraSorb is 100% cellulose, biodegradable and non-abrasive.
XtraSorb is incinerable generating 15,500 BTUs/kg with less than 5% ash.
The protocol for the application of XtraSorb recommends that sufficient amounts of the product be applied to the surface of the spill to completely cover the spill. The spill will be quickly wicked up off the water and the spent XtraSorb can be retrieved by skimming or the use of nets. XtraSorb, that has been used to absorb C10-C36 petroleum hydrocarbons, has been granted EPA approval for disposal to solid waste landfill (regular garbage) in most States. However, always consult your local waste authority to ensure the proper disposal of used XtraSorb materials.
